Christmas Dessert Ideas

As you are probably aware by now I have a HUGE sweet tooth.  I love desserts and I always struggle which one to choose when I am out for dinner or at a party.

I certainly do my fair share of indulging over Christmas so today I thought I would treat us to some Christmas dessert ideas.

Christmas Dessert Ideas

Would you like some Christmas dessert ideas that include Christmas candy canes?  I don’t know what it is about these red and white stripped canes, but they have a way of making any dessert look super festive!  These white chocolate peppermint cheesecakes by Korean American Mommy look incredibly tempting and I’m sure the peppermint would be an awesome palette cleanser.  There is a printable recipe, so pop on over and try them out!

These peppermint orea vanilla dipped lollipops by CandiQuik look absolutely delicious.  You would be forgiven for thinking you have stepped into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory….that is what they remind me of!  They look incredibly and once again the peppermint in them would be very refreshing for a dessert idea after a big meal.

Does this following dessert idea by The Shine Project  look like ice cream to you?  It did to me when I first looked at it, but surprisingly they are sugar cookie pin wheels.  Of course any Christmas dessert ideas had to include cookies, and these look absolutely fantastic.  They look like they would melt in the mouth, which makes them perfect for a Christmas dessert!

Any list of Christmas dessert ideas has to include snowballs at some point… here it is!  These rice krispie snowball treats by Add A Pinch are small, easy to make and look fantastic balanced on the side of a mug!  Team these with a nice hot cup of cocoa and I think you would be onto a winner!

As you know I am a self obsessed chocoholic, so I couldn’t include a list of Christmas dessert ideas without including at least one chocolate treat.  This easy chocolate cake by A Beach Cottage fits the bill nicely.  This dessert looks a million bucks, but won’t have you slaving in the kitchen for hours.  I’m thinking this dessert would be quickly polished off after a Christmas meal.
