Its Christmas people! Christmas eve does bring with it the heightened excitement that comes with the season; oh and the flurry of activities to ensure friends and family have something great to eat when they visit on Christmas day. The usual items on the menu around these parts are usually rice, traditional meals (especially pounded yam lol.) and some types of snacks – Chinchin and cake always wins every year.
Guess what, it would be great to switch things up this year with the food and especially with the deserts. The best thing about this idea is you can look up the recipes and make them in your home. Here are some ideas to make sure Santa is a guest in your home this Xmas.
Nutella Swirl Cheesecake Bars
If you’re a nutella fan you are going to love these creamy nutella swirl cheesecake bars. Smooth and creamy Cheesecake bars on a buttery graham cracker crust with swirls of Nutella is enough to seal the Christmas lunch.
Frozen Strawberry Yoghurt
Need I say more? Even my mouth is watering as I write this. The frozen strawberry yoghurt is a great way to eat healthy while snacking yummy. Quick and easy to make and sugar free too. This is even a good desert to share in many ways with your other half *wink*
Ah Brownies! Everybody needs a brownie recipe in their home, not just for the holidays but because it is an all time goodness. Moist and chewy brownies with the perfect crust will make your Christmas lunch a memory for your guests.
Chocolate Chip Truffles
Just look at these, how can you resist having them on the table this Christmas? They taste especially good after they have been kept in a Ziploc in the fridge for a day or so ( I am sure you are thinking homemade Malteesers, I am too). Make this your choice for a merry celebration.
December is all about cookies and we know it, so here is an easy to make dessert choice for this season. With the goodness of real coconut and chocolate, this will be a major hit this Christmas.
As much as we would all like to be super-cooks and have these made at home, with the rush and Christmas pressure, we may not get down to it. However, be sure to go to the confectionery stores and pick up some tasty and ‘uncommon’ desserts for your home this season. Here is wishing you a fun celebration.
