Merry Christmas friends! ❤️
It’s finally here! But just in case you’re still looking for some last minute Christmas inspiration, I’ve put together my favourite easy Christmas desserts for you.
I just love this flourless chocolate cake. It seems many people are following a gluten-free diet these days but that doesn’t have to put a dent in your baking plans.
This Flourless Chocolate Cake has a beautiful texture and just about melts-in-your-mouth, with a crisp, meringue-like crust. It’s really simple to make, with only 5 ingredients, and I promise everyone will love it!
It’s hard to believe this gorgeous Ice Cream Pudding Bombe is so easy to make. Using store bought ingredients, it comes together in a flash AND it can be made ahead of time. But the best part? It tastes amazing!
And if you’re having a summer Christmas like we are in Australia, it’s the perfect way to cool down after a warm meal.
What could be better than a creamy baked cheesecake for dessert on Christmas Day? This easy Eggnog Cheesecake is packed with flavour, thanks to a ginger cookie crust, a spiced eggnog filling and a drippy caramel made from maple syrup.
I know it sounds extra special but this cheesecake is very easy to throw together. You don’t even need to worry about making a water bath.
When a gingerbread cookie collides with a chocolate brownie, you get these! Gorgeous chocolate ginger brownies with a spiced cookie crust. Drizzled with chocolate, they’re a sweet after-dinner treat.
I love banoffee pie. If you haven’t had it before, it’s a sweet caramel or toffee pie with bananas and whipped cream. I also added a secret layer of chocolate along the cookie crust for a little chocolate surprise.
This Banoffee Pie is completely no bake, so you don’t even have to worry about turning the oven on. If you want to make it ahead of time, you can make the cookie crust and the caramel, then just before serving slice up some fresh bananas and whipped cream.
If you love gingerbread cookies, you will adore this Spiced Gingerbread Cake. Boasting festive flavours, this soft and tender cake has a creamy caramel frosting. On top are homemade choc ginger cookie crumbs, which add a little crunch.
It’s an easy one layer cake to make and will easily feed 8 people. It’s one of my all-time favourite Christmas desserts.
With a creamy chocolate filling and a crunchy Oreo crust, this no-bake Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake is heaven. Topped with fresh raspberries, it looks absolutely beautiful and will definitely wow a crowd.
What’s even better, is you can make it in advance. This no bake cheesecake doesn’t have any gelatine so it’s a cinch to make!
I seriously love this pie. With a creamy peanut butter filling and a crunchy chocolate top, it’s the best of both worlds. It’s completely no bake and really easy to make – perfect if you’ve already got a thousands things to go into the oven.
If anyone in your family is a peanut butter enthusiast, this Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch Pie will be the way to their heart.
Here in Australia, pavlovas are synonymous with Christmas. So I went and made a chocolate version of this popular dessert, my mini Snickers Chocolate Meringues. Crisp, crunchy meringues topped with clouds of whipped cream and chopped Snickers.
These individual desserts are perfect for Christmas and the meringues can be made one day in advance.
For a fun Christmas dessert, why not try this Chocolate Brownie Pizza? You can customise it with any of your favourite candy or chocolate. The brownie base is really easy to make – all you need is a bowl and spoon.
You could also make the base in advance and just pop on the ganache and chocolate at the last minute.
Nothing says Christmas like rocky road. And these Rocky Road Chocolate Cupcakes are the prettiest Christmas dessert.
Soft chocolate cake topped with pink marshmallow frosting and a piece of homemade rocky road – perfect!
If any of your Christmas guests this year are following a dairy-free diet, you can add this Dairy Free Chocolate Cake to your Christmas menu. It’s actually one of my favourite chocolate cakes of all time, because of its deliciously fudgy texture.
And that olive oil ganache is to-die-for!
Whatever the dessert, I hope you and your family have a very happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year! Talk soon x
