The Best Christmas Dessert Recipes
Have you baked up your holiday cookies? Planned your menu for Christmas, Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve? How about dessert? Well, today I’m guest posting for my busy friend, Brianne, who just moved into a new home and is a bit overwhelmed unpacking and getting her new house set for Christmas with two little ones in tow. Being a bit crazed myself, I handpicked some recipes which are ideal for the season. Whether used to cap off a big festive meal or to share at a cookie exchange, I hope my list will inspire you.
White Chocolate Frangelico Mousse: A nice alternative to the classic chocolate mousse. A slosh of Frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur, makes it even more special occasion worthy.
Double Dose Toffee : This candy starts with my standard English toffee recipe. I usually make 3 batches to give away to my friends and neighbors. Traditionally, I top with chopped pecans, but this recipe shakes it up and uses chopped Heath bars for a double dose!
Cranberry White Chocolate and Crystallized Ginger Cookies: One of my favorite new cookies. It’s a rare case where I use both shortening and butter in a cookie, but the resulting texture is divine. Plus the hit from the crystallized ginger is extraordinary.
Julia Child’s Chocolate Mousse: An elegant no-bake recipe. Perfect when your oven is busy with a turkey or roast beast.
Christmas Sugar Cookies: These frosted, cut out cookies are perfect for any occasion and can be cut into any shape!
Easy Chocolate Mousse Tart: A terrific chocolate dessert. Cut it into slivers and be prepared to swoon with every bite of this elegant dessert.
Holiday Truffle Cookies: A festive fudgy cookie that you can shake up with any colored M & M’s you’d like.
