8 Super Adorable Dessert Ideas That Will Be A Hit At Any Christmas Party

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at PSU chapter.

Christmas season is here, which means it’s time to put your apron on and make delicious holiday-themed desserts. It’s the best time for baking because you can make some cute and original treats that all your family and friends will enjoy. Here are eight examples of easy treats that will make everyone jolly during the most wonderful time of the year:


1. Reindeer Cupcakes

Rudolph and his friends will be the life of the party with these adorable cupcakes!


2. Christmas Tree Cookie Stacks

This definitely beats decorating a real Christmas tree.


3. Raspberry Cheese Candy Cane Danish

Danishes are pretty rare Christmas treats, so when I came across this recipe, I was really intrigued. This looks absolutely delicious, and might even be great as a breakfast dish.


4. Strawberry Santas

These juicy and adorable mini Santas will offer your guests a semi-healthy treat, and they’re super easy to make, too!


5. Snowman Donuts

When it’s Christmas but you’re not entirely over Halloween… this snowman donut recipe uses candy corn as the snowman’s nose.


6. Grinch Fruit Kabobs

Hopefully, these don’t taste like a “nasty wasty skunk” or a “bad banana with a greasy black peel!”


7. Christmas Tree Brownies

Here’s another Christmas tree dessert because you can never have too many!


8. Present-Shaped Rice Krispie Treats

Everyone loves Rice Krispie Treats and everyone loves getting presents, so put them together and you’ll have the perfect dessert!  


Happy holiday baking, collegiettes!  

I am a senior majoring in Digital and Print Journalism at Penn State University, so I absolutely love to write. I am originally from Easton, Pennsylvania (no I did not grow up in the Crayola Factory). I love to sing, and I am a huge Kelly Clarkson fan! I literally have every single Kelly Clarkson lyric in the history of ever memorized. On a normal day, you'll most likely find me cuddling with my dogs and watching Disney movies.
