Winter Wedding Dessert Ideas: Indulgent Chocolate
The first thing that comes to mind when we think about winter weddings is chocolate. Who cares about a few extra calories in the wintertime that can be melted off while dancing?
Ooey-gooey molten lava cakes, chocolate truffles, chocolate mousse accompanied by a nice cup of hot cocoa will definitely hit the spot. And you’ll save a few bucks as rich-dark chocolate demands less and smaller portions. 😉
An absolutely unique hot-chocolate station that offers some white cocoa, mini-marshmallows and colorful sprinkles. Voilá! Make your own Unicorn white hot chocolate to accompany other winter wedding treats!
Amedei Chuao chocolate, winter cherry-skin cappuccino and buckwheat textures. My mouth is watering already. A very original way to present homemade chocolates: chocolate spoons. Unicorn white hot chocolate. Fun and delicious chocolate lollipops for your dessert bar.
Classic Winter Dessert Ideas: Creme Brûlée
What’s not to love about custard covered with a crunchy layer of caramel?
Serve it as your sit-down dinner or add a few delicious creme brûlée doughnuts to your sweets station.
Original Winter Wedding Dessert Ideas: Pavlovas
If you’ve never had pavlova before, the outside is nice and crispy, and the inside is sweet and soft like a melted marshmallow. Crowned with some cranberry orange and chocolate slivers and you’ll devour it!
Winter Wedding Dessert Ideas: Let Them Eat Cakes!
From a classic Tiramisu with pound cake, an almond orange spice cake, to a red velvet or mini cakes with fruits of the forest, make sure your dessert table features at least one of these! For a trendy and glam look, add some gold foil layers!
Pair them up with hot cocoa. And these mini cakes are easy to eat while dancing!
Winter Wedding Desserts: Cookies & Pastries
All cookies and pastries are delicious. But Linzer cookies, eclairs and chocolate-covered croissants, are perfect for winter weddings. This time, add a British tea bar.
Winter Wedding Dessert Ideas: Pies & Tartlets
Pies with fruits of the forest, nuts and berries are a classic during the winter season. Any pie is perfect really, but we prefer apple or plum pies. You can serve them in their standard size or in their mini tartlet version.

Crunchy hot churros, anyone? Adding churros dipped in chocolate to your dessert table will elicit smiles from your guests and warm their tummies on a cold winter night.

Most weddings have a fruit section on the dessert station. Add a healthy option to your winter wedding desserts.
We were tempted by these baked pears dipped in honey, cranberries and pecans. And you?
Winter Wedding Dessert Ideas: Ice Cream
Everybody loves ice cream. With the right accompaniments or presentation, this creamy treat will win over your guests’ hearts.
Winter Dessert Bar Ideas for your Reception
Tempting and mouthwatering options for your dessert bar range from goat cheese truffles to a doughnut wall or a waffle bar. They all give a sensation of warmth that contrasts with the icy cold winter season.
