4 Desserts to Try Making This Winter

There’s something about winter and munching away on stuff. It’s most probably the cold that makes you want to keep your mouth busy. After all, eating is an excellent way of warming up.

That brings us to desserts.

Winter desserts are special. They’re cozy, sweet, and they exemplify the season. In a nutshell, we’d say: 

Winter desserts are wintry!

Now, with the cold season upon us, you’re probably eager to find out what other desserts you could try besides the usual. You’ve got several months to go, anyway, so the basic cheesecake may not cut it.

Time to try other stuff. Here are four amazing desserts to try making this winter:

1. Eggnog Ice Cream

This dessert is a delicious treat and the best thing to accompany your meals on a cozy winter day. The milky appearance is a testament to the frozen pecan sweetness.

Here’s what you need:

  • Several toasted pecans
  • Half a cup of chopped pecans
  • Rum extract
  • Cereal
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Melted butter
  • Nutmeg


Use a food processor to ground and mix the chopped pecans and cereals. Throw in butter and bake the mixture at about 350F. Once you notice the light brown edges, take the bowl out and set it aside to cool.

Combine the rum extract, ice cream, and nutmeg inside a bowl and stir. Now, spread the paste generously on your dessert and freeze it as desired.

2. Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding 

Chocolate and winter are basically inseparable. Who doesn’t appreciate the classic “chilling by the fireplace with a huge mug of hot chocolate”?

If you’re a fan, try a chocolate hazelnut pudding dessert as well.

What you need:

  • Melted butter and milk
  • Caster sugar and brown sugar
  • Self-rising flour and hazelnut flour
  • Cocoa powder
  • Hazelnut spread
  • Vanilla ice cream


Preheat the oven to about 355F.

Using a large bowl, combine and stir the hazelnut flour, self-rising flour, butter, milk, and the two types of sugars. Scoop the mixture into a dish and add the hazelnut spread.

Prepare a chocolate hazelnut sauce in another bowl adding brown sugar, cocoa powder, hot water, and hazelnut spread. Stir the content thoroughly and pour it over the pudding dish.

Bake your dessert for 35 minutes, set aside to cool, and serve with ice cream.

3. Gingerbread Cake

The gingerbread cake is a dainty treat, soft and effortless to make. With lemon-flavored cream cheese frosting, the cake may turn out to be a favorite for winter nights.

Like the classic cookies, the gingerbread cake will maintain the common ingredients like cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.

What you need:

  • Powdered ginger, cinnamon, and cloves
  • Flour
  • Baking powder and baking soda
  • Salt
  • Regular sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Melted butter
  • Eggs
  • Sorghum syrup

For the frosting:

  • Powdered sugar
  • Softened cream cheese
  • Unsalted butter
  • Grated lemon zest


Mix the flour, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, baking soda, and baking powder in a large bowl. Mix sorghum syrup and hot water in another bowl and throw in the eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla extract. 

Stir the mixture in the second bowl and combine with the first bowl. Apply some butter on a prepared pan and pour in the mixture. After that, bake for half an hour inside a preheated oven at 350F and then set aside to cool.

For the frosting, beat the butter and cheese in a bowl. Sprinkle in the powdered sugar and lemon zest and whisk the content for a minute before spreading it over the cake.

4. Cherry hand Pies

The juicy taste of cherries can be a welcome addition to your list of winter desserts. And if you’re looking to take a break from the tedious recipes, try out the cherry hand pies.

What you need:

  • Sugar, powdered sugar, salt, lemon juice
  • Halved cherries
  • An egg
  • Milk
  • Vanilla
  • Cornstarch


Simmer the sugar, lemon juice, water, and cornstarch in a pan until it thickens. Throw in halved cherries and stir for a bit, then let it cool.

Cut your pie crusts into 12cm circles and scoop some of the cherry paste into a piece of crust, then fold it. Refrigerate the pies for half an hour before baking.

When ready, bake your pies for about 20 minutes in a preheated oven at 175F.

Make the pie lacquer by mixing the milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Pour the content over cooled pies.
