The best thing about Christmas time? Using it as an excuse for, basically, everything. Binge eating? It’s Christmas. Having more than two, or three, or four slices of cake? Heck, it’s Christmas. Going on an impulse shopping spree of takeaway goodies because of the endless plethora of sweet treats and gourmet gift sets? It’s Christmas, for goodness sake. So here’s a list of dessert-perfect favourites we’ll be tucking into this glorious yuletide season.
