twenty holiday treats ideas...

Snow cake

You probably already have most of your holiday decorating done and gifts bought. If you're anything like me all that's left now is wrapping a few more gifts and squeezing in a few more holiday treats! If you're in the mood for something chocolaty might I suggest this chocolate buttermilk cake
Peanut brittle
The holidays are THE time of year for peanut brittle—try this sweet and spicy kind.
Mini treats that double as gifts? Yes, please! Try these white chocolate and Nutella truffles
Cheesy apple pie
If you're in the mood to bake a pie might I suggest this Cheesy Apple Pie
Madeleine cookies
Making cookies for Santa? Try these classic Madeleine cookies.
Strawberry cheesecake
This is probably one of my very favorite cheesecake recipes. Yum! 
Bourbon apple pie
The holidays are the best time to bake with booze! Try this bourbon apple pie
Bundt cake
This red velvet swirl bundt cake is so easy to make, and delicious to eat!
Pomegranate donuts
I will be dreaming of these come Christmas morning: pomegranate glazed donuts.
Mint mocha frappe
these mint mocha frappes are decadent and oh-so delicious. I plan on enjoying all the peppermint I can this season! 
Peppermint hot cocoa
Speaking of peppermint, try this peppermint hot cocoa.
Peppermint marshmallows
Or if you want to fancy up a plain hot cocoa try making your own peppermint marshmallows. It's not as hard as you might think. 
Peppermint white russian
What about a peppermint white russian? Too much peppermint? Have you had enough yet? :)
Sweet tea hot toddy
I don't know about you but during these chilly winter months I don't mind a hot toddy. Don't mind it all. :)
Pumpkin cheesecake
If you're a pumpkin kind of gal you should totally try this pumpkin cheesecake martini
To me the holidays are all about the breakfasts. Of course there is Christmas morning breakfast, which is a big thing in our family. But there is also just leisurely breakfasts at home with out of town family or friends in for the holidays. If you're feeling adventurous you might try making Aebleskiver.
If you're wanting to make something ahead of time I would suggest giving homemade bagels a try (these are our favorite!).
Biscuits and gravy
Here in southern Missouri biscuits and gravy are a big deal. :) I like this vegetarian version for mushroom gravy. Yum! 
Sticky buns
If you're feeding a crowd you should totally try these peanut butter sticky buns.
French toast sticks
French toast is good, but french toast sticks are a party. Enjoy! xo.
