It's never too early to start planning for the holidays! We are so excited about the upcoming holiday season we wanted to share some of our favorite Italian Christmas dessert recipes. These classic desserts are so delicious they'll be a great addition to your holiday celebration.
Take a trip around Italy with some traditional favourites. Try some classic northern treats, and baking the quintessential Christmas Italian treat of Milanese Pannetone or the Tuscan fruit and nut laden Panforte. Head to Southern Italy for decadent Struffoli and ricotta fritters. Or stick with some classic crowd pleasers like jewelled semifreddo, hazelnut chocolate cake or a chef touch tiramasu.
The best part? They'll be made by scratch.
Panettone is a quintessential Italian Christmas treat laced with fruit, citrus and cognac. Made in miniature size, it makes for a sweet party favor or holiday gift.
Excellent when paired with Vin Santo, a sweet dessert wine, panforte is a must at an Italian Christmas gathering. You'll love this chocolatey version.
Christmas in Italy doesn't get much sweeter than this Neapolitan classic. Sweet dough is fried until crispy then coated with honey and sprinkles for an decadent treat.
