Winter is the perfect time to indulge in some new culinary delights, especially if those delights happen to be winter desserts! Just because it’s cold outside, it doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to something sweet. Smooth ice cream may not be high on your winter dessert wish list, but there are still so many delicious desserts that can not only satisfy your sweet tooth but can also warm you up from the inside out (plus, a side of ice cream with these dishes never hurts!). Best of all, you can try those desserts right here at Canberra Centre. Whether you’re looking to try a new dish out on date night or make something new at home, at Canberra Centre you’ll be able to find a new go-to warm winter dessert that satisfies your cravings.
This is an underrated winter dessert that’s not just great to indulge in yourself, it’s also the perfect thing to add to your winter dinner party menu. Pudding can be served warm and on its own, but it also goes incredibly well with custard or a scoop of your favourite ice cream. There are also a massive variety of flavours to choose from like sticky date, toffee, and classic chocolate, so there’s always a new combination to try. If you want to give warm pudding a try, pop into INKA for a quick taste or dive in by grabbing the ingredients from Coles or Aldi (or a boxed mix, we won’t tell!) and your favourite sides to whip up your new favourite winter dessert pudding at home.
The most elegant winter dessert — chocolate fondue. If you’re looking for a more luxurious dessert experience for either date night or by yourself (because who’d want to share their chocolate?!), then fondue is for you! Chocolate fondue definitely sits in the ‘easy winter desserts’ category, not just because it’s quick and simple to make, but it’s also easy to serve! All you need to do is make sure your chocolate stays warm, so you can completely cover your selection of sides in the gooey goodness. If you’re wanting to indulge in this warm winter chocolate dessert, visit Raku and choose from their wide selection of treats that are dip ready. If you’d rather stay at home, pop in to Coles or Aldi and stock up on your favourite flavour of chocolate and treats for dipping, to create your own unique fondue to keep you cosy all winter long!
Brownies are a classic dessert that you may have eaten with your family for years and years. However, have you ever tried warming up your brownies to allow the gooey insides to pour out onto your plate alongside a scoop of ice cream or a river of warm custard? If that sentence made your mouth water, then you should drop into Canberra Centre and visit the Coffee Club or La Sable. Their brownies are some of the best in town and will instantly heat you up after a long day of shopping. Alternatively, you can purchase ingredients from Coles or Aldi and take them home to create and enjoy your own brownies while watching your favourite comfort movie. Make sure to grab ice cream from Gelatissimo or Anita Gelato or custard from Coles to accompany your warm winter treat!
When you think of iconic winter desserts, hot chocolate usually comes to mind. Although it’s a drink, a classic hot chocolate is still one of the best winter desserts to indulge in, because you can enjoy it on the move and tailor it to suit your tastes. If you’re wanting to warm your hands and your stomach up while you’re shopping here at Canberra Centre, you can pop into Godiva or Greenhouse and they’ll whip up one of the creamiest hot chocolate’s using your milk of choice. For anyone who’d like to create their own winter dessert beverage at home, Godiva, Haigh’s Chocolates or Gewurzhaus have a rich drinking chocolate you can add to your pantry, that also goes incredibly well with a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg or chilli powder sprinkled in. Also, don’t forget to grab marshmallows from Coles to top it all off!
Now, when we’re talking about warm winter desserts, we can’t forget cinnamon donuts. Whether you prefer to eat them during the day or as an after-dinner treat, there’s no denying that cinnamon donuts are a great on-the-go dessert. Eat it while sipping on your new drinking chocolate from Godiva or Haigh’s Chocolates or pop into Coles when you’re in-centre to get a fresh cinnamon donut.
As you can see, there are so many wonderful winter desserts to try that don’t just taste amazing, but they’re also able to keep you warm during this chilly winter season. Whether you’re into the classics like hot chocolate and cinnamon donuts or are looking to try something new like sticky date pudding.
