Conclude your Christmas lunch or festive party with something delightfully sweet to add to the jolly occasion.

But if the thought of jelly, sponge cake and custard doesn't tickle your taste buds - then why not opt for something a little different and treat your guests to a dessert in a cup or a no-bake caramel walnut chocolate tart that will instantly bring smiles to the table.
