Pillsbury Cookie Dough
package Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookie dough
cup dark chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups whipping cream
container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy™ cream cheese frosting
tablespoons white chocolate liqueur (or 1 tablespoon white chocolate or vanilla extract)
teaspoon peppermint extract
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 24-cup mini muffin tin with nonstick baking spray. Set aside.
Knead the Pillsbury cookie dough together with flour until well combined. Roll 1-1/2 tablespoons of dough into a ball and place it into the prepared mini muffin pan. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake in preheated oven for 12-18 minutes, or just until the edges of the dough begin to turn a light golden brown.
Remove cookies from the oven and, using the end of a wooden rolling pin, press the center of each cookie down to create an indent for the mousse filling. Gently remove from the tins.
Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 60 seconds, or just until the chocolate melts. Stir until smooth. Dip the tops of each cookie cup into the melted chocolate. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes to rim the cups. Set aside until chocolate hardens.
In a stand mixer, whip the whipping cream with a beater attachment until soft peaks form. Add frosting, liqueur, and peppermint extract to the whipping cream and beat just until firm peaks form. Spoon the mousse mixture into an icing bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe mousse mixture into the center of each cookie cup. Sprinkle with crushed chocolate chips, if desired. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

16 Favourite Boozy Desserts for Any Season
It’s no secret that I like to make Boozy Desserts and I have posted about a lot of them over the years. In fact I usually visit the bottle shop with dessert recipes in mind, not cocktails or after work drinks! I have long been fascinated by the way that different spirits can pair so well with certain ingredients, like peaches and bourbon, chocolate and muscat or berries and moscato. And a sticky date pudding is nothing without a bourbon caramel sauce to go with it.
So I thought I’d take a trip through the archives to show you some of my very favourite boozy desserts – sixteen, in fact – from the last several years to hopefully inspire you to try out one or two for yourself. These are recipes from all seasons, from boozy popsicles for summer, to warm puddings for cold winter nights.
1. Chocolate Espresso Mousse with Peanut Pretzel Bark
Chocolate pairs well with so many different kinds of booze. This Chocolate Espresso Mousse contains a relatively new favourite of mine – Mr Black Cold Pressed Coffee Liqueur. If you haven’t tried it yet, you definitely should. It makes a mean espresso martini. Actually, I can’t believe I don’t have an espresso martini inspired dessert!
2. Boozy Candy Cane Spiders
If you need a fun, boozy Christmas-time treat, here it is. My delicious No Churn Candy Cane Ice Cream is turned into a boozy ‘Spider’ or ice cream float with white chocolate liqueur. The combination is delicious, especially because Christmas falls during the summer here in Australia.
3. Chocolate Cherry Bourbon Cheesecake
Bourbon is probably the most common spirit I use in baking because it goes so well with everything from fruit to chocolate to caramel. But don’t worry, the flavour is subtle and lovely in this cheesecake and pairs perfectly with the cherries.
4. Mulled Wine Glazed Doughnuts
Your whole house will smell delicious and spicy while you simmer the mulled wine for this delicious syrup. And if you bottle it up nicely, it makes a lovely Christmas gift. Or you can use it to make the most amazing doughnut glaze.
5. Brownie Cookies with Maple Bourbon Buttercream
Still one of my favourite cookie recipes ever, and one that I make often. They also makes great ice cream sandwiches. The maple flavoured buttercream is enhanced with a hint of bourbon. I told you I used a lot of bourbon! The flavours are really great and some salt helps to balance out the sweetness.
6. Berry & Moscato Trifles
I think Christmas is always a fun time to experiment with boozy desserts. It just adds some festive cheer, don’t you think? Moscato and berries are a match made in heaven. I love how pretty these Trifles look as individual servings, but I’ve also made this as one big trifle in a beautiful glass bowl.
7. Churros with Orange Spiked Hot Chocolate
If you’re eating doughnuts and hot chocolate, you might as well go all out with a shot of Cointreau in your boozy hot chocolate! This is equally perfect for breakfast like they do in Spain or dessert.
8. Sticky Date Bourbon and Cola Pudding
This recipe called to me from the pages of the Pitt Cue Co. Cookbook and it was just as delicious as it sounds. Sticky Date Pudding is one of my favourite desserts ever, and practically demands booze to keep you warm on those cold winter nights. I was intrigued by the Bourbon & Cola twist and it turned out great!
9. Lychee, Gin & Raspberry Ice Blocks
These Lychee, Gin & Raspberry Ice Blocks are like a cocktail but in popsicle form – something I can definitely get behind. I love taking a treat I loved as a child like ice blocks and turning it into a boozy grown up version. I used Hendricks gin because it’s infused with rose petals and cucumber, delicious with the flavours in these pops. Perfect for summer.
10. Salted Caramel & Bourbon Milkshakes
Is a milkshake technically a dessert? I don’t know, but this one sure knows how to party! This is one of my most popular posts ever – my Bourbon Salted Caramel sauce is turned into a very decadent boozy milkshake.
11. Boozy Hot Chocolate
Three delicious ways to make your hot chocolate way more fun this winter! Frangelico is added to a dairy free Nutella Hot Chocolate. Cake-flavoured Vodka goes in the sprinkle-happy Birthday Cake White Hot Chocolate and some white chocolate liqueur makes an appearance in the Red Velvet Hot Chocolate. Just don’t ask me to pick a favourite…
12. Peach and Bourbon Pie
There is something about peaches and bourbon together that works so well. These pies are a celebration of that and all things summer. This is also one of my favourite pastry recipes that I use all the time.
13. Pimms Trifle
When I’m catching up with the girls, we usually order a jug of Pimms to share. This dessert is inspired by those happy memories with a focus on the flavours that go into a classic Pimms Cup – cucumber, strawberry and lemon. You can really taste the Pimms in this dessert.
14. Chocolate Whisky Pudding with Passionfruit Ice Cream
Now this is one of my favourite boozy desserts ever. The flavours of chocolate, whisky and passionfruit are just perfect together. It’s actually pretty easy to make and the epitome of winter comfort food. One of my whisky-loving friends made this recently and loved it too.
15. Nectarine, Raspberry and Chambord Pie
Chambord is a black raspberry liqueur that pairs perfectly with almost any summer fruit dessert. Of course I had to add a generous splash into the fruit mixture for this pie and it was delicious.
16. Negroni Poached Pears
This recipe is of course inspired by the classic Italian aperitif, the Negroni. I remember how good this made my apartment smell as I was poaching the pears in the Vermouth, Campari and Gin mixture for a sophisticated take on the boozy dessert. It’s a great way to finish off a dinner party because it’s not too heavy or too sweet.
I hope you’re inspired by this roundup of Boozy Desserts. If you do try any of them please make sure to tag me in your photo on Instagram so I can see it too!

Tips for Baking with Alcohol
Baking boozy desserts is so much fun, and it's a great way to add an extra layer of flavor to your favorite baked goods. But there are a few things you should know before you break out the Bourbon, Brandy, and Bailey's!
1. There will still be a tiny bit of alcohol left. The amount of alcohol that remains in your desserts depends on how long you cook or bake it, but most boozy desserts will not actually get you drunk. No matter how long you bake something, there's a good chance that there's still a little bit of alcohol left behind.
2. Booze is a kitchen lifesaver. By far, the best way to use wine and spirits in desserts is as a substitute for extracts. Bourbon makes a great substitute for vanilla extract. You could add a splash of rum if you want a flavor that's a little more tropical. And a splash of vodka is a great way to enhance the flavors that are already in your cupcakes, cookies, and scones.
3. Don't overdo it! Using wine and spirits in your baked goods is all about moderation. Just a little bit too much, and the alcohol is all you will taste. If you are modifying a recipe to be your own boozy creation, start out with just a little bit of booze and add more until you get the desired taste.

No-Bake Tortes and Balls
Going for no-bake desserts doesn't mean you have to abandon traditional flavors. Serve a Vegan Avocado Chocolate Torte as a stand-in for baked pies or tarts.
Or serve your guests healthy but delicious avocado fudge balls. The dark chocolate, avocado and coconut butter make each ball rich and decadent-tasting, even though it's loaded with healthy fats. Customize your fudge balls with fun toppings — try slivered almonds, crushed pistachios or a dash of sea salt — or by adding orange, almond or raspberry flavorings to the avocado filling mixture.
Both of these impressive but simple desserts must be frozen before serving, so you can make them the day before your feast for a stress-free dessert.
I have seen a few molded pops on the internet and I got a Facebook request to make a tutorial on them, so I decided to give it a try. As a side note,&hellip
