Christmas Treat Inspiration And Recipes

With Christmas just around the corner I’m sure people are scavenging around and searching for those perfect treats for all those holidays party’s and of course just for around the house. There are so many yummy and cute little treats that are easy to make. From Santa hats to peppermint sticks, there’s a dessert for every occasion!

One thing that I love about the holidays is that there are so many unique and yummy treats. So many of them are very simple to make and used from basic ingredients most people probably have around the house anyway. Also, because there is such a large variety of deserts and snacks the baker has the choice of making a big treat or just bite sized treats. One of the best things about going to a Christmas party is seeing all the unique and creative treats. There’s nothing better than friends, family and food for the holidays! I thought I’d make it easier and provide links to delicious treats to pass around!

Cake Pops

Cake pops: the new treat for every occasion.

Before this year I have never heard or seen cake pops, but I have to say they are defiantly a great idea! For those of you who don’t know what they are, they’re basically small balls of cake, dipped in frosting, maybe some sprinkles or nuts and then with a popsicle stick through them. Some bakers get really creative and decorate them with different prints, designs, ect. They are defiantly a creative dessert for any party, wedding, or just a treat for at home! I think two reasons why they are becoming so popular is because they are small, but yet the perfect size and easy to eat instead of a slice of cake!
