Dessert Recipes for Thanksgiving Day

Dessert Recipes for Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, can you believe it?

I have been scouring Pinterest and the internet for all the best desserts that will curb all of your Thanksgiving cravings. While I was home this weekend I was even able to test out a few of them.

Recipe # 1

This first recipe comes from Wood and Spoon.

Chocolate Chess Pie. Click the link to see the recipe!

You guys know how much I love chocolate, I am so excited to try this recipe!

Chocolate Chess Pie by The Wood and Spoon Bly by Kate Wood. This gooey fudge pie is a take on the classic Southern recipe. Make with a flaky pie crust and a cocoa powder fudgy filling, this pie is topped with chocolate whipped cream and chocolate curls. Definitely the prettiest pie you'll see this holiday season. Make this pie for Christmas or Thanksgiving as it serves a crowd and is great for sharing. Find the recipe and other old South recipes on

Recipe # 2

This next recipe comes from The Girl Who Ate Everything .

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars (Click the link above to view the recipe).

Don’t these sound like the perfect fall treat? I mean I love a good cheesecake, but then you combine it with apples and caramel? Sounds like a match made in heaven! Definitely another must try!

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars - These bars start with a shortbread crust, a thick cheesecake layer, and are topped with diced cinnamon apples and a sweet streusel topping.

Recipe # 3

This recipe comes from Something Swanky.

Mini Lemon Meringue Pies

I made these two years ago for Thanksgiving and they were a hit!

Recipe # 4 :

This last recipe is one of my own! These are a Thanksgiving staple in my family because we are all fans of The Ohio State football team. Plus, chocolate and peanut butter.. enough said!


1 3/4 – cups JIF peanut butter
1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4-5 cups confectioners’ sugar
4-5 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (melted)


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, butter and vanilla. Add confectioners’ sugar until dough is dry or to taste. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. (If balls aren’t rollable, add more confectioners’ sugar.
  2. Press toothpick into the top of each ball (to be used later for dipping), and chill in the freezer until firm, about 30 minutes. I find it easier to dip if balls are frozen over night, but either works.
  3. Melt chocolate chips in microwave until melted or in a double boiler. Stir frequently until smooth.
  4. Dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate holding onto the toothpick. Leave a small portion of peanut butter at the top so that they look like a ‘Buckeye’. Put back on cookie sheet and chill until serving.

Let me know if you make any of these desserts in the coming holidays!

Is your mouth watering yet?
