Need some holiday treats? I’ve got a lot of great options for you!
I love baking all year but especially during the holidays. My first thought when having someone over during the holidays or when I’m invited to someone’s home is “what can I bake?”
I started baking when I was only two years old. My grandmother taught me to bake. I spent a lot of hours standing on her vintage red stool pouring ingredients into bowls and making tasty treats.
Holiday treats are so fun to make, and eat! Some people are excited when pumpkin spice everything starts but for me it’s peppermint! This is my time of the year. Peppermint hot chocolate, peppermint cookies, peppermint brownies, peppermint candies, I love it all.
There are so many options out there it can be a bit overwhelming to choose. To help make it a bit easier I have looked all over Pinterest and Yummly to find fun and delicious options. They are perfect for parties, Christmas dinner, gifts, or just a Friday night at home with a Christmas movie.
