This isn’t one of those novelty spiked desserts, where you can’t actually taste any booze. The cake, as fluffy and soft as it is, truly tastes bubbly. And even the whipped cream has champagne! Strawberry Champagne Trifles are made with layers of homemade champagne pudding, fresh chopped strawberries, and chopped cookies. They’re SO good! These strawberry champagne trifles serve two comfortably in a mini trifle dish, but I think it would be awesome to double or triple the recipe and make mini shooters for a New Year’s Eve party dessert. One of my favorite New Years eve dessert recipes for celebrating the New Year!

18. Coconut Macaroons

Coconut Macaroons

It has always puzzled me why the holiday of Passover involves macaroons. Each year when I start my Passover shopping expeditions, at some point I always end up with a can of macaroons in my hand, wondering if this year I should buy the chocolate chip or try some new flavor. Also, each year I wonder where this tradition came from or better yet, what macaroons are all together? It’s so delicious and mouthwatering and also easy to make within 30 minutes. One of the best New Years desserts or new years dessert ideas I must say.

15. Key Lime Pie Tartlets

Key Lime Pie Tartlets

My friends requested some sort of key lime pie dessert to celebrate my mother’s birthday. I was going to go with a traditional pie, but after passing by one of my favorite ingredients at the store (these adorable mini phyllo cups), I thought it would be fun to try “bite-sized”.
And sure enough, these were SO delicious! Seriously. I’m pretty sure I may have accidentally eaten a handful when garnishing them. There was something about the smooth, citrusy custard paired with the flaky, crispy shells that just seemed like the perfect combination. So for those of you who love key lime pie tartlets or those who love a quick 20-minute dessert, you really, really, really should try these. It’s really one of the best New Years dessert ideas you will come across.

10. Fudgy Layered Irish Mocha Brownies

 Fudgy Layered Irish Mocha Brownies

It was the holidays so of course, I had to raise the bar on dessert, right? I usually bring an appetizer, but I was in the mood to take a walk on the sweet side of life with these Fudgy Layered Irish Mocha Brownies. They are quite simple to make but have to be assembled in three stages: the brownie layer, the mocha middle, and the ganache topping. Keep in mind, there is some refrigeration time after both the icing and the chocolate finale. If sweet is your thing, then these brownies are for you… If you have any left after a couple of days, wrap tightly and refrigerate. Bring to room temp before serving again. One of the best New Years Eve dessert recipes I have tasted till now.

8. Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies

8. Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies

I’m a big fan of cookies but I never make it at home because I find it to be so tedious and grueling to make with all the layering of phyllo dough and the long baking and cooling times. It’s just not for me. So I came up with a way to get all of those delicious baklava flavors in a much simpler-to-make thumbprint cookie. The perfect fit for those cookie tins! If you plan to make these cookies in advance, I suggest baking off the cookies as directed. Make the syrup in advance and keep it in the fridge as I had suggested earlier, and then just drizzle the cookies with the room temperature syrup on the day you plan on serving/eating them. It’s one of the amazing New Years Dessert ideas and I am sure you are gonna love it.

6. Gingerbread Cookie Bars

gerbread Cookie Bars

What you are looking at here is a cake type of bar very reminiscent of gingerbread.  Moist and filled with spice and molasses with plenty of cinnamon and ginger and cloves. But that’s not where the pleasure ends. Top that moist, dark, and delicious cake with a lush creamy icing. A cream cheese icing. Rich and indulgent. But the pleasure doesn’t end there. Nope. There is more deliciousness to be found. The next bit is purely optional of course.  But . . .  I have chosen to top that lush cream cheese frosting with little bits of candied ginger root and toasted walnuts. It’s just too delicious to resist and one of the best New Years desserts ever.

White Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Mousse

This White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Cake might be my new favorite! With layers of moist vanilla cake, raspberry filling, and white chocolate & raspberry mousse, it’s wonderfully light and yummy!
