Top Five Christmas Sweets and Treats

Top Five Christmas Sweets and Treats To Try With Your Kids

Christmas Recipes Worth Baking!

One of the best parts of every holiday gathering is the food. I love trying new things. Last Christmas I went cookie crazy trying all kinds of new recipes. Some were great, like the white chocolate raspberry cookies we made. Some were a huge let down like the hot cocoa cookies. Cute but boring. But the experimenting is part of the fun. So this year I have a collection of fun Christmas treats we will be making. We will be trying at least one a week from now until Christmas! I will update with results.

Well, in Whoville they say – that the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day. And then – the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength of *ten* Grinches, plus two!

1. One of my favorite Christmas traditions is watching The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. When his heart grows 3 sizes too big, mine busts!  I love that movie and I watch it every year. T claims we have watched it too many times! Gasp! I am not above bribery. Hence, number one….

*Update:We Made The Grinch Popcorn and it was awesome! See how it went here.

Grinch Popcorn

What goes with a movie night better than popcorn? It can’t be said enough … I love popcorn. It is so delicious. I am a popcorn purist. All I need is a little bit of butter and salt, and I am set. My family, however, likes the sweet popcorn.

2. Could these be any cuter? I think not!  These are going to be in our stash as well as our share pile this year!

Update: These were a huge hit and so easy to make! 

Easy Christmas Tree Brownies

You know that excited feeling you get when you walk down the Christmas aisle and it’s Just. So. Sparkly. You just want to buy everything? (It can’t just be me who feels that way?)

3. I am a big fan of dipping things into chocolate.  See my Oreo Balls Recipe!  These are too cute and look so delicious!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Christmas Trees – Lovely Little Kitchen

Save Little Boy #1 found this cute little Chocolate Covered Strawberry Christmas Tree project in his Clubhouse magazine this month. He begged to make them, and even though I knew I would be cleaning ground up sprinkles out of the my kitchen tile grout until next Christmas, I gave in because, well…

4. These were a Christmas must have in our home. Carrying on the tradition….

Peanut Butter Blossoms

These simple peanut butter cookies topped with a Hershey’s kiss are a classic Christmas treat in many American households. This recipe comes from test kitchen director Farideh Sadeghin, who grew up making them each year with her mother and sister.

5. I have seen several variations of Magic Bars but check out these beauties! Can not wait to try them!

Update: They do not exaggerate when they use the word bliss! Love them!

Cranberry Bliss Seven Layer Bars – Averie Cooks

I love Cranberry Bliss Bars. Actually anything with white chocolate and cranberries I’m bound to like. And because I have a longstanding obsession with Seven Layer Bars or Magic Bars as they’re sometimes called, marrying two favorite bars into one had to happen.
