Christmas Charcuterie Cups

The fun part about making these easy dessert cups is that you can buy everything and add. You don’t even have to cook or bake anything if you don’t want!

Sometimes, I like to make homemade cookies and add them – but that depends on my timeframe. My boys love it when I make these treats, so I have free range to switch up how I make them.

These look cool on the holiday dessert table or are perfect for serving up at holiday parties. There are so many options when it comes to this sweet treat!

What other ingredients could I add to these dessert cups?

The sky is the limit! You can add other types of cookies, storebought or homemade. Have fun changing the flavors and options because that is a fun way to change the look and taste.

You can also add other simple and delicious Christmas desserts as well. And don’t forget that adding chocolate is a great way to create a delicious taste!
