Dessert is a way of life in my house, and now that I live in a country where there’s not a chance you’ll have to wear a swimsuit at any given moment, it seems that everyone else enjoys a bit of cake or biscuit in the afternoon almost as much as I do. Winter is the perfect time to turn on your oven and bake your face off, so here are 10 totally awesome winter desserts you can make yourself and share with friends. Or not. I won’t tell.
My mom’s peanut butter fudge recipe has been viewed almost 30,000 times, and it deserves every single one. This is my very favorite thing to eat. You really need to try it right now.
Something about toffee makes me think of winter, and that’s why you should make this caramel toffee cheesecake right this minute. Also because it’s awesome and tastes like a dream.
Chocolate chip bread pudding is great for using up stale bread, and it’s made with rum. You’re going to have to buy some for Santa anyway, right? Maybe leave him some bacon, too. He’ll like that.
Peppermint is everywhere right now, and I’m so happy about it. These mint brownies can be made red or green, so get to it.
White chocolate chip brownies are equally rad, plus, they sort of look like snow, I guess. Whatever, just eat them and be happy.
Salted caramel pudding is so many kinds of good I don’t even know where to start. This recipe has such a deep flavor and an outstanding combination of textures. It’s basically irresistible.
It’s not Christmas without Classic Fudge. It’s a close second for best food in the world. You’ll definitely want to make both.
Pumpkin cake is everything you ever dreamed of topped with silky cream cheese frosting. Don’t wake up. Just live in the pumpkin dream.
It’s a tough call, but I think these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are definitely in the top five of best cookies I’ve ever eaten. It’s the maple syrup that really does the trick. Must have.
Chocolate cinnamon bread is actually cake, but it’s definitely loaded with chocolate and cinnamon, and it’s definitely so so awesome. Make tea, eat cake, be happy.
So, what’s your favorite winter dessert?
