7 Christmas Desserts to Impress

7 Christmas Desserts to Impress

Christmas desserts have to take some of the blame for those extra few pounds we put on over the festive season. If you’ve over-indulged at Christmas lunch then why not go all the way and indulge at dessert time too. Here are some mouth-watering Christmas Desserts, like this cheesecake trifle in the glass from Woman’s Day, that look so irresistible your guests won’t be able to say “I’m too full”.

1. Pavlova

Strawberries, cherries and raspberries – the red screams Christmas and what better pairing than the deep reds of berries with the creamy vanilla of pavlova. You can be creative and make mini-pavlovas for everyone, or make a big Xmas wreath, even a tiered Christmas Pavlova Tree will add a fun twist.

2. Trifle

Everyone’s favourite guilty pleasure. Put your trifle in a glass, make it into an iced trifle slice or make it a chocolate cheesecake trifle – as long as it has some Bailey’s or Sherry – nobody will complain.

3. Figgy Pudding

Many will say it’s not Christmas until the Figgy Pudding is on the table. To the non-Aussie readers, that’s the Christmas Pudding. You can go with the traditional one or mini ones.
