10 Easy Christmas Desserts

December 22, 2019 in bars, brownies, Chilled Desserts, chocolates, cookies - No Comments - 2 min read


My break officially started today.  I worked extra hours this past week so I wouldn’t have to bring any essay grading or lesson planning home, so today felt especially sweet knowing it truly is a break.

Today was low key, with no to-do agenda, because, hey! I have two weeks! Haha.  That mentality worked for all of this morning, and then I realized that the end of 2019 is two weeks away and I haven’t even started putting together my photo album for the year.  (Granted, I did just print all 300+ photos to Costco, so it wasn’t like I was really on the ball or anything.  Good thing Project Life makes it easy to scrapbook.  And, you  know, I do have two weeks.)

Anyway, I called my mom this morning to go over the Christmas Eve dinner menu, as I am hosting, and it got me thinking about what dessert to make.  Something super simple for sure, as I am making the main dish.  All of these desserts take under an hour to make with ingredients you most likely already have on hand.  Most of them involve chocolate, but I included a few that don’t.  If you don’t have a dessert option in mind yet, I hope you give one of these a try.  You can’t go wrong with any of them.

Merry Christmas! xoxo
