For as long as I can remember, I’d always been dubbed as the “family sweet tooth”. I think my parents coined this nickname when I started ordering ice cream balls for an entree at restaurants (I was a Daddy’s girl, so anything I asked for with pleading eyes, I got). Looking back, it may have also come from the time I ate the entirety of my chocolate advent calendar solely on December 1st. Whatever the case, my point is: I’m a raging sugar-lover. That’s why I’ve decided to share my absolute favourite dessert ideas with you all (and the fool-proof kitchen appliances that’ll help you make them with ease).

Whether you’re looking to cook up a sweet storm for your Christmas guests, whip up some treats for the kids’ school teachers, or are just hoping to keep the little tackers preoccupied for more than five minutes over their summer school holidays, boy, have I got you covered.

Churros are by far my favourite dessert in the whole entire world, but to my great disappointment, I live 30 minutes away from my closest San Churro. That’s why when I saw this Churro Maker, I had to pick one up for myself. All I can say is start melting your chocolate, baby.
