1. Bombolene
There's no resisting when it comes to this pillowy Italian treat that is bomboloni! Instead of having the classic hole in the middle, this super fluffy doughnut is filled with a delicious Italian pastry cream that’s just pure heaven. One bite is all it takes for you to fall in love and leave you on cloud nine.

2. Tiramisu
Similar to an English trifle, tiramisu is a classic dessert that comprises layers - coffee-soaked sponge biscuits (known as savoiardi or ladyfingers) topped with a mixture made of eggs, mascarpone and sugar. Traditionally, this decadent dessert uses raw eggs, contains alcohol (via the liqueur that's used in the coffee mixture to soak the ladyfingers), or it requires cooking the eggs into a custard mixture which can be a bit of a hassle. But we have an awesomely easy and halal tiramisu recipe that will be a cinch to whip up!
3. Biscotti
Have you ever had a traditional Italian biscotti before? Light, crunchy and perfect for dunking in your favourite cup coffee, these twice-baked cookies are not only delightful to eat but they’re simple to make too! With no need for any special cooking equipment or fancy baking technique, get ready to bring some Italian flavours to your kitchen with this easy halal biscotti recipe that’ll have you saying delisiozo!
4. Affogato
Enjoyed by many Italians, affogato is one of the simplest desserts you can whip up. The recipe is simple: ice cream and espresso - that's it! All you need to do is place two scoops of ice cream in a serving bowl and pour two shots of hot espresso over it. Alternatively, you can also use strong brewed coffee but whichever you choose, you'll be guaranteed a yummy dessert that'll keep you coming back for more.
5. Cannoli
Originating from the island of Sicily, all it takes to fall in love with cannolis is one bite of their deep-fried pastry shell filled with lusciously rich and creamy ricotta cheese filling. Perfect for a special occasion, weekend treat or after meal dessert, having these on the table will please any crowd. So make sure you have a go at making them using this easy recipe by Baker By Nature to impress family and friends at the next gathering. #HHWTTip: Swap out vanilla extract with vanilla essence to make the recipe alcohol-free! Whipping up Italian desserts is not all that difficult and with this list, you're all set to transport yourself to the heart of Italy from your very own kitchen ?
