When you were 16, what did you think your life would look like? Does it look like that? Is that a good thing
Ok, I have to be honest.. I can’t remember that far back! I hardly remember what I did yesterday, true story. So Mr Desperado nudged me in the direction of doing my top sixteen favourite desserts. You may notice the common theme of chocolate but do stick around folks, you may see something you like 🙂
A nice and simple, last minute kinda dessert
15. Knickerbocker Glory
Perfect for when you just want to arrange instead of bake
14. Black Forest
A killer dessert if made correctly, the first time I made it, it took me 3 hours!
If the cooking time says ten minutes, take them out at 7.. delicious gooey cookies XD
12. Red Velvet
Fun to make and even better to eat 😀
11. Chocolate Brownies
An old classic. A dusting of icing sugar or a layer of melted and cooled chocolate to take them to the next level
Some say overdone but there are so many variations to be getting on with. My personal favourite being coffee and chocolate!
9. Gulab Jamun
A dessert of Asian origin, these are lovely when warm with a nice scoop of cold vanilla ice cream
8. Chocolate Fridge Cake
Another delicious no bake recipe that you can personalise to your own taste
7. Eton Mess
Something perfect to throw together at the last minute
I prefer mine non-alcoholic with coffee and hot chocolate! Another one you can learn to personalise
5. Cookie Dough with Ice Cream
Another guilty pleasure dessert. Salted caramel goes nicely with the choc chip cookie dough
4. Chocolate Bowl
Longer process to get this right but goes down a storm with kids and adults alike
3. Chocolate Cheesecake
There are many variations of cheesecake but this is my go to
2. Chocolate Ganache/Cake
An extremely rich and dense piece of heaven..
1. Chocolate Pie
One of my all time favourites and extremely easy to make 🙂
Hope you all suffered as much as I did whilst making this post! I kid, try them out and let me know how they were 😀
Ah, nothing beats dessert. I actually do remember my 16th b-day (sense I’m only 17). It was Duck Dynasty themed which I thought was hilarious. It wasn’t anything big because 1) I always share with my step dad and 2) I don’t believe in big sweet 16 parties. What’s the point anyways?
My favorite dessert is defiantly pavé (full disclosure I don’t know it that’s how it’s actually spelled) which is a Brasilian dessert made with chocolate, condensed milk, and this crust like thing. It’s the most heavenly thing I’ve ever tasted. My great grandma always makes it for us when she’s over.
