Christmas Sweets


Our Christmas tree is officially up, and I am busy adding some holiday touches to our home. What an exciting season! Yesterday, I was daydreaming about some of the Christmas treats that I've made in the past few years. I browsed through old posts last night, and I compiled a few of my favorite desserts that must be repeated this year :)  I'm sure a few of them will catch your eye, and you'll have to jot down the ingredients on your grocery list!

Before we look at these sweets, I want to remind you that tomorrow, Astleigh and I are hosting the Every Girl Link-Up! This time, it's all about CHRISTMAS DECOR! Feel free to join us!

The Chocolate Christmas Mice were such a hit last year after our church's Christmas program. I think I'll have to make them again and start a tradition!


Peppermint is one of the most delicious Christmasy flavors, and this Peppermint Oreo Ice Cream Cake with its top layer of hot fudge does NOT disappoint!


My kids love these green Cornflake and Marshmallow Wreaths! (Think Rice Krispie Treat taste). So festive!


 It's no surprise that my absolute favorite pie is chocolate pie. French Silk is so nostalgic for me around Thanksgiving and Christmastime.


I've heard this called "Christmas Crack" in the past because it is so addicting, and you can make this with saltines, graham crackers, or pretzels. All versions are amazing and extremely easy!

There's nothing better than some hot cocoa after playing in the snow or when cuddling up to a Christmas movie. This mint version is very rich and indulgent.


Trifles are such an easy dessert to bring to a potluck or big gathering. Raspberry? Mocha? Mmm! What could go wrong with this one? :)  Click here for recipe.



Everyone loves Christmas Fudge on a big cookie platter!


And if you have company over the holidays, channel your inner Paula Deen by making this Baked French Toast with Praline Glaze. It's a show stopper!


This is Shay's (Mix and Match Mama) photo of her Vanilla Bean Noel Bundt Cake. A few years ago, I  tried thirty of her bundt cake recipes, including holiday favorites like Eggnog and Cranberry Orange. If you have a bundt pan, you need to try one of these!





Again, snap some photos around your house and link up with us tomorrow for our Christmas decor link-up!
