The holidays are my favorite time of the year. Mainly because I use it as my excuse to eat an abundant amount of desserts and feel completely ok with wearing sweat pants since my jeans won't fit. As you have heard me mention a few times before, I can't stand doing dishes so I set out to make easy Christmas desserts. Easy on your stress levels, easy on your dish load, maybe not so easy on your waistline.
All of these Christmas dessert recipes are intended to be fun, simple and compliment each other. You can make all of them at the same time and use the same ingredients. My goal is always to reduce dishes and time, this combination of easy Christmas desserts does just that.
Easy Christmas Desserts
- Almond Butter Cups with Jam
- Chocolate Strawberry Cups
- Brownies with a Santa Hat
- Strawberry Santa Claus
We used strawberry vanilla bean jam in the almond butter cups and the flavor combination is out of this world. If you use a different flavor, please leave us a comment letting us know what to try next.
The chocolate strawberry cups are a perfect vessel for any flavors you want to deliver. You can add flavored extracts to the coconut milk whipped cream or even fill with homemade nut butters instead.
Not much more needs to be said about the Santa Hat brownies. They are just so stinking adorable and you should make them for that reason alone. Chocolate + Adorable = WINNING.
The strawberry Santa Claus was an attempt at remaking a Pinterest picture. Honestly, I was getting ready to Instagram one of those infamous “nailed it” meme's until I realized how easy and fun this one was to make. Great to do with your kids as well.
Well I know it is Christmas Eve, even though when I started writing this it was the 23rd. Whoops. These easy Christmas desserts are perfect for any last minute snacks so you don't have to attempt to deal with the unruly mobs in grocery stores. Of course, that is me hoping you have everything you need in your house. One final note, I have been asked a few times on adding Pinterest links to my images. They are already there if you scroll your mouse over the image, a button should pop up in the top left. There are also Pinterest buttons on the top and bottom of each post. Hope that helps and Merry Christmas.
- Cut off the top 1/3 of your strawberries
- Place coconut cream on all your strawberries and then place the tops you cut off back on to look like hats
- Place small chunks of your chocolate chips in each strawberry to look like eyes
- Place small dollops of coconut whipped cream on the front of each strawberry to look like the buttons on santa's jacket
- Plate and enjoy
