When I think of the Christmas Holiday Season I think of delicious and rich things that satisfy all of the senses.
The beautiful lights, sweet holiday music, delicious smells and of course the most amazing tastes.
The Christmas season is the perfect time of year to try out some new holiday sweets!
The following recipes are sure to be a hit with your friends and family:
Frugal Christmas Candy - My family has already been asking since October when we will be able to have their favorite Christmas candy again. This is something I make several times during the holidays only.
Snickers Moose Munch – This is the perfect treat to bag up and give away to teachers or other service workers in your life. Just make sure you put it in an air tight container to keep it fresh.
Chewy Gingerbread Cookies – Gingerbread is almost synonymous with Christmas. I grew up eating the hard, crunchy Gingerbread man cookies. This chewy version is SO much better!!
Reindeer Nutter Butter Cookies – This is a fun treat for the little ones in your life. And they couldn’t be easier to make. Simply take one of my favorite Nutter Butter Cookies and cover them in chocolate before adding a few special touches to turn them from ordinary Nutter Butter cookies to extraordinary chocolate covered deliciousness!
Peppermint Oreo Cookie Balls – Using seasonal peppermint flavored Oreos and a few other ingredients, you can create these Peppermint Oreo Balls that your family will love!
I love this time of year because I can try out new recipes. Many of them are SO rich and decadent that this is the only time of year I can justify them. My family loves the fact that each days seems to bring another amazing recipe that they get to enjoy.
I hope you’ll try at least one of the recipes above with your family and friends this year too!
