10 Easy Christmas Treats to Make for Family and Friends
These Chocolate Peanut Butter Sugar Cookies have become a favorite around here. Especially for the husband and youngest daughter!
They taste like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup made into a cookie…with sprinkles and a drizzle of vanilla glaze.
Because it’s fancy.
And it’s Christmas.
Snowman Cupcakes from Emily Enchanted
Everyone knows how much I love snowmen, so you had to know there would be at least 1 on here!
These adorable snowman cupcakes from Emily Enchanted are the perfect Christmas treat for a party!
And if you wanted to get really fancy, you could even make him hat out of fondant!
Ice Cream is my biggest downfall and I’ll eat it whenever it’s available.
I will eat it in a house…I will eat it with a mouse…
Seriously! I’m like a little kid.
And this Christmas Cookie Ice Cream from Simply Shellie would be no exception.
In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s going to find it’s way to my freezer…
Maybe in July…
I used this Easy Microwave Peanut Butter Fudge recipe from InstruPix to bring to a party last year and EVERYONE loved it.
It’s so easy to make and requires just 3 ingredients – peanut butter, butter and confectioners sugar. You can add vanilla, if you like or use maple extract to make “Maple Peanut Butter Fudge” instead.
That’s what I did…cause you know I love my maple!
These No Bake Peppermint White Chocolate Cheesecakes from Cooking Classy are exactly that…classy! And they’re perfect for serving at a “grown-up” Christmas party!
P.S. I don’t think you can beat serving them in these adorable little dessert shot glasses, like she did, either!
Who doesn’t love a York Peppermint Patty? I know I do and so does my family. But, these homemade Peppermint Patties from The Gunny Sack look just as good!
And that sprinkle of crushed peppermint candy on top just does a little something extra for the holidays, doesn’t it?!
These Orange Oatmeal Spice Cookies are a family favorite around here and honestly, they are one that is almost always included in our treat boxes.
Everyone that tries them loves them and you’ll love them, too, because not only are they delicious, but they are so simple to make!
Love Buckeye balls? Take them up a notch by using white chocolate to make these Peanut Butter Snowballs from The Foodie Affair.
They’re adorable, fitting for the season and they taste sooo good!
My husband LOVES those chocolate cherries that you buy in the box at Christmas time. But for the last few years, it seems the cherries have gotten smaller and smaller.
Have you noticed, too?
This year, let’s try making these Chocolate Covered Cherries from Cincy Shopper instead!
I’m sure they’re much bigger and probably a whole lot better, too!
Old-Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls with Vanilla Orange Glaze
Ahhh…last, but certainly not least are our family favorite…Old-Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls with Vanilla Orange Glaze.
We make these for breakfast each year, but it’s an easy Christmas treat recipe that you can make for any meal of the day…
