1. Apple-Rum Sauce

Sometimes the simplest touch takes a dessert from splurge-worthy to indulgent. This seasonal drizzling sauce is just the touch for everything from fruit to cake.

2. Chocolate-Bourbon Tart

This rich tart is like a dark-chocolate truffle in a crisp, flaky cocoa crust. Bourbon adds a wonderful smokiness; be sure to heat it carefully with the sugar so it doesn’t ignite.

3. Red-Wine Velvet Cake

Red velvet cake may be a perennial at children’s birthday parties, but there’s nothing childish about this cake. Red wine adds a sophisticated flavor note to this already rich and colorful dessert.

5. Rum Balls

Served chilled, these balls are formed when a batch of brownies is broken into bits, flavored with dark rum, and rolled. Just make sure these boozy brownie bites don’t disappear all in one night.
