My Favorite Holiday Treats

One of the best things about Christmas is the treats. Cookies, cupcakes, chocolate-covered pretzels, they are all so delicious and definitely part of the celebration. Without your peppermint bark, how could you possibly celebrate the most giving holiday of the year?

I am a girl who has a huge sweet tooth, so I’ve had my share of holiday treats. Below is a list of my absolute favorite holiday goodies.

  1. Peanut Butter-covered Hershey Kisses: take a Hershey’s Kiss and dip it into peanut butter. It’s like a Reese’s Pieces without the two-for-a-package limitation.

  2. Peppermint Hot Chocolate: instead of buying expensive peppermint mix, buy normal hot chocolate and make a cup. Then, take a candy cane to stir. The heat of the drink will melt the candy cane and you’ll be sipping peppermint and chocolate all night long!

  3. Give the Gift of Cake: the perfect gift for all your friends! Make a square-shaped cake. Once cooled, frost the cake either white, red, or green. Then get creative creating bows and swirls to create the cutest little cake present ever!

  1. Klondike Cookie Sandwich: who doesn’t love Klondike bars and cookies? So, make a special treat and place a Klondike bar between two cookies (of your choice) and make a sandwich even better than PB&J.

  2. Snowmen Cupcakes: snowmen are a part of holiday culture, so incorporate them into your holiday treats! make a normal cupcake of your choice (preferably a lighter mix) and frost it with white frosting. Take three marshmallows and connect them one on top of the other with frosting. Give it two little pretzel arms, a M&M nose, and Snow Cap eyes and buttons. Stick little Frosty the Snowman to the cupcake and enjoy a great treat!

Enjoy your treats and have a fantastic holiday.
