If you're after a fitting chocolate treat to spread the Valentine's Day love, you'll find it hard to go past the Baci. An indulgent morsel of chocolate and hazelnut, wrapped in foil with a love note inside, and named after the Italian word for kisses? Now that's amore.

And once again, your mates at Piccolina Gelateria have taken the concept and run with it, creating a new Baci-inspired gelato cake guaranteed to have your boo (or just you) swooning on February 14.

This year's limited-edition Valentine's treat comes in the form of the Baciami (a more passionate variation of "kiss me") — a Baci-shaped frozen cake featuring hazelnut gelato, Frangelico hazelnut croccante and gianduja ganache, along with the signature Better than Nutella gelato and a hazelnut dacquoise.

In a nod to the original, this supersized version is glazed in dark chocolate and packaged in the tell-tale silver foil. And in a win for Valentine's Day gifters, the wrapping also hides a love note — inspired by one featured in Frank Sinatra's Baci collaboration back in 1962.

Clocking in at $28, the Baciami is big enough to serve two, making the perfect date-night dessert. Pre-orders are now open, with pick-up available from all six of Piccolina's Melbourne stores.
