Christmas Desserts You Can Make Now And Freeze
Plan For The Holidays: Easy Christmas Desserts
Easy Christmas desserts are a must for our family, and the recipes are pretty traditional.
Since I moved to Canada, the holiday season and food have been significant for my wife’s family.
Without fail, we would go home for Christmas with containers of easy desserts that we made and froze.
Baking at the CBB house starts on Dec 1 and continues until we have enough to pass on as edible gifts.
We always made many extra Christmas desserts for anyone at the house.
We must give guests a small plate of easy Christmas desserts to take home for the holidays.
There was always that aura of happiness with the Christmas decorations inside and out and an amazingly decorated tree.
It was a big deal to my inlaws to have the entire family home for Christmas, and we made that trip without thought.
Christmas was always at my inlaws, and we’d stay a week, sometimes two, depending on our holiday schedule from work.
We’d often leave after New Year’s, head home, and be happy that we made more memories to hold in our hearts.

How To Print The Christmas Tag
If you Right Click on the Christmas tag below and open it in Microsoft Photo Viewer, you can print as many as you’d like on one sheet.
Our Little Christmas Celebration
We will be hosting a little Christmas with only five adults and two children this Christmas.
Lots have changed for our Canadian family due to things beyond our control; they are only memories.
With Covid 19, death and illness have crushed our hearts, which hurts the most at Christmas.
December is also a busy month for Mrs. CBB and me as we prepare for Christmas and our Anniversary.
My Mrs. was a December bride. I asked her to marry me at Christmas in the middle of the year.
So, December is not only a time when family comes together, but we plan something special for ourselves.
However, now that we have a 6-year-old, unless we get a sitter, we are enjoying a family anniversary.
Stress-Free Easy Christmas Desserts
Christmas is stressful for many reasons, but planning is the key to happiness.
When you host a Christmas Dinner or Christmas Eve Dinner, you must plan and write everything you need in advance.
The last thing you want is to run back and forth to the grocery store to get missed ingredients.
Take deep breaths, start with the first chores you must do, and move to the next until you have to put your plan into motion.
Tips For Hosting A Christmas Dinner
Below are a few things a host must do before having guests for Christmas dinner and baking easy Christmas desserts.
- I am hosting Christmas by sending invites and shopping for decor, beverages, alcohol, groceries, etc.
- Baking easy Christmas desserts and ensuring you make enough and have holiday plates and tins to give away
- Buying Christmas Gifts and stocking stuffers for family
- Wrapping Christmas Gifts and ensure you have enough wrapping paper, tape, tags, bags, and tissue paper.
- Christmas outfits for the family if you like to wear the same companies or host an ugly Christmas sweater event
- Ensure the table is big enough for the number of people coming over for Christmas Dinner, Christmas Eve, and New Year’s.
I’m sure all of us reading can come up with other stressful events for planning Christmas, but in the end, it’s always worth it.
This year, we are hosting and want to ensure we provide the same easy Christmas desserts plus one new one.
Traditional baking is excellent, especially if you have cultural recipes that are a must on your holiday baking list.
Keto Easy Christmas Desserts
Besides our home’s traditional Christmas baking extravaganza, we will also make Keto Christmas Desserts.
Although Mrs. CBB and one other family member are keto for life, we modify our easy Christmas desserts, and voila.
It’s simple to make a chocolate peanut butter ball, one of our easy Christmas desserts, and make it keto.
You can’t tell the difference, but for anyone watching their carb and sugar intake, they are a nice treat without the guilt.
We’ve got you covered for those who don’t mind a bit of guilt and splurging.
Below are excellent choices for easy Christmas desserts, but they are all Keto, Low-Carb, and Sugar-free.
I’ll write a post specifically for Keto Easy Christmas Desserts and explain more.

Home And Blog Update
Like most people, we are preparing for Christmas by writing out a master baking list to have all the ingredients.
Since we are hosting this year, we don’t want to mess it up, ha!
I’ve got the Christmas wreath up over the garage, and the lights on the house are beautiful at night.
I plan to go to Canadian Tire tonight to get my new tires and a couple of packs of white lights to string around the trees out front.
Mrs. CBB has the job of putting out the Christmas decorations in a big bin under our stairs.
Besides that, I’ve been working from home most days, and we made a trip to the city, which I cringe at because it’s so busy.
Plus, I had to pay $20 for parking, which makes my blood boil like $20 is massive but not for Toronto.
We had to bring our son to Sick Kids to see his doctor, but that will be the last visit for the year.
As I mentioned on Facebook, we’ve been experimenting with Food Kits for the last 2 weeks.
I purchased 3 meals from two Ontario food kit companies and will blog about it.
Is it worth it? How much would it cost us to make the same meal at home?
I already know I’m going to be SHOCKED. More to come on that topic soon.
Not a whole heck of a lot has happened on the blog apart from me updating posts, fixing broken links, and ensuring they all comply with Search Engine Optimization.
If you ever find a broken link, please alert me to fix it. 🙂
I want to complete a budget binder in the new year. That’s all I will say.
