Santa Hat Cheesecake Bites
- 1 plain cheesecake
- Whipped cream or whipped topping
- 12 strawberries, tops removed
Dessert recipes for Christmas don’t get much easier when you combine store-bought with a little creativity. These cute Christmas desserts start by cutting bite-sized rounds out of a plain cheesecake and topping them with whipped cream and cut strawberries. When topped with another dollop of whipped cream you’ve created little Santa hats before you know it.
Caramel Gingerbread Cookie Bars
- Ground ginger
- Powdered sugar
Gingerbread is a flavor staple in dessert recipes for Christmas but this recipe skips the cookie decorating by packing gingerbread flavor into delicious bars. After baking the gingerbread dough in a 9×9 cake pan, allow to cool before cutting into bars. Top with a caramel frosting that is the perfect sweet complement to the spicy gingerbread and decorate with sprinkles of your choice.
Peppermint Icebox Pie
- Chocolate sandwich cookies
- Cream cheese
- Marshmallow cream
- Heavy Cream
- Mint extract
- Red food coloring
Christmas sweets recipes that are no-bake are even sweeter and this icebox pie is no exception. All the fresh minty flavor of the season comes from mint extract that’s added to an easy mixture of cream cheese, marshmallow cream and heavy cream. A few drops of red food coloring add Christmas color before pouring into a chocolate cookie crust and chilling. Whipped cream and chopped red and white mints make this pie holiday-ready.
Grinchy Pull-Apart Cupcakes
- 1 box chocolate cake mix
- Heavy Cream
- Red, green, & yellow food coloring
Combining cupcakes and The Grinch are a kid-friendly dessert that’s easier than it appears. Bake a box chocolate cake mix into cupcakes and arrange them in the shape of The Grinch’s face and hat. The secret to keeping the cupcakes together is adhering them with a little frosting before dying it red, green and yellow. Use piping bags and store-bought gel icing to make that iconic Grinch face come alive.
Red Velvet Holiday Trifle
- 1 box red velvet cake mix
- Heavy cream
- Mascarpone cheese
- Semisweet chocolate chips
Trifles are the perfect dessert recipes for Christmas because they’re both easy and eye-catching. After preparing your favorite red velvet cake mix, layer it in a trifle dish with a combination of whipped cream and mascarpone cheese and simple chocolate ganache. When you’re done, we think you’ll have an instant no-fuss centerpiece to your Christmas dessert table.
