8. Chocolate Truffles

Chocolates are the ultimate indulgence for me. But the festivities do call for something indulgent, don’t you think so? A chocolate truffle is a type of chocolate confectionery, traditionally made with a chocolate ganache centre coated in chocolate, cocoa powder or chopped toasted nuts, usually in a spherical, conical, or curved shape.

9. Guava Cheese Perad

Guava cheese is a popular sweet prepared during Christmas! They are made of 3 simple ingredients plus Guava‘s of course. These are sweet with a pronounced guava flavor and a little sour, fudgy and melt in the mouth at the same time, if it is prepared correctly. Yet another of those extremely addictive sweets!
