They all just make Christmas so festive and have the holiday spirit in every bite! Try these holiday desserts for your next holiday party or family dinner.
We love to splurge on cute Christmas desserts and making them even more decadent by adding whipped cream, ice cream, cream cheese frosting and more!

I love old classics but I also like try new recipes too. Typically, my dessert list for the holidays is a mix of old and new favorites.
