5 Decadent Winter Desserts

Winter DessertsThe snow is falling, the fire is crackling and you’re snuggled under your quilt wondering what to make for the book club meeting. Not just any dessert will do for these girls; you need decadence and frill. From finger foods to oh-so-smashing cakes these wintertime desserts will impress your guests!

1. White Chocolate Snowdrift Cake – BHG.com

Even the name begs for another slice. A marbled cake with a cream cheese, whipping cream, and white chocolate frosting garnished with candied cranberries? Melt in your mouth snowy goodness.

2. Winter Fruit Crockpot Crisp – Steph’s Bite by Bite

Drag out your crockpot, girls, and use up that winter crop of apples and pears! I really like that this recipe doesn’t take up extra space in the oven, making it the perfect winter dessert for those evenings when you’re cooking for a crowd. Or, set it to cook while you cheer for the kids’ hockey team and come home to a good warm-you-up treat!

3. Puppy Chow Dessert Recipe – Blissfully Domestic

Finger foods are fun, no matter your age! Puppy chow isn’t just a kid’s treat, grownups like it too and it’s sure to be a huge hit at your next get together. Serve up this decadent treat in individual party cups or plop a festive bowl of them on the coffee table and serve up hot cocoa in fancy glasses.

4. Oven-Baked Beignets – Good Housekeeping

Oh, New Orleans! It was in your lovely French District that I fell in love with Beignets. Now I can make them at home in my own oven! How I look forward to delighting my guests with these sugar-dusted treats and mugs of fresh brewed hazelnut coffee.

5. Pom-Berry Mini Cupcakes – Bitter Sweet

No dessert list would be complete without a decadent cupcake and these buttercream frosted beauties are a winter treat for your taste buds. The pomegranates and cranberries paired with cinnamon and nutmeg are sure to warm you up inside.

    These are some really great ideas! Oven baked beignets and a dessert made in my favorite kitchen appliance (crockpot) is awesome.
