If there’s one thing aside from the gifts that you can’t forget to bring to any Christmas Eve or Christmas Day celebration, it’s the dessert – people love baked goods, and you can bet that they’ll be looking for a variety to choose from on the dessert table! But since most people bring the same desserts every year – a classic cake, some brownies, and some chocolate chip cookies – we want to help you spice some things up this Christmas; here are a few desserts we recommend:
Christmas Cake Pops
As we just mentioned, people expect to see cakes and cupcakes on the dessert table, so we think you should surprise them with some cake pops instead! These are becoming increasingly popular in the dessert world, and they’re super kid-friendly too, leaving you with less mess to clean! In addition to Christmas themed cake pops (or these santa dipped oreos…they’re delicious!), we also recommend some winter themed cake pops too, such as these snowman pops.
Speaking of “cake pops,” if cheesecake is a fan favorite at your Christmas celebration, then you can’t go wrong with trying cheesecake pops either! They’re perfectly portioned which helps guests keep the amount of sweets they eat in check, and they’re super easy to eat, again resulting in less mess! And the best part is, each piece of cheesecake is covered in Belgian chocolate, which adds a completely unique flavor to this dessert.
We bet you’ve indulged in s’mores before, but have you ever had s’mores dip? You don’t have to sit outside by the fire to enjoy this treat, so it’s perfect for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day celebrations when it’s likely going to be nippy outside! It’s simple: all you need is some marshmallows, some chocolate chips and some graham crackers. To make the dip, start by spreading out chocolate chips in a pan and then layer some marshmallows on top. Then, stick it in the oven and let it cook until the marshmallows start to get golden brown on top – once it’s done, dip your graham crackers in and enjoy!
Chocolate Dipped Donuts
If you love chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate covered pretzels, you must try chocolate dipped donuts – our mouths are watering just thinking about them! Covered in dark and/or white Belgian chocolate and topped with some of the sweetest toppings, these donuts are like nothing you’ll have ever tasted before, and we bet everyone at your Christmas party will agree!
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Speaking of chocolate covered strawberries, here is an assortment that we think you’ll love. Covered in milk chocolate and white chocolate with even more chocolate drizzled on top, we’re pretty confident that your guests will be diving for these the second you open the box. And even though they are covered in chocolate, having strawberries on the dessert table offers guests an opportunity to be a little healthier than if all they had were cakes and cookies to choose from!
Okay…now we’re hungry! But before we go, we want to leave you with one last idea – a fruit bouquet! If you’re struggling to find something that everyone will like, you can’t go wrong with this one – who doesn’t like fruit? One thing’s for sure, a fruit bouquet will make your Christmas party even sweeter, and since they are so shareable, there’s bound to be something in there for everyone to munch on!
