Moroccan desserts are different from what we might consider a typical dessert outside Morocco. Traditional Moroccan desserts are not generally served after meals and are instead eaten in the mid-afternoon as a part of a tea time. That doesn’t mean you can’t eat them whenever you like!
There are several easy Moroccan desserts and there are many more that are complex and time consuming.
