Have you thought about varying the classic Christmas recipes and leaving them with that more Brazilian touch? In the last few days, Paulo and I were even questioning the way we celebrate the date here in Brazil, after all, everything is thought of as if we were at the height of winter in the northern hemisphere. Nothing against those classic and delicious foods, but what if we vary a little bit this year? I even made a post here on the blog about tropical Christmas decorations and why not put our touch on the holiday desserts?
I made a selection of 9 dessert recipes for you who want to innovate in the Christmas celebration! It has everything from a classic waltz dream pavé to a passion fruit cheesecake! I hope the recipes inspire you 😉

Although cheesecake is not a traditional Brazilian recipe, it has already become classic at Christmas. To Brazilianize this wonder, nothing better than adding a typical fruit: guava!
BRIGADEIRO AND STRAWBERRY CAKE
Impossible to talk about Brazilian sweets and not remember brigadeiro! This naked cake is ultra-shredded with brigadeiro and will definitely be eaten at supper 😉
