10. Merry Meringues

Merry Meringue is a light and sweet dessert that will appeal to children. This would be the perfect dessert for a birthday party or other celebration. With just four ingredients, these yummy treats are easy to whip up. A simple meringue dessert that is sweet, light, and perfect for the holiday season. They are great for a dinner party or a family get-together. You also can be creative with different colors and flavors that will surprise your family.

I baked these last Christmas. I will admit they were a bit daunting because of the shape and the fact that their consistency is totally different from your usual baked goods, but they are surprisingly not difficult to make.

9. Cinnamon Churros

Cinnamon churros are a dessert that has been on the rise in recent years. The churros are fried pieces of dough coated with cinnamon sugar and served with a natural cinnamon-vanilla dipping sauce. They have been described as being thick, chewy, and fluffy with a crispy outside and a hint of sweetness.

The final trend of the year is desert desserts that are less sweet. The cinnamon churros are a perfect example of this trend. They are spiced with cinnamon which makes them taste less sugary. This means they can be eaten more often! The cinnamon churros are not entirely new, they have been around for years and it has even made it into trendy food lists. These long, deep-fried sticks of cinnamon-sugar-dusted pastry are found across the U.S. These aren’t the same as traditional churros because they are not fried in chili oil. Instead, these are fried in high-fructose corn syrup.

8. Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies

Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies are a decadent treat that you’ll love to make and eat. The brownies are made with Nutella, which is a hazelnut chocolate spread. This delicious combination results in a moist and chewy brownie that’s topped with a fudgy Nutella frosting. These brownies can also be made with fresh hazelnuts, as well as rich dark chocolate. It's a favorite recipe of mine that has been passed on for generations.

The hazelnut flavor adds a unique twist to the traditional brownie, which we all know is already one of the best desserts on the planet. If you love sweets, you’ll definitely love these chocolate hazelnut brownies!

If you’ve ever had a brownie, then you’re familiar with the chocolate hazelnut combination. These brownies are creamy and decadent, but they have a hint of orange zest and a dark chocolate orange drizzle on top that really elevates the flavor.

7. Ruby Red Grapefruit Tartlets

These tartlets are the perfect balance of sweet and sour. It’s important to use Ruby Red grapefruits so that they add a subtle sweetness to the crust, but not too much. The filling is a mix of fresh grapefruit segments, sugar, cornstarch, egg yolks, and heavy cream. This Tarte is a variation of the classic French Tarte fine. It takes the concept of a traditional Tarte fine and gives it a modern twist, with a red grapefruit curd filling and an airy, meringue crust. The tartlets are crispy on the outside yet soft and creamy on the inside.

I recommend using store-bought pie dough if you’re pressed for time. It can be very time-consuming to make your own. Plus it makes it easier to form the tart shells and keeps them flaky.

6. Walnut Crescent Cookies

Walnut Crescent Cookies are simple, delicious cookie that makes a perfect treat for Christmas. You can also use them to make your own holiday gift baskets and stockings. They are great for snacks, dessert, or as part of a meal.

You also can use a modified version, which uses three main ingredients in the cookie itself: walnuts, dates, and maple syrup. You can also add whatever spices sound good to you. I added cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, and cloves to my batch. This recipe is for Walnut Crescent Cookies, and it’s great for people who are gluten-intolerant or have a nut allergy.

5. Blueberry-Cardamom Donut Holes

I’ve never been a big fan of donuts. What I am a fan of, is donut holes. I love all things bite-sized, and I especially love the shape and density of donut holes. I recently discovered an awesome new way to make donut holes at home, and now I can’t stop making them. They’re light and fluffy, have just a hint of sweetness, and are impossibly easy to make. They’re also the perfect size for portion control. In fact, it was hard to stop at just one!

New Year’s Day is a time for celebrating and indulging. And nothing says “celebration” more than a platter of fluffy, sweet-tart bites with champagne for the perfect treat to ring in the new year. While not everyone can make it out to watch fireworks on New Year’s Eve (or they may be hosting their own party) these sweet treats are sure to please guests at any party this New Year’s Day.

4. Lemon Thyme Cookies

Lemon Thyme Cookies are a perfect cookie recipe. They are crispy on the outside, soft in the middle, and bursting with delicious lemon flavor. The thyme in the recipe gives the cookies a herbal flair, which is a great twist on the traditional lemon cookie. These cookies are a great addition to any spring or summertime event.

What you'll need: 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1 large lemon, zested and juiced, 6 sprigs of fresh thyme, and 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar (or coarse sugar), for sprinkling. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9-inch round cake pan with parchment paper on the bottom and up to the two sides. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and granulated

3. Chocolate Pistachio Slice

This recipe is a delicious twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie. The pistachio, along with the coconut, adds a unique flavor that will have you coming back for more. Bake cookies on Sunday, and then freeze them for the week. It's one of my favorite little tricks for making sure I always have something delicious in the house.

This easy no-bake treat features your favorite holiday cookie combo, plus a vegan twist. You'll love that they're so easy to make, too. All you need is 2 ingredients: pistachio butter and vegan chocolate chips. After chilling in the fridge for a few hours, these lovely little cookies are ready to be enjoyed.

2. Aztec Chocolate Granola Bark

This Aztec Chocolate Granola Bark is a healthy combination of salty, sweet, and crunchy, a perfect snack to curb your chocolate cravings without ruining your diet. While it’s a bit harder to do that these days, you can make your own chocolate bark and get the same effect!

Some of the ingredients I love to use include: 1 package of chocolate bark (or candy bars), 3/4 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts), 3/4 cup raisins, and 1/2 cup shredded coconut. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well with a spatula or spoon. Spread evenly over the chocolate bark. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes, then break into pieces.

1. Air Fryer Donuts

When you're on a diet, donuts are out of the question. You know that, right? I found a way around it: Air fryer donuts! They're a lot less greasy than deep-fried donuts, and they taste just as good (if not better).

Donuts are beloved by many, but the problem is that they are deep-fried. That means that they are fattening, greasy and unhealthy.

Air fryers have become increasingly popular as an alternative to deep-fried food items. Air fryers use hot air to fry food which means that it’s not greasy and no oil is used. They are also becoming increasingly affordable. This makes them a viable option for people who want to stop eating greasy donuts but don’t want to give them up entirely.

Thank you for reading and Happy 2022 , GOD bless.
