2. Chocolate, Banana & Caramel Pie
Whoever you’re entertaining is bound to go crazy for this easy, no-bake chocolate & caramel pie from Afternoon Tea at the Cutter & Squidge Bakery. The custard is rich and chocolatey, but not too sweet, and is the perfect pairing with the sweet bananas and caramel and fresh whipped cream.
3. Vanilla and Chocolate Arctic Roll
From Fleetwood Mac to corduroy, the 70s are officially back, and we think this classic dessert deserves a comeback of its own. Serve it by itself or with custard or hot chocolate sauce on the side. Groovy! Try the recipe from Nordic Bakery Cookbook.
