NYC’s Best Christmas Desserts – 2022


For the last few years in New York, we always end the year with a special Christmas dessert review.  We have shared the best desserts to be had at our favourite NYC Christmas Market, where to go for dessert after prancing around the city on a tour of the best Christmas lights, where to find the most exquisite Christmas chocolates and hot chocolate in Soho, and why you need to include peppermint bark at the Christmas feasting table.  This year, we round up the best Christmas desserts for a quick-and-easy sugar refuel as you run about doing your last minute Christmas shopping – Merry Christmas all!
