These Easy Christmas Desserts with Fun Hacks make it simple to have dessert for the Holidays without spending all day in the kitchen making complicated recipes.
I don’t really bake much and so when it comes to Holiday entertaining, I’ve found the simplest things ever work best for me, and I love fun hacks! I know I can’t be the only one that feels this way, especially when your house is full of guests, and the kids are out of school on break. It can get a little crazy and I’d rather spend time visiting than slaving over cookies. I know you’re going to love these recipes!
Candy Cane Striped Cake – a cake mix becomes beautiful with whipped topping and, yes, crushed candy canes applied in stripes. Instructions are in the post. You use strips of paper on the cake and then quickly dust with crushed candy canes!
Chocolate Lava Cakes – The mayo in the batter makes it extra moist!
Easiest Apple Cobbler – it uses crescent rolls cut up for the topping!
Chocolate Raspberry Cream Pies – chocolate chips and raspberries in ramekins, topped with store-bought pastry dough!
Peanut Butter Crunch Balls – no baking required, these have just 4 ingredients.
No Bake Cheesecake Cups – cream cheese mixed with sweetened condensed milk makes these taste like cheesecake, no baking required!
Fudge Recipe – mini marshmallows hold this together, kind of like rice crispy squares!
Butter Tarts – 6 simple ingredients turn into a caramel-type sauce as they bake in the pastry shells!
Easiest Chocolate Pots de Creme – creamy chocolate cups made with yogurt instead of cream for tang and health, and because I have yogurt in my fridge more often than I have cream!
