Here’s How You Do Desserts For The Whole Family This Christmas

Sponsored by Aldi.

Ah, Christmas pudding and decadent desserts. There’s really nothing better than tucking into something scrumptious in the festive season. Christmas dinner can get a bit chaotic, so we’ve rounded up the best desserts from Aldi to make your after-dinner delights extra special with no extra fuss. From cakes, to chocolates, to crumbles and pies, we’ve got everyone’s tastes covered, (including your fussy cousins.) We challenge your whole family not to lick their plates clean!

For The Pudding People


It really isn’t Christmas without a pudding… or two… or three. (I’m sorry, but if there’s ever a day to over-indulge, it’s today.) So, indulge yourself and the whole gang around the table with the Golden Topped Christmas Pudding, the 12-month Matured Christmas pudding, and/or the luxurious Champagne Christmas Pudding. Fourths anyone?

For The Chocolate Lovers

It would be a sin to exclude something Chocolatey from your Christmas dessert line up. Just like the pudding people, the chocolate people are a passionate bunch. You have tonnes of options to satisfy their cravings, from the Chocolate Fudge Pudding, to the Belgian Chocolate Yule Log, the Chocolate Gateau to the delicious Melt in the Middle Pudding, (try it in Triple Chocolate or Raspberry and Prosecco!) We’re already drooling just looking at it all.

For Something A Little Different

There’s always spice and nuts fans in every family. They’ll definitely be eyeing off the traditional Tuscan Panforte. While for something a little out of the ordinary, you can entice the whole family with Aldi’s Italian Nougats, Hand Finished Mini Desserts or the decadent Croquembouche. Yum!

For The Little Ones

The kids always need something a little spectacular and creative… it is Christmas after all. Aldi’s Pre-Built Gingerbread House includes icing and sweets, so the little ones can get creative and decorate it themselves. They’ll also get a delightful surprise when they discover the Snowman Cake has a hidden centre of jellybean treats!

Don’t Forget The Mince Pies!

Mince Pies are a Christmas must-have. We’ve loving Aldi’s Exquisite Mince Pies with cute snowflake lids!
