The Christmas Tree Cake

I already spilled the tea on my longtime love for these popular snack cakes in my recipe post for Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cheesecake Cups!

Every Christmas season, we always grab a box (or 3) of Christmas tree cakes and have them on hand for festive snacking. Have you seen my Christmas dessert board? You will see tree cakes on there! One year I tossed a whole bunch of tree cakes into my clear glass snack jar and set it on the counter on Christmas Eve. It was a big hit!

Nowadays, you can find these seasonal snack cakes on all sorts of fun apparel – including tree cake shirts and even tree cake earrings.

Christmas Tree Cake Dip Ingredients

To make this dessert dip, you will need the following:

  • 8-oz tub Cool Whip whipped topping
