We love Christmas pudding here at UKMums.tv but we know that there are lots of people out there who just can’t stand it! So, we’ve scoured the shops to find some alternatives which will hopefully go down just as well after the turkey on Christmas Day!
Taste the Difference Sicilian Lemon Tart – £10.00
Your family and friends will be asking for more once they’ve tried this wonderfully tangy Sicilian lemon tart encased in an all butter pastry. Topped with a sweet glaze and decorated with dark chocolate and icing sugar, this is the perfect dessert for those with a sweet tooth.
Heston from Waitrose Chocolate Bucks Fizz Swirl – £13.49
Inspired by the classic cocktail, an orange compote centre sits in a chocolate mousse infused with Marc De Champagne, all on a popping candy base for extra fizz. Now if that doesn’t sound fancy, we don’t know what does!
Tesco Finest Croquembouche – £15.00
These 60 (yes, 60!) Choux pastry profiteroles are filled to the brim with cream and come with a pot of caramel sauce, indulgent Belgian chocolate sauce, glittery stars and popping candy to decorate. This croquembouche comes as a kit for you to assemble at home, so this will be a fun activity for your guests to get stuck into after dinner.
The Collection Melt-in-the-Middle Chocolate & Salted Caramel Christmas Pudding – £10.00
Taking a twist on the classic Christmas pud, this rich, velvety chocolate sponge serves up to six people. A gooey salted-caramel centre sits at the heart of this pudding and comes with a white chocolate-flavour sauce, red lustred biscuits balls and edible holly leaves to decorate with at home – the kids will love adding these finishing touches. Overall, this makes for a very indulgent alternative to the traditional fruit filled pudding.
Deluxe Luxury Crumble Tart – £2.99
Available in the classic combos of rhubarb and custard or salted caramel and apple, these luxurious tarts have a crumbly shortcrust pastry base and have been baked in the heart of the West Country. To finish, serve the tart with custard, cream or ice cream.
