In my world, sugar and sweets rule. And now that it’s December, now is a time for candy canes, sugar cookies, fudge and chocolate Santas! One of my family’s favorite Christmas traditions is to spend an entire day baking Christmas treats. My mom would bake one tray of sugar cookies for me, my sister and my brother. We would mix up some sugar icing and create designs on different Christmas shaped cookies. There were Santas, Christmas trees, stars, angels and an ‘initial’ cookie for each of us (a C, K, and T). The cookies always looked cute (and I always ended up eating a lot) hah!
If you’re looking for cute and healthy food options for this time of year (so you can celebrate Christmas and still look and feel great for New Years yay!) I’ve got you covered! Whip up one of these treats for your next ugly sweater party, office party or just to have for yourself!
How festive is this pinecone inspired dish?
I love that everything on this tree is edible (even the base!)
Grinch Grape Kabobs
The perfect snack!
How cute would an army of these snowman sandwiches look?
Switch up the toppings to create ‘ornaments’ or ‘lights’ for these trees!
What other word could you spell out? (I would spell out noel!)
Because you need a little chocolate in your life!
I’m going to try the Grinch Kabobs this year! Do you have a favorite holiday recipe?
