Like every year, Valentine’s Day comes with a whole slew of expectations.
The standard trio that won’t go wrong? Flowers, a nice dinner (whether you’re eating out or dining in) and some chocolate.
The last one is, of course, sometimes a bribe. After all, the bite-sized morsels are known to contain Tryptophan, an amino acid used by the brain to make serotonin, the neurotransmitter that produces feelings of happiness. Read: even if the dinner is bad and the flowers are less than satisfactory, chocolate truffles can make your partner feel happy and blessed.
Yet, there are those who want to go by another route, with enough trust that the meal they’ve prepared and bouquet they’ve ordered will put a bright enough smile on their face to make you feel like you’ve done a good job. We completely understand.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite Valentine’s Day desserts in Singapore that aren’t all about the usual chocolate truffles. Read on for the full list.
