Normally by the week before Christmas I have a bulging freezer full of holiday treats I’ve made to give away (and sample), but for some strange reason I’m not getting into it this year. I was making my grocery list for Christmas Day and I couldn’t come up with a single thing that I wanted for dessert. If you know me, you would probably tell me to go to the emergency room or something, because obviously something’s really wrong. Right?
So to try to get myself in the baking mood I pulled up a list of super-delicious treats that would be perfect for gifting this time of year. Some I’ve tried and some are on the list, but I think I’d be happy to receive any of them. (Hint, hint.) Enjoy.
Snickers Fudge – this is by far the most visited recipe I’ve ever posted. It really is pretty amazing.
Moose Munch – This looks delish and the packaging is so cute, too!
Cherry and Dark Chocolate Fudge – Oh my word, this looks divine.
Almond Roca – I made this last year for my dad and it was soooo good. It’s not as intimidating as most recipes make it sound, but it does take a while to make.
Peppermint Mocha Fudge – This sounds amazing to me, but Jerm hates mint/chocolate combos so I can’t ever make this unless I want to eat it all by myself. So I’m waiting for someone to make some and share it with me. 😉
Monster Cookie Dough Truffles – I’m not a fan of raw cookies, but I know a lot of people who are. I think these would be especially fun for kids.
Homemade Twix Bars – ooooh….aaaaahhhh.
Fudgy Sandwich Cookies with Peppermint Creme Filling – Let me tell ya, these are good. Realllly good.
Peppermint Bark Snowflakes – these are so pretty, and I even have the silicone mold for them.
Coconut Bonbons – I got this recipe from my sister-in-law and make them every year. (Except this year, thanks to my strange, uncaring attitude.) They’re insanely rich so be sure to share with someone if you make these.
So what holiday treats are you making this year? Giving any away as gifts? I’d love to hear.
