8 Sweetest Dinner and Dessert Pairings


Let’s be real here, there’s always room for dessert. Even the most evil dictators still found time to satisfy their sweet-tooth, Chocolate Moussolini Mousse anyone? It’s the most important meal, because it’s the last thing dinner guests will remember before they have to walk off that delicious flourless chocolate cake. Life is but a bad dream sometimes, so take a few to “treat yo’ self”. Home Chef teamed up with Red Velvet to give you the most velvety dinner and dessert pairings out there. Dessert-free dieters, you may want to close your laptop now.
