The best festive desserts you can buy to add some magic to your Christmas dinner

You’ve got to admit that one of the best things about Christmas is all the food.

But while the spotlight is usually on pigs in blankets and turkey, for those with a sweet tooth, it’s all about dessert.

Some people might go for traditional Christmas puddings or even make their own fancy desserts.

However, there are plenty of delicious showstoppers available from the supermarket.

We’re talking elaborate chocolate creations, decadent cheesecakes and even luxurious vegan treats.
