Decadent December Sweet Treats To Serve At Your Big Christmas Party
Traditionally, Catholics and Christians in India would hand out home-made sweet treats during the Christmas season. Age-old recipes would be used to make these delicacies, and the treats would be distributed amongst friends and family. Unfortunately, we can’t get our hands on those recipes, since many of them are family secrets but we do have the next best thing – sweet treats from homegrown brands and chefs.
These tasty delights will add a sweet touch to any occasion. So, let’s get started with our list of sweet treats to serve up at your annual Christmas party.
1. Red Velvet Cookies
What’s better than a red velvet cupcake, a red velvet cookie obviously. These mini, bite-sized cookies are completely natural and don’t contain any added dye. The flavour and colour comes from all natural ingredients making these treats a perfect addition to the dessert table at the party.

6. Almond Chocolates
A little chocolate soothes the soul and these bite sized chocolate covered Almonds do just that. Word of caution, you’ll have to constantly replenish a bowl full of these if they’re sitting on your dessert table, as they’re really more-ish. You can’t have just one, only a handful at a time will do!

7. Cinnamon Candy
Cinnamon is one of those spices that is synonymous with the winter and Christmas months. It can be found in cakes, eggnog and now, even in candy. These candies are made from all natural jaggery, which is a great alternative to sugar and spiced with cinnamon. Use them to sweeten and flavour your tea or hot chocolate beverages served at your Christmas party.

Don’t let your guests leave your Christmas party empty handed. Instead, let them walk out with a box of these assorted signature chocolates. There are 20 pieces of chocolate in each box, which include orange, butterscotch, crackle, oreo and coffee truffles. Since they are also eggless, these chocolates can be gifted to everyone.
9. Cheat’s Fruit Cake
Don’t have the time to make a traditional Christmas fruit cake from scratch? Then it’s time to get creative in the kitchen. A cheat’s version of the traditional fruit cake is to use a box cake and add dry fruits to the mix. This Victorian vanilla sponge cake mix will act as the base of your cake. All you need to do is follow the instructions, prepare your dry fruits and add them to the mixture. Once the cake is out of the oven, pour some rum over the cake to give it that boozy element, that all Christmas fruit cakes are known for.
