Top Five Best Baked Christmas Goodies
T’s Top Five Choices For Christmas Sweets
It has become a tradition in our home to bake Christmas Goodies to share with our friends and neighbors. A few years ago I asked T to choose some Christmas Sweets he would be interested in cooking. His selections were so delicious and adorable that I have asked him again and again to prepare our list. So here are the Top Five Best Baked Christmas Goodies according to T.
Homemade Peppermint Patties
From Mel’s Kitchen Cafe – T loves Peppermint and chocolate so these were an easy choice. Click below to get the recipe.
Homemade peppermint patties have been on my bucket list of things to make for years. They are my mom’s favorite treat (I’m pretty sure she keeps them in the freezer because apparently frozen peppermint patties are delightful and are harder to find for unsuspecting treat-seeking souls) but I’ve always thought they’d be a bit fussy to make (read: not worth it when the store bought variety will do just fine) so I put it off until just recently.
Christmas Darling Cupcakes
From Stunning Collection – These cupcakes could not be cuter! Generous with the frosting, fun with the m&m lights, and cute enough to dress up any Christmas Goodies Gift Box, these are an excellent choice for a great Christmas Sweet Treat!
Christmas Darling Cupcakes These Christmas Darling Cupcakes are totally adorable and easy to make. Christmas darling cupcakes made with an embellished chocolate cake mix and the best vanilla buttercream frosting. So Yummy!! These darling are perfect Christmas dinner treat and and best wintertime snacks.
Polar Bear Paw Cupcakes
From One Little Project – T has a great love for animals and among his favorites are the Polar Bears. This Christmas recipe combines Polar Bear Paws and peppermint patties so it is no surprise they showed up on this list! This is a super simple recipe!
Remember how we had to write those speeches in elementary school and say them in front of the whole class? (Or at least, that’s what we had to do in our school each year…) I remember when I was in the fifth grade, I wrote my speech all about…
Christmas Marshmallow Pops
From Two Sisters Crafting – T loves Marshmallows! S’More’s are his favorite food. These Christmas Marshmallow Pops should be just the Christmas treat to satisfy him! Another simple and fun Christmas recipe!
Marshmallows + Chocolate = Super Delicious Treat. Add in a lollipop stick and some festive Christmas colors you’ve got yourself a winner Holiday dessert-wise. Our Christmas Marshmallow Pops will not disappoint! They are so easy to make, look so pretty and who doesn’t love marshmallow and chocolate?
Hot Cocoa Cupcakes
From Momtastic – Few things say Christmas like a mug of hot cocoa! These adorable Hot Cocoa Cupcakes are the perfect finishing touch for our Christmas Goodies Gift Baskets!
It’s hard to beat a great cup of hot cocoa, and it’s hard to beat a great cupcake. But combining the two is pure heaven. This year I was tasked with bringing a homemade treat to my office Valentine’s Day party, and rather than turn to a tried and true batch of brownies, I made Hot Cocoa Cupcakes instead, and they were a smash hit.
T and I will be trying each one of these recipes and we will let you know how it goes! Until then, Merry Christmas!
