Christmas desserts must be very special to suit the season. This is one of the most important meals of the year. So the dessert has to be memorable! While Christmas cookies are a wonderful choice for dessert, I feel the meal should have a proper finish. A cake, pie, or icebox creation is the best choice.

You can decorate your dessert to match the season. Crush candy canes and sprinkle them over a chocolate layer cake. Pipe whipped cream in a tree shape on top of a pie, then decorate with colored sprinkles. Chocolate curls and shavings, in white and dark varieties, are the perfect finish for an icebox dessert or cheesecake. Enjoy these recipes.

Christmas Dessert Recipes

  • Angel Cheesecake Pie
    I simply love this light version of cheesecake. (But when I say "light", I don't mean "fewer calories". I just mean "fluffier".) It has the most velvety texture and divine flavor.
  • Pavlova
    This ethereal dessert is a great choice for Christmas dinner. You can top it with candied cherries, or choose strawberries or grapes. It's the ideal make-ahead dessert, so pretty, and delicious too.
  • Raspberry Walnut Torte
    This is the dessert to end all desserts. The flavor and texture are incredible. And if you serve it on a green place, you've got the Christmas colors covered!
  • Chocolate Crepes with Caramel Sauce
    Tender chocolate cakes are wrapped around a white chocolate cloud, then drizzled with caramel syrup. Nothing is better than this recipe. Nothing.
  • Chocolate Filled Angel Food Cake
    With a purchased angel food cake, this beautiful dessert takes just a few minutes to prepare. Then all you have to do is slice it!
  • Creamy Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert
    If you like chocolate and peanut butter, this is the recipe for you. Every bite melts in your mouth.
  • White Chocolate Cheesecake
    Melted white chocolate makes the filling in this cheesecake so unbelievably creamy and dense. It's beautiful, too, with the finishing touch of strawberry sauce.
  • The Best Elvis Pie
    Hey, kitschy can be great! Peanut butter, toffee, bananas, and whipped cream combine for a wonderful dessert that easily serves a crowd.
  • Cherry Dessert
    This dessert looks like Christmas! Serve it on a green plate so it looks like an ornament.
  • Chocolate Pecan Caramel Pie
    Melt chocolate chips into caramel ice cream topping to make a rich, candy-like filling, then top it with caramel whipped cream. What do you get? This fantastic dessert!
  • White Chocolate Pecan Pie
    White chocolate and whipped cream combine to form the velvety filling in this luscious pie. A secret dark chocolate layer on the bottom provides gorgeous contrast.
  • White Chocolate Mousse Cake
    This gorgeous cake starts with a mix, so it's easier to make. Finely chopped white chocolate folded into the cake batter makes it very velvety. It's filled with a mousse, then topped with a white chocolate ganache and finished with creamy buttercream.
  • Pecan Cakes
    If you want to blow people away, this is the recipe for you. I've had people beg me to make their wedding cakes after I served them this recipe. It takes some time, but boy is it worth it.
