Five alternative dessert recipes for your festive celebrations

Looking to switch things up this Christmas? Here are five alternative dessert recipes for your festive family celebrations this year.

When I'm tucking into my turkey dinner, I can't help but think about what's to come after dinner! So, we thought we would share some unreal alternative dessert recipe inspiration with you guys to add an extra bit of sparkle to your festive celebrations.

We've teamed up with Chivers to do just that. These sweet treats won't only satisfy the whole family but will give you a chance to spend some time together in the kitchen creating them. After what can only be described as a bonkers year, it's time to 'take a moment, to make a moment' with Chivers over Christmas.

Chivers has a wide range of jams, marmalades and jellies that are ideal for helping you create something really special for the people you love over the festive season.
