Creative Christmas Desserts

Christmas is now only three weekends away – eeeek! So we’re sure you’ve begun to plan the menu (or the feast). We certainly have. So we thought we’d do some leg work for you and find 10 fun and totally delicious dessert ideas.

Chocolate covered strawberry Christmas TreeChocolate covered strawberry Christmas Tree

Yeeeeeesssss! Something that’s bright, fun, tasty, healthy, and covered in chocolate. Plus, it’s a great craft idea to do with the family. Once you’ve made the tree base with your poster board, freezing paper, glue, and twine, you just need to melt chocolate and stick the strawberries. Thanks Home Stories for this fantastic idea.





Baileys chocolate mousseBaileys Chocolate Mousse

Now this one is definitely adults only. Our very own decadent mix of our two favourite Christmas delights – chocolate and Baileys. These take about 30 mins to make so can be done nice and quickly. Maximum impact, minimum effort – we like! Thanks Lemon Tree Dwelling.





Nutella Christmas Tree PastryChristmas Tree Nutella Pie

I think we may have just found the easiest dessert ever. All you need is some puff pastry, Nutella, almonds, icing sugar, an egg, and an oven. Then you have a treat the whole family will love. Thanks Tastemade.





Caramel coated pearsCaramel dipped pears

These are a great fix if you have any gluten free requirements in your party. Again, super easy to make and they look fantastic. So fantastic that the website where we found them has them as a gift idea. Thanks Just between friends.

It’s our seasonal favourite with a Christmas twist. A berry pavlova in the shape of a wreath. It will look impressive on your table and is sure to cause a stir amongst your guest. Thanks Fancy Edibles.

This traditional Christmas dessert is delicious. Layers of fresh strawberry, raspberry jelly, creamy mascarpone custard, and sherry (or no sherry) soaked sponge. Mmmmmm thanks Food to Love.





Ice Cream Christmas cakeThe night-before frozen Christmas ice-cream cake

Another one from Food to Love. This is great for those really hot Christmas Days. Plus, it’s quick to make which is what we love to hear.






Sticky date puddingSticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce

Now, if you’re after something a bit heavier then look no further than this scrumptious recipe. Served with a big dollop of cream or ice-cream, it’s one of our favourites. Thanks The Whoot for this awesome Christmas Dessert idea.






Donna Hay, frozen Christmas cakeFrozen Christmas pudding – Donna Hay

Donna Hay, you’ve done it again. A traditional Christmas dessert, made for our warmer weather. It’s got vanilla ice-cream, brandy, pistachios, currants, berries and sugar. What’s not to love?





Chocolate melt dessertNigella’s chocolate pudding for Christmas pudding haters with hot chocolate sauce

You can always rely on Nigella to bring something sensational to your table and this dessert is no exception. If you don’t like a traditional Christmas pudding but want a warm dessert, this is the one for you. Plus, this is a friendly alternative for the whole family, kids and adults are bound to love it – unless they don’t like chocolate of course.
