1. Chocolate-Dipped Oreo Snowflakes

‘Tis the season to be making (and eating! oh my goodness, the eating!) treats to share with family and friends. The kids loved these Chocolate Dipped Oreo Snowflake cookies – not only did they love help making them, but as we were in the kitchen together, they talked about who they would like to gift some to.

These Christmas Swirl Sugar Cookies are delicious and although they look rather impressive (insert pat on the back here) they are actually really simple.

5. Christmas Oreo Balls

“Bark” is an artificial chocolate or vanilla candy coating/confectioner’s coating used to make a treat called almond bark and can be found at most grocery stores near the chocolate chips. You can use chocolate chips and white chocolate chips if you don’t have almond bark, but I have found that almond bark melts better and is easier to work with.

These are the cutest and tastiest little no-bake treats! Not only are they an absolute cinch to make, they can be made in 20-30 minutes without having to turn on the oven! You can make these well in advance if you know you’re going to be short on time and they last up to 2 weeks in the fridge. Oh, and did I mention they taste just like CAKE BATTER? Yeah, it’s seriously tasty stuff. Plus super festive. Love those red and green sprinkles!! My daughter tried to sneak into the fridge and steal these even! That’s saying something.

17. Peppermint Bark

An unbelievably easy, no-fuss, Christmas peppermint bark recipe.

18. Chocolate Raspberry Cake

This chocolate raspberry cake is really simple to put together, and the design on top is even easier. I whisked my mascarpone frosting for longer than usual until it started getting slightly clumpy and curdled.

I did this in an effort to achieve the look of powdered snow, and the result, I would say, was very successful. I also made sure to go easy on frosting the sides of this chocolate raspberry cake to appeal to the rustic, natural look of the cake.

23. Chex Mix Christmas Crack

There is nothing more delicious to me that a sweet and salty mix. It is my downfall on my diet. Bad news for those of you with the same downfall because this Chex Mix Christmas Crack is just as the name suggests – highly addictive and absolutely no good for your diet.

From: PrincessPinkyGirl

24. Christmas Vanilla Roll Cake


The secret to the creamy buttercream is to whip the butter first before adding the powder sugar to it and whip on medium speed for 2 minutes once all the sugar is incorporated. Doing so, you’ll have a light buttercream way better than the store-bought ones.

25. Cake batter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies are a cross between delicious, soft-baked chocolate chip cookies and sprinkle filled funfetti cake!

Made with dry cereal and a peanut butter mixture, it’s part-healthy, part-sweet, and 100% fun. It’s a great edible craft for the kids to make this winter when the snow arrives and cabin fever sets in. No baking required—just mix and assemble.
