Houston won't having snow so I guess I need to look up some snowing videos on YouTube. (haha) I have rounded up the best 15 easy, fun, and super cute Christmas dessert recipe you can follow at home.
These photos are made by other bloggers and I linked the original recipe. The descriptions here are the easy way I would make it myself for these treats. Feel free to follow my way or the original one.
I can't wait to make some of these, and the purpose of this post is to share the holiday dessert ideas! So let's get right into these 15 easy & fun Christmas dessert recipes!

I haven't eaten brownies in a such a long time. These brownie Christmas trees are so visually pleasing! The easy way is to bake some brownies using brownie mix. Then, cut them into christmas tree shapes. For the frosting on top, you can use green candy melts. Use the candy cane for the tree trunk, and sprinkle some sprinkles on top, and there you have it!
These look so neat but I know when I make these, my frosting might be all over the place. Good news is you can be as creative as you want. There are so many Disney characters so if you want to make them, go ahead!
Buy this sugar cookie mix and you can use these cookie shapers to make the disney logo. Place them in the oven, and once it's done, start designing them. Below photo is the perfect example but as I said, be creative with the designs!
These reindeer rice krispie treats are super easy to make. First you will need these wooden sticks to keep your hands from being sticky. Next, you want to use skittles for the reindeer nose. Use these edible candy eyeballs for the reindeer eyes. Draw some antlers with that melted chocolate!
Now how adorable is this santa hat cupcake? This is perfect for you bakers out there. It could be chocolate cupcake or any flavored cupcake you want. Make that with this gluten-free cupcake mix. Then, all you have to do is make the red icing and swirl it just like you swirl when you get that soft-serve ice cream. Don't forget to put the marshmallows around and on top. It will stick to the red icing you just made.
I don't know about you, but I love pretzels. They make great low calorie snacks when you are craving for crackers or chips. These rose gold tiny twists pretzels are the ones I always get! So for this Christmas Pretzels, you can use the tiny twists pretzels, melt the colored candy melts, and you are ready! I like using Wilton candy melts - white, red, and green.
Same as the Disney themed cookies, you need to make the sugar cookies first, and in this case, use these cookie cutters for the wreath. Then, melt the candy melts and use the right piping tip to create the wreath look. Adding these red ribbons make it more festive and bright! Feel free to be creative on this one as well.
I don't think I can eat these polar bears... Here's how to make them. The base is oreos. For ears, use the marshmallow and squeeze them between the oreo cookie. Then, you cover the ears and oreos with white candy melt. For the mouth, you can add the round white candy melt (not melted) and stick on it. Add some m&ms for nose and black food coloring for eyes.
These look way too cute! Very easy to make. You can either buy the ginger cookies or make them at home with the ginger cookie mix. While baking the cookies, melt some white chocolate. Once the white chocolate melt is ready, dip the ginger cookie and let it sit until the white chocolate is ready to go. You then use these food coloring gel to draw Christmas decorations.
How adorable are these penguin cookies? You can use Nutter Butter crackers for the base. Cover them with melted chocolate, add some edible candy eyeballs, m&ms for nose and feet. You can use melted white chocolate for their body. How are we supposed to eat them?!
How delicious do they look? Yummm. All you have to do is bake the cookie and decorate it. So as soon as you take out the cookie from the oven, start poking these Christmas colored m&ms and chocolate chips onto the cookie, and there you have it! Pair it with some warm almond milk or even hot chocolate (if you are a chocolate person).
Buy some jumbo marshmallows. You can melt the chocolate and then put them in the zip loc bags. Cut out a small hole in the tip of the ziploc bag and start drawing the face and hands. Use these marshmallow sticks to connect their bodies! There you have it!
These are so easy to make! You just need some fresh strawberries, whip cream and black food color that will be used for the eyes. You can also replace the eyes with chocolate or candy.
Buy some popcorn. Instead of M&Ms, I would probably want to use Cap'N Crunch's Oops all berries cereal, but feel free to add any snack you want. Mix them together into a bowl, and you are ready! I am currently watching how to get away with murder on Netflix. What's your favorite TV show?
Super easy to make this peppermint candy bowl. First you make the flower shape below with 19 peppermint candy. You then bake it right enough for them to get soft, not melt all over the place. About (8-10 minutes). Prepare your small glass bowl, and once it gets soft, place the candy on top of the small glass bowl. Let it cool down and there you have it!
15. Colorful Meringue Cookies
If you haven't tried the meringue cookies, you are missing out! They are so easy to make, and delicious! They literally melt in your mouth. All you have to do is to beat the egg whites. Arms might hurt, so you can use this mixer instead of manually mixing for over 10 minutes. Once it gets foamy, add some sugar until it starts to fold. You can add some food coloring as well. Using the various piping tips, start placing them onto the cookie sheet. Bake it for 20-25 minutes and you will have your soft yet crunchy meringue cookies!
