christmas desserts - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Christmas dessert in our house was a sort of brownie fudge sundae. It was mom's brownie recipe, cookie-dough ice cream, and some melted chocolate on top. I guess it would never have made the front cover of "Desserts Magazine" if that's a thing, but it was heavenly and it made our sugar-loving hearts sing.
The best Christmas dessert was our homemade gingerbread men. We stuck on chocolates with icing and, well, I guess you could say they looked "rustic." But then we made the Italian hot chocolate to dunk them in and, wow, that was Christmas right there for us. You could keep the cake and all the fancy stuff - if we had our silly gingerbread men we were happy.
Chocolate dipped shortbread and a bailey's coffee - that was Christmas desserts done and done as far as mother was concerned.
If you asked Nana what a Christmas dessert was, she wouldn't miss a beat, "Mulled wine and mince pie." I guess the things we come to love in childhood stick with us, they have the power to bring back good memories and lift the spirit. So no matter what, come Christmas Day, we got her what she wanted.
We did Christmas desserts "Nailed it" style, didn't matter what it looked like and the effort was always appreciated.
Sarah loved her Franken-desserts, and this Christmas it was the cupcake-mince pie. I was skeptical at first, but her enthusiasm one me over. She had one of those infections up beat personalities, the sort you have an urge to protect the same as a candle flame in outdoor air.
