No holiday dinner is complete until you’ve had dessert. Whether you’re a chocolate lover or prefer a bit of spice and fruit, one of these Thanksgiving treats is sure to be the perfect dish to cap off your holiday feast. Take advantage of our delicious collection of Hickory Farms desserts to add something extra special to your treats.
Apples are one of nature’s finest fall fruits. Celebrate the harvest with a Caramel Apple Cake. Start by baking an apple spice cake with applesauce, cloves, ground ginger and allspice. Then, make the topping by melting caramel candies with a bit of water. For a traditional take on the recipe, finish the cake with chopped walnuts or, for something a little bit more festive, substitute the walnuts with a dusting of our Famously Thin Peanut Brittles, roughly chopped in a food processor.
Blueberry Pound Cake is a fantastically flexible dish that can be either a sweet ending to your meal or a festive Thanksgiving breakfast. To prepare the cake, blend dry cake ingredients with vanilla, eggs, butter and, of course, blueberries. Take the finished cake to the next level by drizzling it with a fruit glaze. Simply combine one of our Farmstead Fruit Spreads, such as Wild Blueberry, Strawberry or Red Raspberry, in a small saucepan with water until everything’s well combined.
For an easy-to-prepare treat, try a delicious combination of chocolate, mint and buttery crackers. In a double broiler, melt a handful of dark-cocoa-mint wafers and dip each cracker until fully coated. Top the crackers with our crushed Peppermint Snow Mints.
Give your guests holiday dessert options with a cookie platter. For a twist on a holiday classic prepare a batch of chewy chocolate Gingerbread cookies with molasses, ground ginger, and chocolate chips. Arrange your homemade cookies on a platter along with our delicious Lemon Shortbread Cookies.
