December is when we usually say goodbye to our regular diet. Better not count calories so you won’t miss out on these special sweet treats that you can only get during the holiday season!

Krispy Kreme’s Holiday Doughnuts

There’s more to Krispy Kreme than its bestselling original glazed donuts. Be delighted with colorful holiday variants that include Dark Chocolate Holiday Tree, Snowflake, Snowman, White Chocolate Holiday Sprinkles, and Dark Chocolate Holiday Sprinkles. All are available until January 8, 2017.

Sebastian’s Frozen Cheesecakes

Sebastian’s Frozen Cheesecakes are actual cheesecakes (not ice cream) baked right into ice cream bar molds with a wooden popsicle stick and then frozen. Sink your teeth into luscious flavors like (above, from left) Dulce de Leche, Blueberry, and Ube Queso de Bola (baked ube cheesecake topped with oven-toasted queso de bola crisp).

There’s also the Chocolate Truffle (dusted in cocoa) and the Apple Pie (baked cheesecake topped with apple compote and baked spiced apples). Get these all throughout December at Sebastian’s in Mall of Asia, Podium, and Regis Center Katipunan.

Mrs. Graham’s Christmas macarons

Don’t confuse macaron with macaroon. The former is a delicate meringue-based confection while the latter is a coconut dessert. Mrs. Graham’s Macaron Café has given this French pastry a little twist by adding Christmas flavors like Eggnog, Queso de Bola, Peppermint Mocha (above), and Gingerbread. Good to give as gifts, too.
