That way, we'll have less to worry about and more time to celebrate and be with the ones we love. From party desserts to easy dessert recipes and more, these are our favorite make-ahead desserts that you can simply pop in the freezer and thaw or bake when ready. It's as easy as pie!

    Easy Single-Serving Apple Crisp aka "Michelle's Apple Crisp"

    A Souper Cubes® family recipe, this mouthwatering Apple Crisp uses wholesome ingredients (including pecans in the crisp…can you say "mmm"?) and a bit of light cooking upfront to create an authentic masterpiece that layers, freezes, and bakes seamlessly. A real crowd-pleaser, try prepping and storing in our 1-Cup or 2-Cup trays, baking in our Stoneware, and serving with whipped topping or your favorite ice cream!

    Homemade Peppermint Patties {Paleo}

    This sweet yet harmless Homemade Peppermint Patty Recipe uses our original Cookie Tray™ to create just the right shape and size. Made with zero refined sugar, they're easy and fun to make – and not to mention are delicious! Store in the fridge in your Cookie Tray™ for 3-4 days, or in the freezer for up to a month – and serve chilled (rather than frozen). Then be sure to give yourself a peppermint pat on the back!

    No-Bake Cookies & Cream Cheesecake Ice Cream Bars

    This heavenly recipe combines two of our favorite things: Oreos and cheesecake! (Or, to give it even more of a holiday twist, you can substitute the Oreos for gingersnap cookies – they're good either way!) For individual ice cream cake slices, use our Half-Cup Tray. For ice cream bites, you can use our 2-Tablespoon Tray. Either way, it'll be a trip for everyone's taste buds when the delicious cookie crust collides with the melt-in-your-mouth cheesecake filling.

    Chocolate Strawberry Crunch Bites

    These easy-to-make Chocolate Strawberry Crunch Bites are perfectly shaped thanks to our silicone Cookie Tray™. You can use either fresh or frozen strawberries and still retain the perfect ratio of chocolate to fruit. Graced with a bit of extra crunch from puffed quinoa, these go-to poppables will please everyone at the party.

    Linda's Famous Jazzy Oatmeal Cookies

    This versatile Oatmeal Cookie Recipe by Jake's mother, Linda, doesn't make just your average oat cookies! Yes, the cookies have raisins, but they dance with delight from chopped pecans and chocolate chips, too. Substitute cranberries, walnuts, peanut butter chips, and more! Just chill your cookie dough in our perfectly portioned Cookie Tray™, and you can bake from frozen the day of. It's so easy, the only problem you'll have is keeping them in stock!

    And with that, you're all set to have a successful, scrumptious soirée. With these easy holiday recipes, you can provide a delightful spread of sweet treats that will leave everyone with a smile on their faces and a satisfied sweet tooth! Making holiday desserts ahead of time with Souper Cubes® can not only ease the stress of entertaining but can also allow for more enjoyment of the festivities and quality time with your loved ones.
