Every country has its favored holiday desserts, and here in America we like to try desserts from everyone else. I gathered 65+ best holiday desserts from around the world that you will love. These are all in one place so you don’t even have to leave your couch. From cookies, cakes, brownies and truffles I have you covered. All of these wonderful recipes come from the best bloggers around, and they know how to bake. I’d love to know which is your favorite so please leave a comment before you step away!
If you’re tired of the same old American desserts and are looking for something different I love these Elderflower Wand Biscuits. They are not only pretty but have a unique flavor that we don’t bake with very often in the states.
Looking for something to go with a Lego themed birthday party? These Lego Brownies look really cool, plus you will get bonus points for being the cool mom who bakes more than chocolate chip cookies. Have a birthday part coming up for your little guy? Swap out the cake for these lego brownies, and have less to clean up.
These Wow Butter Cookies look super yummy. These traditional peanut butter blossom cookies are a long time favorite in virtually every state in the US. This version uses an alternative peanut butter called soy butter, and I hear you cannot tell!
Although this is an epic game day party treat you don’t have to wait for a big football game to indulge, and trust me, these Snicker’s Cookie Bars are worth the effort.
Looking for a gluten free & peanut free cookie? These Monster Cookies will do you right. Not a fan of peanut butter? Oh my goodness these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies look like they’d be a favorite in my family. Are you more of a brownie person? You cannot go wrong with brownies, and I have a few recipes for you S’mores Brownies and another Brownie S’mores a Good for You Triple Chocolate Brownies recipe and Snickers Brownies and when you pair cheesecake with brownie you get heavenly concoction called Cheesecake Brownies
Wanting something a little bit smaller? Mini bites are great for parties, after school snacks, and portion control. These two mini brownie bite recipes look easy to make but aren’t boring. I like that these recipes have a twist to them, and are a little bit unconventional.
Look at these Rolo Brownie Bites ! If you are a Rolo fan these are great, and even if you’re not you may like this recipe anyway. Then there’s mint. Can’t go wrong with mint. I love mint in pretty much anything, don’t you? If you love mint check out these Chocolate Mint Brownies and also a Layered Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies to stretch the bar a little further.
In case you needed more brownie ideas here’s 6 more that are American favorites. Homemade Brownie Heartstacks would make a good addition for your valentine kids party, and these Symphony Brownies look very tasty, but Another S’mores Brownie has my eye. If you’re into gooey then these Gooey Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies will do it for you but if you love oatmeal then these Best Oatmeal Fudge Brownies look good but don’t confuse them for breakfast food or do, I’m not judging 😉
Cookies! Cookies! Cookies! The best holiday desserts are always cookies but these are a Tradition around here Snickerdoodles is one of my favorite cookies. My grandmother used to make them all the time when I was little. There’s a few different ways to make Snickerdoodles but I like how this blogger does hers.
While I am not a big fan of peanut butter, apparently readers are because there are quite a few recipes out there, like this Peanut Butter Blossom Cookie. So while I am not a fan I know some of my readers will be.
Butterscotch & Chocolate Cookies look good, and they are another longtime favorite of mine but if you are looking for something that melts in your mouth then maybe these Meltaway Sprinkle Cookies would be a good choice. I am not a gingerbread lover but if you are then try these Colonial Williamsburg Gingerbread Cookies . A couple more peanut lover recipes Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies and Chocolate Chip Peanut Pretzel Cookies and No Bake Peanut Butter Pie or Reese Peanut Butter Cookies all of which do look heavily.
