5 Holiday Desserts For An Awesome Event

The holidays are upon us, and you know what that means: party, after party, after party. While it might seem hectic at times, there’s no doubt that the holiday food and drinks are totally worth the effort. It’s also fun to host your own event, and providing holiday dessert recipes that are decadent, impressive, and filled with the holiday spirit will surely make your event the one to beat.

When hosting an event, entertainment and food should be high priority, as they often make for the most memorable moments of an event and can elevate the energy among guests. Plus, with seasonal spices, holiday music, and festive décor, it’s easy to elevate the ambience and keep guests engaged. Here are five ways to take advantage of this season’s finest, by offering delectable desserts to further sweeten the mood.

Strawberry Cheesecake Santa


These mini Santa dessert bites resonate with the holiday spirit and offer a lighter dessert, which might come in handy after a plate filled with heavy meats and cheesy casseroles and a glass of eggnog. Preparing these for a movie, holiday event theme would tie in well with the theme, where you can eat your favorite characters!

Nutella Cherry Fudge


Any dessert with nutella has to be good, right? This fudge recipe is rich, creamy, and bold with bittersweet chocolate, antioxidant-rich dried cherries, and a pinch of vanilla. The addition of sea salt on top adds a hint of saltiness that balances out the intensity of the chocolate and nutella.

Carrot Cake Pops


Surprise guests with this awesome carrot cake recipe that boasts nutrition, spice, and a moist texture. The pop of cinnamon provides a spicy element, and the creaminess of the cream-cheese frosting adds density and sweetness for the ultimate, flavor combination.

Doughnut Twists


This dessert is definitely twisted, but in a good way. A holiday favorite, these crispy, fried doughnut delights are perfect for ending an event on a sweet note. Coated with sugar and dipped in a chocolate, brandy sauce, this holiday donut recipe will give you a little something extra to cheer for this season.

Eggnog No-Bake Cheesecake


Beyond it’s easy assembly (no-bake desserts are awesome), this rich and creamy holiday cheesecake uses eggnog to amp up its holiday spirit, flavor, and spice. Instead of drinking your eggnog, whip up this eggnog dessert for a new take on a holiday staple to satisfy every guest’s sweet tooth.
