5 Christmas Dessert Ideas The Whole Family Will Love
1. White Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecakes
Would you like some Christmas dessert ideas that include Christmas candy canes?
I don’t know what it is about red and white stripped candy 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 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, so 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!
5. Easy Chocolate Cake
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.
Turn Your Favorite Christmas Dessert Into An Easy Gift
The giving of perishable items has become increasingly popular as Christmas gifts. You only have to look in the shops to see all the gift baskets filled to the brim with cookies, cakes, chocolate, and different sauces.
It’s not hard to understand why they are popular. If you are ever stuck for a gift idea then opting for something that can be eaten is always a gift that will be appreciated.
The Oreo vanilla lollipops, sugar cookie pin wheels and rice krispie snowballs would be perfect wrapped up in a gorgeous Christmas cellophane and tied with a ribbon. I’m sure you wouldn’t have any complaints on the receiving end of the gift!
So what do you think? Are you planning on making a batch of desserts to enjoy yourself over Christmas or perhaps you love the idea of gifting them? Either way, you are not going to go wrong with enjoying these Christmas desserts.
