What do you love most about the holidays? For us, holiday treats are at the top of the list! This season is filled with so much delicious food, it’s hard to keep track of it all! From Thanksgiving through New Year’s, we love all the festive treats and snacks that help define the holiday season.
With many of us staying home more and cooking more, 2020 is the year to dive in and make lots of holiday treats! Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered with five delicious holiday treats that are easy to make to home.
Holiday Light Cupcakes
These festive cupcakes might look like a lot of work, but are easy to decorate. The holiday lights will bring extra cheer to anyone. We love this Good Housekeeping recipe (plus, they have 50 other holiday recipes to check out). Have fun and even if the lights on perfect, they still work because lights on most houses or trees aren’t perfect either.
Homemade Peppermint Patties
Few things make us think of the holidays as much as peppermint. That distinctive flavor and taste can’t be beat! Add chocolate and you’ve got the perfect holiday treat. That’s why we love this easy homemade peppermint patties recipe. They are perfect as gifts and you’ll thank yourself for making them!
No-Bake Holiday Treats
When we said we had easy holiday treat recipes, we meant it. It doesn’t get much simpler than delicious, no-bake treats! This Betty Crocker recipe uses cereal and marshmallows for a special sweet treat that you can cut into bars or mold into fun shapes. We’ll definitely take seconds!
This holiday treat isn’t just simple; it’s fun to make for all ages. Who wouldn’t love some sweet and chocolatey reindeer chow? This recipe from This Silly Girl’s Kitchen is one of our favorites. This snack is just for humans, though. We don’t recommend sharing it with reindeer.
It wouldn’t be the holidays without the iconic holiday sugar cookie! This Delish recipe is for the perfect sugar cookie and we have to agree. You can mold the dough into a traditional cookie shape or cut it into holiday shapes and decorate with frosting. Even without cookie exchanges this year, you can’t not make holiday sugar cookies.
We believe it’s how you live that matters. Finding new and special ways to celebrate the holidays will bring a smile to your face! Indulge in some holiday treats and help spread joy and happiness.
Enjoy the holiday season!
