Profiteroles

Now, if you're looking for something a little richer, go for a plate of profiteroles. What are profiteroles, you ask? Well, not only are they great seasonal pastries to serve during the holiday season, you can say that it's the richer and heavier version of an éclair. Or of a cream puff too, for that matter! The flaky pastry, filled with custard cream—or, at times, ice cream—drizzled with chocolate ganache, is the perfect complement to the lighter bubbly beverage. Some wine-loving Parisians might even pair this stomach-stuffing dessert with red wine too! But it's the holidays, so champagne is the only appropriate choice!

Mousse au Chocolat

This soft creamy dessert is just what the doctor ordered for those who want to maintain their svelte figures but still like to enjoy some sweets during the holidays. With its creamy texture often lighter than air, it's the chocolate flavor that gives it some much-need richness.

Now, pair that with a bubbling glass of champagne and you've got yourself a winner for Christmas. The combo might even tickle your taste buds a little, quite the sweet sensation indeed!
