Christmas desserts are some of the best desserts to make. You can get into the Christmas spirit and create some wonderful treats. I’ve got some delectable desserts here today that will delight your holiday guests and impress anyone on your treats list.
I have included all sorts of treats in this list, cookies, cakes, cupcakes, and more. While we all know the popularity of a cookie exchange why not mix things up this year and include other treats. Try a Christmas inspired truffle or bark and add them to the exchange.
While for some the holiday season can make you feel stressed, we all know that stressed spelled backwards is desserts. Sweets can actually release happy hormones in your brain. I say it’s time to enjoy some sweet stuff to relax and be happy.
It’s time to get into the holiday spirit and start looking at some delicious Christmas desserts. Be sure to check out my tips at the bottom of this post for planning your Christmas desserts menu.

When planning out your menu for desserts you want to keep a few things in mind. Think of the time you have available to devote. Is the rest of the dinner extremely involved? If it is you will want to pick desserts that can be made a day or two before.

Cookies, candy, and fudge will hold just fine for a day or two. I recommend making cakes, pies, and cheesecakes the day before your event. This way they still have that wonderfully fresh taste to them.
When choosing make sure you have an array of flavors. You don’t want to offer just one item. Do a chocolate, a cheesecake, and a fruity dessert. Offer cookies, cake, and candy. This means everyone will get a little something for their tastes.
