Salty-sweet desserts

Rich, occasionally gooey and extra decadent, these desserts are all about the contrast of sweet and savoury.

Winter chills are best tackled head-on - with dessert. Warm caramel, swirls of chocolate ganache, smooth butterscotch frosting and syrupy puddings are the perfect antidote to cold, windy days.

But cloyingly sweet treats are no fun, so we've put together a tantalising collection of desserts that feature both sweet and savoury flavours. Think peanut-butter parfaits, notes of whiskey and sesame and salted caramel everything. Because it's all about balance.
