Celebrate National Dessert Day With These Tasty Treats

by Gennefer Gross

 

From Thanksgiving to Christmas, and everything in between, Fall is frothed with holidays. But perhaps the tastiest of them all is National Dessert Day, a day when you can fully surrender to your sweet tooth without regret or remorse. Hashtag: #NationalDessertDayMadeMeDoIt.

When it comes to foods, few come close to the comforts of dessert… a warm slice of pie on a chilly afternoon, a decadent chocolate cake swaddled in frosting, or the silky swirls of ice cream in a bowl. The moment a tempting treat hits our lips, we’re instantly transported to a place where problems don’t exist, deadlines stand still, and stress disappears by the spoonful, especially if you have a Thermomix®.

The Thermomix® makes baking as easy as… well… pie, and with this roundup of foolproof recipes, your next indulgence will be a cake walk. Okay, okay, no more dessert puns!

What’s even better is that by creating your confections at home, you can work around food allergies or dietary intolerances like gluten or dairy. Knowing what your desserts are made of, you run no risk of adverse reactions, and can control what your family consumes without sacrificing flavor. You can also substitute sugary ingredients for healthier options instead of buying store-bought sweets, which are often loaded with fats, sugars, and other preservatives. And let’s not forget the cost savings. Why buy expensive puddings and pastries when you can whip them up at home in a snap?

Whether you use one of our many easy-to-follow Guided Cooking recipes, adapt your own recipes, or use the Thermomix® as a tool to take the hard work out of preparing delicate sauces or cookie dough, it’s quick and simple to achieve perfect results every time.

Sign up for Cookidoo ® to access these mouthwatering morsels, and make every day feel like National Dessert Day.

Apple Pie

It doesn’t get more Autumnal than apple pie, hot out of the oven, on a crisp day. With hearty hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, ripe apples, and a flaky, buttery crust, this seasonal favorite is sure to be a crowd pleaser, even if you’re just making it for a crowd of one. (We won’t judge.) Drizzle on caramel that you can melt easily using the Thermomix® mixing bowl, or top with a scoop of fresh made ice cream using our butterfly whisk, and you’ve got a treat that’ll keep on giving through the new year. You’re welcome.

Chocolate Almond Fudge

Our motto is: If you’re going to indulge, indulge hard. But you won’t need to work hard with this no-fuss fudge recipe from our Holiday Sweets cookbook that will transform you into a master chocolatier in minutes. Luxurious chocolate and roasted almonds are less than a half hour away, but these sweet and savory chunks will taste like they’ve been slow churning for days in the Swiss Alps. Spike your coffee with some Kahlua or Bailey’s Irish Cream, and you’ve got a wintertime retreat in the comfort of your own home. Hibernation never tasted so good.

Tiramisu

Complex flavors are a cinch with the Thermomix®, so set a course for the European countryside with this espresso-driven dessert that tastes like it was hand-delivered from your favorite restaurant in Italy. It wasn’t, but after one luscious bite, you’ll feel like you’ve been on vacation for a week. Bonus: seconds are encouraged… and free!
