Our Favorite Buzzfeed Tasty Desserts for Easy Holiday Baking
If watching Buzzfeed Tasty videos for hours on end is one of your top talents, keep reading; we’ve compiled eight of its most popular holiday dessert videos ( cookies included). Now that you’re on holiday vacation mode and actually have time to bake, we propose a challenge. Instead of drooling over these vids, tagging your friends, and very hungrily closing your browser as per usual, whip one up. (And you should probably invite us over too, because it’s the season of giving and we really like dessert.)
Homemade Apple Cider and Apple Cider Cupcakes: These cider-spiked, cream-cheese-frosted cupcakes are made extra-moist with an unexpected touch of olive oil.
Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding: Bread pudding may technically classify as dessert, but no one would protest if you served a tray of these pillowy brioche cubes, soaked in a creamy pumpkin-spice mixture and baked until golden brown, for breakfast on Christmas morning.
Holiday Sheet Pan Cheesecake Bars: Cheesecake bars mean you can make four different flavors even if you own zero pie pans. Make a base of buttery graham cracker crust on a big ol’ sheet pan and break into sections with extra crackers. The creamy possibilities are endless.

Holiday Party Essentials: Holiday-party hosts don’t need to spend hours cooking complicated sit-down dinners. Make a big batch of spiced wine punch to serve with help-yourself foods like chocolate-covered strawberries and a veggie platter. You’ll impress with little stress.
