Easy Christmas Dessert Recipes
Do you want to fill your holiday party with plenty of festive baked goods? Even though you want to cerate a buffet of red and green goodies, you might not have the time (or the baking skill) to whip up the Christmas treats from scratch. Don’t worry. Check out these easy options that you can create with almost no effort. And the best part is—the kids can help too!
Santa’s Hat Cupcakes
Bake a batch of boxed vanilla cupcakes or use your favorite recipe. Top the cupcakes with a cone of red icing. If you don’t have red icing, or can’t find it, add a few drops of food coloring to vanilla frosting. Line the bottom of the icing (top of the cupcake) with small white gumdrops. Place another gumdrop on the top of the icing to complete Santa’s hat.
Start with ready-baked sugar cookies. Frost the cookies in solid colors. Use a toothpick to draw ribbons and bows onto the solid frosting with a second icing hue.
Create cute Christmas ornament-inspired cakes for the holidays. Again, use your favorite recipe or a boxed cake mix. Bake a circle-shaped cake and let it cool. Frost the cake and draw on an ornament design with additional colors of icing.
