Showstopping desserts for your Christmas feast

Christmas is just around the corner, and we’ve got a whole host of ideas and inspiration to help you enjoy the festive season.

While pigs in blankets and deliciously crispy roast potatoes might be the winners for some people, we just love a showstopping dessert to round off one tasty meal. Check out our recipes below and treat your loved ones to a showstopper of a pud to round off the day.

Something chocolatey…

Chocolate is sure to go down well with your festive dinner guests. And what a way to create a showstopping pudding than with our recipe for Spiced Chocolate and Hazelnut Meringue Gateau. Featuring layers of chocolatey goodness and crisp meringue, create shards of chocolate to decorate this delicious dessert.

When all the food has been served up and it’s time for a post-feast coffee, continue the Christmas cheer with our showstopping recipes for Chocolate Truffles. When served with a hot drink, they’re a delicious way to add a little wow factor to your dining, and with only three ingredients, they’re super simple to make too.

Something traditional…

It’s a treat every year, and whether you decide to light it or not, you can’t beat a piece of traditional Christmas Pudding on the big day itself. Make sure you soak your currants, raisins and sultanas overnight to make this pud extra moist and juicy. Check out our recipe here.

The classic trifle is a pudding that’s sure to have marked numerous occasions over the decades. In our recipe, we’ve put a little twist on this traditional dessert to make a tasty Clementine and Panettone Trifle. It’s easy to make, and will be ready to serve in just 30 minutes.

Something for the children…

Fruit-filled traditional puds are not always going to be a favourite of the little ones at your Christmas dinner table, but thankfully, we’ve got plenty of options to keep little tums full. Try this recipe for Pretzel and Chocolate Reindeer Cupcakes – you could even get the little ones involved in designing their own reindeer friends.

Another recipe that’s sure to wow the children, these Christmas Pudding Rice Crispy Cakes make a tasty treat. Featuring crunchy peanut butter and crispy Choco Crackles, there’s not a currant in site in these mouth-watering mini puds.
