Holiday Treats

It may have actually been October 9th when I wrote this post. I may or may not but definitely was craving the holiday yumminess that begins around December 1st so I decided to write WAYYY in advance the awesome list for December. Thirty-one amazing holiday recipes and treats that I'm pretty sure I'll have already started by the time this post rolls around. Don't judge me - I had a baby in my belly directing me towards all things sweet. So really, this is HIS awesome list post. Man, not even born yet and he's already a blogger. Talk about making his mama proud.

Salted Chocolate-Pecan Toffee Recipe

Triple Chocolate-Covered Peanut Clusters Recipe
....Although I'm pretty sure I'll be making them with cashews instead.

Sugared Cranberries Recipe
Say whaaat??

Butterscotch Caramels
Caramels have been the bane of my cooking existence for quite some time now. This year that will end. I am determined.

Peppermint Cupcakes
5 - {Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes}

Apparently, the best Christmas cookie ever.  Cookie exchange girls raved!
6 - {White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread}
Apparently the best Christmas cookies ever. Which means I have no choice but to make them.

O.M.G  - Something tells me I'm going to try this come December...
7 - {Christmas Tree Cake}
Although after the epic fail of my 4th of July cake there is no way I'll be putting the ornament inside. I think a simple red velvet will suffice.

35 Luscious Homemade Food Gifts
8 - {Homemade Marshmallows}

9 - {Ginger Cookies}
These had better be super soft and chewy. Or else you'l be on my list, Ina.

yum- christmas baking?

Since one salted caramel shortbread recipe isn't enough.

Chocolate, Hazelnut, and Caramel Thumbprint Cookies
17 - {Chocolate Hazelnut & Caramel Thumbprint Cookies}
Like a caramel loaded Ferrero Rocher - which are always found in my stocking each Christmas morning.

Pistachio and White Chocolate Mousse Tartlets
18 - {Pistachio & White Chocolate Mousse Tartlets}
I make these every year because they are AMAZING.

Cinnamon Wreath Bread
19 - {Cinnamon Roll Wreath}
It's not Christmas morning without cinnamon rolls and although I usually prefer my cinnamon rolls right from the center of the pan for the ultimate gooeyness, the wreath is so festive I can't resist.

Is the Andes at the end of the meal anyone else's favorite part of going to Olive Garden? Well, besides the house salad. And bread sticks. And alfredo sauce. Hmm, I guess I know where I'm going for dinner.
