10 Holiday Dessert Favorites Made for Kids

This post is seriously fabulous. That’s why it’s brought to you by The Everyday Collection by Target. Click here to explore more of the collection. Click here to see more of the discussion.

There are so many fantastic holiday desserts this time of year. I love everything from champagne jellies, to eggnog, to holiday trifles. They all bring back wonderful memories of past holidays and each bite is particularly enjoyable since it only comes once a year. Of course, these holiday desserts are great for kids, too. Eggnog, for example, can be made with or without liquor, and there is nothing wrong with regular sparkling jelly instead of that made with champagne. To give your kids the chance to enjoy classic holiday desserts here are ways you can prepare each one just for them!
