Five New Year’s Eve Dessert Ideas: Champagne Cake And Other Sweet Treats

Need a few easy New Year’s Eve dessert recipes for your year-end bash? Ring in 2015 with easy-to-make treats like Death by Chocolate, Champagne Cake, Whoopie Pies, Molten Peppermint Chocolate Cakes, and classic Bourbon Balls.

Nothing says “Happy New Year” like food, friends, and the Times Square Ball drop! Chill the champagne, make a few appetizers, set out the desserts, and get ready to watch Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2015 with Ryan Seacrest on ABC. After a few glasses of champagne, you may or may not care if you know the words to the classic New Year’s Song Auld Lang Syne, but chances are you’ll join the crowd and belt out a few of the lyrics.

All Recipes has an easy recipe for Bourbon Balls that will add a little kick to your night. Even if you’re not a fan of bourbon, you may end up loving the tasty combination of chocolate, confectioner’s sugar, and liquor.

New Year’s Champagne Cake tastes as delicious as it looks. You can’t ring in 2015 without champagne, so this is a must-make dessert for New Year’s Eve. Champagne, strawberries, and a boxed cake mix make this one of the fastest desserts you can make — and it looks impressive, too.

If you have a little more time to prepare dessert, try the Taste of Home‘s Molten Peppermint Chocolate Cakes — they’re great for a party or as a dessert after you serve a prime rib roast for New Year’s Eve dinner.

If you like adding a little liquor to your desserts, head out to the bookstore before it closes and grab the book Booze Cakes: Confections Spiked With Spirits to add an extra nip to your New Year’s Eve party. The recipes look amazing and include sweet, liquor-infused goodies like Spiked Ice Cream Cake, Rum & Coke Whoopie Pies, and Strawberry Margarita Cheesecake.

If you need ingredients for your New Year’s Eve desserts, head to the store early. Most stores close early on December 31 and it’s really hard to find what you need at 7-11 — unless you enjoy counting down to 2015 with a day-old doughnut.
