End a beautiful Christmas meal with a stunning dessert. These 8 Sweet Amarula Cream Liqueur Desserts are sure to impress (and taste divine at the same time)
This post is sponsored by Amarula Cream Liqueur.
It's really not Christmas without one beautiful, decadent dessert. The kind that stops the show after Christmas dinner. And we've teamed up with Amarula Cream Liqueur and FBC Members across the country to bring you not one, but eight spectacularly luxurious desserts.
With its beautiful, light caramel colour and its creamy texture, Amarula Cream Liqueur easily inspired these bakers to make the most of its hints of vanilla, caramel and the exotic flavour of the natural Marula fruit in their Amarula recipes.
If you're not familiar with Amarula Cream Liqueur, you're in for a treat. It's the only cream liqueur that uses real Marula fruit, which is harvested from wild, uncultivated Marula trees that only grow in subequatorial regions of Africa.
The trees only bear fruit once a year and the smell is a beacon to elephants in the area that it's time to come on down and have a Marula feast! (that's why the shape of an African elephant's tusks are sculpted into the bottle!). Amarula is very involved with elephant conservation in Africa through education and the Amarula Trust and Wild Life Direct.
If you want to make one of these luscious Christmas desserts for your holiday table or simply enjoy some Amarula to sip on you can find it in the following locations:
- In BC Amarula is available at BC Liquor Stores

- Elsewhere in Canada Amarula is available at your local liquor retailer
