CHICAGO, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Food Channel® (foodchannel.com) has released its "Top Ten Dessert Trends for 2014," sponsored by Otis Spunkmeyer®. The popular report looks at market trends around sweets and treats. Based on research conducted in conjunction with CultureWaves®, the list identifies the significant behaviors of consumers, foodservice professionals and manufacturers, with original recipes and photographs to illustrate each trend.
The Food Channel Top 10 Dessert Trends for 2014:
- Spoon Desserts – Puddings and other soft desserts—called "spoonables"—are big.
- Layers - We are layering just about anything, so the recipe here is for a way to dress up the Otis Spunkmeyer Angel Food Muffin with a layer of jam and a cheesecake topping.
- Hand Pies - The mini dessert has finally extended itself to the pie.
- Midwestern Influence - One of the big trends for 2014 is Midwestern foods, and when it comes to desserts that means cobblers, pies, crisps, tarts, upside down cakes, and bar cookies.
- Mashups and Muffins - Muffins are the new doughnuts, or what some are calling the duffin.
- Pepper, Flavored Salts, and International Spices - New desserts on the menu are heavy on the stronger spices. Cracked pepper is particularly on the rise.
- Dessert Butters - These are actually ground up cookies turned into a soft filling that is perfect for rolling into a truffle or adding to a sandwich cookie, such as the PB and Chocolate Cookie.
- Crepes - People are looking to add adventure to their repertoire, and crepes fit the bill.
- Nuts - Nuts are big in desserts right now, particularly as we tally up the health benefits.
- Small Batch Desserts - We don't have to make enough dessert to feed an army to be satisfied; we've discovered it's OK to just make a little.
