Fantastic Christmas Desserts to Try During This Festive Season

1. Ben & Jerry’s

Ben & Jerry’s is bringing the Cone-Deer (price varies depending on your choice of ice cream) back this yuletide season and it’s sure to be a big hit again among kids and those with a weakness for the ice cream parlour’s euphoric creations.

The adorable treat consists of a scoop of Ben & Jerry’s finest (of your choice), served in a house-made waffle cone, with salted pretzel antlers, and chocolate drops for eyes. Unlike Rudolph’s very shiny nose, the Cone-Deer has a very tasty nose instead – a dried cranberry, just in case you’re wondering.

Think chocolate log cakes are blasé? The zesty Citrus Matterhorn Yule Log ($76, 1kg), which is made of lemonade mousse and grapefruit orange coulis, is a wintry spectacle that should do the trick.

4. Duxton41

Set up by two fitness enthusiasts who love all things related to baking, the duo at Duxton41 have somehow managed to create a creamy and smooth Christmas Log Cake ($27 for one, $50 for two) that is deceivingly decadent, without using copious amounts of refined sugar.

It’s the perfect guilt-free alternative, especially after you’ve busted your recommended daily caloric intake with that fourth helping of maple-glazed Christmas ham and extra-buttery mashed potatoes.

Along with the Log cakes, Duxton41 offers an indulgent but sugar-free High Tea for only $38. It comes with a complimentary pot of tea but if you are feeling extra this season, you can add a glass of Devaux Champagne at a discounted price.

Talk about having your cake and eating it.

5. Famous Amos

There’s perhaps nothing more satisfying or nostalgic as a dessert than a Famous Amos cookie. And during every Christmas season, the confectioner never fails to whip up a yuletide special that is sure to delight cookie fiends. This year, they’re offering an X’Mas Fun Pack ($12.90) which consists of a Cookie Snowman, Green Galaxy Swirl, and Red Milky Way.

As always, Famous Amos cookies are best enjoyed when they’re passed around friends and family after a Christmas dinner and accompanied by an ice cold glass of milk.

6. Glasshouse by DHM

Glasshouse is a multi-concept dining destination that offers (almost) everything from steaks to tapas. But besides being the perfect venue for a Christmas dinner between friends or family – with wildly varied appetites and tastes – the establishment also offers unique sweets that are informed by the season’s flavours.

How unique? Think Spiced Apple Cider & Cranberry and Holiday Mint Chocolate Éclairs ($6, for one), as well as the Winter Wonderland Gingerbread Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting ($14, a slice). Trust us, they’re the perfect end to a hearty meal.

Besides the meaningful conversations between you and those present at the table, of course.

7. Hustle Co.

If sweets aren’t really your thing and you fancy yourself a craft beer aficionado, why not gather a couple of likeminded friends and stop by Hustle Co. for a few pints of Angry As A Bull and Green Monster instead? The scarlet lager and green spirulina-infused beer are both brewed by locally owned microbrewery RedDot BrewHouse and are just two of the 12 craft beers on tap that are rotated on a fortnightly basis.

While the Green Monster is available at RedDot BrewHouse perennially, the ruby beverage is a Hustle Co. exclusive that is only available during this Christmas season.

Can’t decide which to get? The establishment is currently offering craft beer pints at $8.90 during Happy Hour (from 5 to 8pm on weekdays, and all day on Saturdays). So feel free to order as many red and green brews as it takes to really get into the spirit of Christmas.

8. InterContinental Singapore

The humble fruitcake is a Christmas classic that is often indiscriminately used as a doorstop or tossed out for being leaden and cloyingly sweet. However, InterContinental’s Carousel Fruit Cake ($98, 800gm) is anything but.

Apart from being the prettiest fruitcake we’ve seen by far, we like that the cake has a well-balanced ratio of rum-kissed, candied fruits to cake base. And after a taste test by a ShopBacker – who is also an expert baker – we learnt that it was also basted in brandy to help it stay moist.

The fondant icing adds a welcomed touch of sugary goodness, which should make this a big hit with your party guests. Oh, and did we mention that you can enjoy an exclusive 5% discount if you purchase yours online?

9. L’éclair by Sarah Michelle

For the perfect Christmas dessert that your party guests would be talking about for months on end, look no further than L’éclair by Sarah Michelle, who makes speciality éclairs that are almost too pretty to eat. This holiday, the patissier has created six Christmas flavours: the mildly alcoholic Strawberry Cognac, the quintessentially Christmas Chestnut & Fig, as well as a Blackforest éclair which is filled with 64% dark chocolate crème.

Pictured below (from left to right) are the Paris Brest (praline cream), White Chocolate Cranberry, and the Blood Orange Chocolate.

10. Neon Pigeon

This modern izakaya (Japanese bar) is renowned for serving “Progressive Japanese” fare, which is Head Chef Justin Hammond’s take on Japanese flavours with an innovative twist. Naturally, Neon Pigeon’s Christmas dessert is anything but boring as it is a playful iteration of the classic eggnog and gingerbread men that is often served after everyone’s stuffed with turkey. Speaking of the big Christmas bird, Neon’s Pigeon Yakiturkey is a must-try!

If you order the Miso Caramel Eggnog, it will be served in glasses with a side of Gingerbread Ninjas ($10, one set). Perfect for dipping into the creamy, sweet beverage which has just a hint of savoury from the miso.

Your favourite Hawaiian-inspired hang-out doesn’t want to miss on the festive spirit and prepared a few Christmassy items with a twist.

Try their Candied bacon chocolate milkshake is made with Milo, Cacao Barry chocolate fudge, dark chocolate chips, salted caramel vanilla ice cream and, of course, candied bacon!  This savoury-sweet combination may raise some eyebrows, but it works!

Eggs n’ Things are known for their fluffy pancakes but during December the pancakes are taken to another level. This item is generously served with a stack of four ginger and nutmeg pancakes topped with toffee sauce, and loaded with apple cinnamon and crumble.
