  1. My favorite Christmas treat is hands down, hot chocolate. Sure that can be drunk anytime during the year but nothing screams a Christmas treat to me like hot chocolate!

    Hope we win!!!! Thank you so much!

  2. Every year I make banana pudding wafer dessert for Christmas Day and I die the pudding red and the whipped cream green to give it that extra Christmas cheer. My fiancé and his family love it.

  3. I am Peruvian and in Peru we have what is called Turrón de Doña Pepa (traditionally prepared for the religious festivities), it is an Anis Cookie Bar with Candy Syrup, topped with candy sprinkles (bit like fruitcake). Well, it is delicious and it is my favorite Christmas dessert… brings back a lot of good childhood memories. I recommend you look it up and try it!

  4. There are so many favorites, in our house we love to bake Christmas cookies with our kids and allow them to decorate. We also love my friends pumpkin spice loaf and peppermint bark. Like I said, there are so many that I can name a lot more but those three are my favorite.

  5. My favorite dessert for Christmas (and at any time) is pumpkin pie with whipped cream. 🙂 Yeah, it’s simple, but no one in my family makes anything special and really, I would probably prefer pumpkin pie anyways, hah.

  6. My favorite dessert is a cookie my mom makes called Melting Moments. There are never enough of them and I wait all year long to get a few of these tiny cookies!

  7. I must say that my favorite Christmas Dessert during Christmas would be the cinnamon and brown sugar tamales. Very traditional in my family.

  8. I love peanut butter cookies with a Hershey Kiss in the middle. I never really have it except during Christmas, so they remind me of Christmas and family.

  9. My favorite Christmas dessert is Double Chocolate Peppermint Bark!
    It is so delicious!! And definitely egg nog!
    Thank you for the chance! ☺️

  10. One of my all time favorite desserts at CHRISTmas time is my Moms homemade fudge/peanut butter squares. Thinking about it now is makes my mouth water. Can’t wait!!!
