As the last remnants of summer fade away, temperatures drop, and the trees display the gorgeous natural colours of autumn, it’s the perfect time to stay home and make the most of the season’s best culinary delights.
Autumn is the season of rich stews and warming soups – dishes designed to keep you warm from the inside out. However, it is the season’s desserts that really manage to steal the show. From classics like apple crumble and pumpkin pie to sweet treats like marzipan chocolates, there really is no shortage of delicious desserts to keep you going through the cold weather.
Here are some mouth-watering goodies sure to keep your sweet tooth satisfied this autumn!
Who doesn’t love a hearty, filling dessert when autumn rolls around? Although everyone has their favourites, some of the most popular choices are traditional staples that find their way to the nation’s dinner tables year after year. Classics like apple pie, seasonal fruit crumbles and sponge puddings are always popular, but in recent years, international favourites like pumpkin pie have also become increasingly popular.
Although there’s no denying that classic autumnal desserts are absolutely delicious, sometimes, a lighter alternative is preferred to a heavy dessert or stodgy pudding. There are plenty of recipes out there for lighter versions of the above classics – you can never go wrong with bitesize apple pies or a fruit crumble with granola instead of the traditional sugary topping. Alternatively, try experimenting with your favourite sweet seasonal ingredients to create your own healthy autumnal treats!
When the weather is cold, sometimes the best thing to do is to curl up indoors with a hot drink, a good book, and a few of your favourite chocolates to nibble on. Whether you prefer sweet marzipan chocolates like Niederegger or Anthon Berg treats, or something simple and classic like a chocolate selection box (sometimes it’s better to have a choice!), autumn is the perfect time to indulge your sweet tooth and treat yourself to a few mouth-watering chocolates!
