3 Christmas Desserts That Will Wow Your Guests

It’s nearly that time of year where we gather with friends and family to celebrate Christmas, and the end of the year. Yet what gathering would be complete without a family feast, and delicious desserts to end the night.

We’ve compiled the 3 tastiest novelty Christmas desserts for you to easily recreate at home – with maximum wow factor!


Strawberry Santas

Simple, yet healthy(ish) these cute Santa can be enjoyed by all ages.

Cut out the stalk, place the large end down, chop the strawberry in half horizontally, pipe the middle with cream and add two chocolate dots (these are the eyes!). Then add a small dot of cream on the strawberries point, and there you have it – edible Santas!

Trifle

A kiwi classic, this easy to prepare dessert is sure to wow your guests, especially if served in glass, where each layer is visible. Prepare custard and jelly (semi-set) and allow to cool. Layer sponge into the bottom of the glass. Then pour a small amount of sherry onto the sponge. Place a layer of fruit on top then pour jelly on top so it surrounds the fruit. Allow to set in the fridge. Finally pour over custard, then repeat the above steps. Our suggestion? Ditch the fruit this year in favour of baileys, strawberries, chocolate mousse, whipped cream and chocolate shavings – inspo below!

Christmas Pavlova

Christmas Pavlova is a real kiwi tradition – and luckily it’s simple to make. For the meringue simply whip together 4 egg whites and 1.25 cups of sugar, pour into a round shape and bake in the oven at 150 degrees for 1 hour. Add your own toppings such as lemon curd, strawberries or chocolate!
