Introduction: Mexidos, Portuguese Christmas Dessert

About: Hey! I'm Mon from Portugal and I love food! Especially desserts! I have a youtube channel full of delicious videos! I'm no professional but I sure do enjoy experimenting new things and share those with everyo…

This Recipe it's a tradicional dessert from the north of Portugal, from Viana do Castelo.

Since I can remember, my mum always makes this on Christmas day so I decided to share it with you. The only down to this is that you need Porto wine (a typical wine from Portugal) but I'm sure you can find it in most of the supermarkets and it's really worth it, trust me!!!

If you do make this recipe please send me a picture or tag me on Instagram #monamiedesserts because I would love to see.
