Champagne and desserts go together like peanut butter goes with jelly. Literally… as in mix the champagne and dessert together to make a snack that’ll have you and your guests noming and nodding with wide-eyed appreciation. (Champagne has that kind of insane power over taste buds!)
The big DIY question is, how do you make a dessert with the bubbly liquid of royalty? Look no further. Champagne can be mixed, moshed, baked and caked in a number of different ways.
So let’s not talk about… let’s swoon about it!
Champagne Cake with Rose Buttercream from PassTheCookies.com
Champagne and roses have always gone together in a “here’s-your-drink-and-here’s-your-flowers-kiss-kiss” kind of way. This recipe has deliciously married the duo into a cake that, quite frankly, makes my mouth water with heavy anticipation. Click, click if you’re getting that hungry feeling too.
Champagne Cupcakes from Pizzazzerie.com
While these may look quite New Year’s Eve-ish, I say enjoy them this evening, tomorrow evening, next Thursday morning (why not?), and so on. The fact that you made it through another day is a perfectly acceptable time to wave your hands in the air and eat champagne cupcakes like you just don’t care.
Mini Strawberry Champagne Cheesecakes from LifeLoveAndSugar.com
There’s champagne in the cheesecake and champagne in the whipped cream. Need I say more?
3 Ingredient Champagne Cake Dip from SugarAndSoul.com
This is a SUPER easy dish for potluck events. (Like 5 minute prep time easy.) My only suggestion is that you make 3-4 batches well before the targeted event. Why? Because you’ll want to eat entire bowls of this stuff all by yourself before you’re ready to share. (Don’t say you haven’t been warned.)
Clementine, Champagne and Rosemary Possets from FigsAndPigs.com
The flavor profile of this recipe screams sophistication. But not so much that a guest at the table won’t lick the inside of the clementine when no one is looking. (Or is that just me?)
Pink Champagne Panna Cotta and Donut Shots From SprinkleBakes.com
Sometimes you just want to show off. You want your guests to leave feeling like they just ate a dessert prepared by Martha Stewart or Ina Gartner’s unknown twin. Well this is the recipe you whip out for those occasions. This is the one that says, “I am the queen of the lady party scene — and don’t you forget it!”
Champagne Popsicles with St. Germain and Edible Flowers from CookingWithJanica.com
If you’ve ever strolled past the edible flowers in the herb section at Whole Foods and thought to yourself, “Hmmm… what could I put those on?”, now you have the answer. The addition of St. Germain — which is an elderflower liqueur — really adds a special touch.
Potato Chip Salted Champagne Caramels from HowSweetEats.com
The next time you’re in a crazy rush to find a gift for that friend who has everything — (including the fully stacked walk-in closet to prove it) — just whip up a healthy batch of these pretties and accept your praise graciously.
Grapefruit Champagne Mimosa Cupcakes from BakingAMoment.com
If you’re not fond of orangey tasting cupcakes (I’m not) this recipe offers a welcome breakaway from the traditional mimosa flavor. Also, I like going with a sweeter champagne (or sparkling wine) as a dry brut might lend too tart of a taste. (And we’re not into wasting booze are we? Noooooo.)
Champagne Sugar Cookies from ShowMeTheYummy.com
I find it hard to believe that such eye candy has a prep time of only 10 minutes. 10 minutes, I say! And (as if that’s not enough) there’s champagne in both the cookie and the buttercream. Drop the mic and get busy baking.
Chocolate Raspberry Champagne Cupcakes from YummyCrumble.com
You didn’t think I’d forsake you chocolate lovers, did you? I could never be so cruel, especially when there’s Dutch cocoa involved. And whilst the entire package gives me hungry eyes, that raspberry champagne glaze really has my taste buds tingling. I can imagine it on ice cream, or even directly from the pot to my mouth.
