If there’s one thing to look forward to about the Hari Raya celebration, it is definitely the cookies and desserts that will be served on the silver platter. I mean, after spending one month fasting on the holy month we are sure to find ourselves shedding a few pounds. So what’s better than refuel our sweet temptations? Good cookies and desserts!
Though most kuih raya and kuih dessert boxes are often associated within the first week of the Eid, there are indeed local brands that offer Ramadan boxes for you to munch after iftar. Or maybe during sahur, I don’t know, you choose. Since we’re here at Glitz are all about supporting locals and small businesses, we decided to hunt down some of the best dessert boxes you can order that are perfect to share with your loved ones during these festive months. Or perhaps you’re looking for something to gift your family and friends?
They look good, and taste even better!
