Five simple desserts sure to impress your guests

Last updated

Whether it’s following a big meal or accompanying an afternoon cup of tea, nothing marks the sweetest moments in life like a table of sweet delights.

With only a few select ingredients, you can create a memorable dessert or a sweet talking point for your next party.

Pink Biscuits de Reims: Made in France and beloved in Paris, these crisp pink biscuits with a subtle rose flavour are brought to life when dunked into a glass of champagne

Alfajores: Sandwich our decadent Dulce de Leche between two shortbread biscuits to make this moreish South American favourite

The ultimate cheese course: Elicit gasps from your guests as you pull a whole wheel of camembert from the oven, drizzle it with truffle honey, and slice into it. Be sure to have plenty of lavosh nearby.

Chocolate-covered churros: Couverture chocolate is designed for cooking. Available in dark, milk and white, it’s perfect for tempering, baking, coating, crafting and melting.

Drizzle melted dark couverture over warm churros for a show-stopping dessert.

Petit fours: We’ve spent 30 years finding the finest producers of chocolates and confections around the world, such as Francois Doucet’s fruit jellies and Le Petit Saunier’s caramels with fleur de sel.

Nearer to home, Zokoko‘s bean-to-bar focus make them one of Australia’s finest chocolate producers, while Malouf’s Spice Mezza make the county’s best lokum (Turkish Delight).

All the key ingredients you need to make these sweet mouthfuls are available at your nearest The Essential Ingredient store. Or buy online for delivery to anywhere in Australia.
