Snow Angel Cupcakes

Cupcakes are inherently cute, but they become even more adorable when they’re made miniature. Presented as if they’ve just been dusted with snow, these elegant and whimsical cupcakes are sure to disappear in seconds. Freshly grated lemon zest brightens up a traditional batter, and a swirl of sweetened whipped cream makes them party-ready. A garnish of a single fresh raspberry and a snowy sprinkle of powdered sugar adds that final festive touch. Their light and fluffy texture (and individual size) ensures you won’t end Christmas feeling overly stuffed—that is, as long as you can eat just one. Consider yourself warned.

Mini Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint cookies are a classic holiday treat, and they’re fun to make with kids of all ages.

If you prefer a firmer, more shortbread-like cookie, bake for a minute or two longer. Once cooled, homemade chocolate frosting is poured into the well, and colorful sprinkles are added for a festive finish. When the frosting has set, serve the cookies or store in tins as needed, though we bet these won’t stick around for long.

Gingerbread Oreo No Bake Mini Cheesecakes

Gingerbread flavor shines in three ways in these creamy, airy cheesecakes: in the Gingerbread Oreo crust, in the gingerbread pudding cream cheese filling, and in the miniature gingerbread man sitting on top (he’s actually an edible cake decoration—clever!). A spoonful of pumpkin pie spice further amps up the flavor.

The best part? Because these cheesecakes are no-bake, they won’t take up oven space, and you can ease day-of stress by making them in advance and storing in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.

Mini Cranberry Apple Crisps

Take a break from the cookie tray and serve these comforting individually-portioned crisps, which are filled with tender, spiced apples and tangy fresh cranberries. The brown sugar-oat topping with cinnamon and nutmeg is so warm and delicious, we suggest making extra for sprinkling over the (non-optional) vanilla ice cream. If not, an extra dusting of cinnamon is a good idea, too. Bake in small ovenproof ramekins until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden brown, then let cool slightly before serving.

This lightened-up version is designed with ease in mind, and each miniature cake is studded with chopped apricots and cherries and filled with spices—ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Freshly squeezed orange juice and zest add a citrusy brightness. They’re topped off with a vegan-friendly icing made from cashews, coconut oil, and vanilla, along with a fresh cherry for garnish (though you can skip this or substitute another fruit). They’re great for breakfast on Christmas morning, too.

Mini Cinnamon Wreaths

These edible wreaths prove good things definitely come in small packages. Not only is there cinnamon-sugar swirled inside, but each wreath is topped with brown sugar and walnuts.

They’re perfect for setting out with after-dinner coffee, or for serving with steaming mugs of peppermint hot cocoa. For a snowy effect, dust the roofs with edible glitter.

Amidst large pies and other traditional desserts, these will stand out on any holiday table.

Peppermint Bark Petit Fours

Traditional petit fours call for a layer of jam or buttercream in the middle, but this recipe uses peppermint bark for a unique holiday twist.

Once you’ve assembled your layers of cake, peppermint chocolate, and marzipan, pour vanilla icing over the mini cakes and sprinkle on your desired decorations while the icing is still wet: nonpareils, dragées, and mini sugar snowflakes are all pretty options. Or wait for the icing to dry and then pipe on designs with colored frosting. Each one-bite cake is like a sweet little Christmas present—completely irresistible.

Candy Bar Pretzel Bites

Sweet and salty. Chocolate and pretzels. You can’t go wrong with these winning combinations, and these little bites don’t disappoint. We’re not quite sure if they count as cookies or confections, but either way, they’re delicious. Slightly melted mini chocolate candy bars (think Snickers and Milky Ways—use your favorites) are sandwiched between square pretzels, then allowed to harden.

Once they’re set, you’re ready to indulge. Crunchy, chewy, chocolatey, and savory all at once, they just might be the perfect bite.

Chocolate Mousse and Brownie Trifles

An English-style layered trifle is a classic way to top off Christmas dinner. It’s often served in a large glass serving bowl, with individual portions spooned out at the table. Taking a cue from the original, these mini trifles are assembled in clear shot glasses so you can see each luscious layer. Instead of traditional cake, fruit, and custard, this version stars rich brownies and an airy chocolate pudding lightened with whipped cream. For a prettier presentation, pipe the pudding into the glasses using a pastry bag (a resealable plastic bag with a corner snipped off will do in a pinch).
