Ad failed to load

Now that it is time to welcome a new year, champagne is probably on your mind. After all, a celebration doesn't seem complete without it, and New Year's Eve is no exception. And while you can't go wrong with a classic glass of bubbly, why not add New Year's Eve dessert recipes made with champagne to the mix? It's another way to savor this classy drink, especially if you're hosting a holiday party or have a sweet tooth that won't quit. In fact, champagne is such a huge part of New Year's Eve that Dec. 31 is also National Champagne Day.

Don't let the idea of making desserts with champagne intimidate you, though. Many of these recipes aren't any different than your average baked treat, and often, all you need is a small amount of champagne. The only catch? You'll be left with a bottle of bubbly to kill, so make sure you have someone to help you out. It's the perfect excuse to throw a baking party with your BFF.

To top things off, make a few champagne cocktail recipes and whip up New Year's Eve decor with old holiday supplies. Seriously, you'd be surprised at how versatile old wrapping paper and tinsel can be. And once you roll out these champagne desserts, you'll be on the way to the ultimate New Year's bash.
