Hello everyone! There are just 3 more days until Christmas and I am so so so excited! Continuing in our Christmas series, today I’d like to share with you some delicious Christmas themed desserts. Hope you enjoy!
First on the list are these super cute Christmas tree brownies!! I mean, come on, how adorable are they? So to kick things off, you will need to…
Step 1: Head to the store and grab some regular brownie mix and a tub of icing.
Step 2: Bake the brownies according to the package directions and allow them to cool completely.
Step 3: Cut your brownies into triangles. This might be a little confusing, so you could use a cookie cutter or skewers.
Step 4: Empty the icing into a bowl and add green food coloring (continue to add drops until you get your desired color.)
Step 5: Put the icing into a plastic bag and cut the corner of the bag off.
Step 6: Gently squeeze the icing out of the bag, moving in a zig-zag direction.
Step 7: Add your favorite sprinkles and a star at the top!
Step 8: Now, if you so desire, you can stop at step 7, as the trees are totally adorable just by themselves. However; you can add a little tree trunk by inserted a peppermint stick at the bottom of your tree!
Next are these delicious Christmas Rice Krispy Treat Bites. Rice Krispy Treats are good year ’round, and one of my favorite things to do is take one of my favorite desserts and add a Christmas touch to it! So let’s get started!
Step 1: Begin by mixing 3 batches of Rice Krispy Treat mixture in red, green, and white. Be sure to add the food coloring to your melted marshmallow mixture before adding the Rice Krispy treats.
Step 2: While the Rice Krispy Treat mixture is cooking, add your favorite Christmas sprinkles.
Step 3: While the mixture is still warm, grab a spoonful and roll it into a bite-sized ball.
Step 4: Enjoy your super festive Rice Krispy Treat Bites!
Up next are these super yummy candy cane cookies. This recipe is sure to become a family-favorite that creates sweet holidays memories! Not only are these some of the cutest cookies you will ever eat, they also taste amazing! So let’s begin!
Step 1: Head to the store and pick up one to two rolls of cookie dough depending on how many cookie you want to make.
Step 2: Cut your roll of cookie dough in half, coloring one side of the dough with red food coloring (gel food coloring works great.)
Step 3: Pinch off a dime sized piece of both colors and roll them into what I like to call “snakes” (or long, skinny rolls, but that’s just boring!) Then roll both pieces lightly together.
Step 4: Lightly pinching the ends, slowly twist one end forward, and the other end backward to make it striped like a candy cane.
Step 5: Form a hooked candy cane handle.
Step 6: Bake for approximately 9 minutes.
Step 7: Once you take the cookies out of the oven, sprinkle sugar on the top of each candy cane.
Step 8: Let the cookies cool and enjoy!
To end this blog on Christmas desserts, I will tell you how to make these lovely Christmas hugs! If you’re anything like me, you like everything tiny! It really doesn’t get much better than the sweet and salty taste of these bite sized treats! First thing’s first.
Step 1: Align your pretzels on a cookie sheet.
Step 2: Place a Hershey’s Hug chocolate on top of each pretzel and bake in a preheated oven for 4-5 minutes (until the chocolate is shiny and soft but NOT melted. The chocolate should still hold its shape.)
Step 3: Carefully place a red or green M&M on top of each pretzel and press down to spread the chocolate
Step 4: Place the pretzels in the refrigeration for 4-5 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.
Step 5: Wait, there is no step 5! That’s right! These delicious treats are really that simple to make!
I should inform you that these are not my recipes, and I applaud the people who put the time and effort into perfecting each and every recipe!
