Dessert Sweeter than the wine...any pairings that work?

We are having another couple over for dinner for a 4 course meal with wine pairings on Friday and I can't decide what to do for dessert.

Both my husband and I will drink dessert wines when presented to us in pairing or wine tasting situations, but we really don't love them and when I asked the other couple about the their food//wine preferences they told me they pretty much drink all wine but dessert or sweet wines.

So, while it might not be a match made in heaven, any thoughts on pairings that may work with a wine that is less sweet than the dessert?
