There are many different types of kids' Christmas desserts that are festive and fun, and some that kids can even help to make. Some of the most popular types of kids' Christmas desserts are cakes, cookies, and pies. There are also different pudding options, or those made with gelatin, which is fun and easy as well. There are abundant recipes to be found by searching online, many with fun customization options; for instance, making and decorating cookies to look like snowmen or candy canes, or making cupcakes to look like reindeer. There are virtually limitless options for those with a little time to put in.
Some of the best kids' Christmas desserts are those that kids can actually help make. Sugar cookies, for instance, are typically a pretty easy recipe when a parent can help, and can then be cut into fun shapes using cookie cutters. Gingerbread cookies are also crowd pleasers, though these are a bit more challenging to make initially. After they are baked, they are equally fun to decorate with sprinkles or frosting. Even if it is more difficult for kids to participate in making certain recipes, such as cakes or cupcakes, they are still fun to decorate together using festive ingredients.
Cakes, cupcakes, and pies are some of the most popular kids' Christmas desserts, whether the kids participate in the baking or not. They can be made in many different flavors, and are enjoyed by kids -- and adults -- of all ages. For a particularly festive dessert, cakes can be made into certain shapes, some with relative ease. For instance, a snowman cake can be made by using three different circular cake pans of graduated sizes, and then simply decorated with white frosting and candies. A candy cane cake is similarly easy to make, and just requires some cutting of a sheet cake. Kids will love these festive designs.
Other desserts such as different types of pudding or gelatin treats can be good kids' Christmas desserts as well. Pudding is simple to make and enjoyed by even picky kids, as are different types of flavored gelatin. Gelatin treats can even be made into fun shapes using cookie cutters, which kids tend to enjoy as well. With a little effort and creativity, however, there is no limit to the amount of fun Christmas desserts that can be prepared and served at holiday parties for people of all ages.
