Festive Holiday Desserts

December 18, 2012

Thanks to the world of food blogs and Pinterest, it isn’t too hard to find creative and beautiful confections conducive to jolly holiday parties. I’ve collected my favorites below:

Snowflake Cupcakes


Make your traditional chocolate and white frosting dessert wintery using this simple recipe. Sprinkles and patience are all you need!

Peppermint Cake Pops

Krazy Coupon Lady

The Krazy Coupon Lady guest writer Jody wrote her own take on this Starbucks favorite. Cake pops are easy on the eyes and palate, and it’s cheaper (and more fun) to make them yourself!

Cinnamon Roll Cake


I love cinnamon rolls. I also love cake. So discovering this recipe was a present sent from baking Heaven. (Original recipe from Life as a Lofthouse.)

Snowball Cookies


 My grandmother’s next-door-neighbor loved to bake. Every year we would get a large tin can full of her favorite baked goods, from chocolate chip cookies to peppermint goodies… and the “Snowball” cookie was one of my favorites! This easy-to-make dessert is well worth the powdered sugar mess!

Bourbon Baked Apples


Healthy decadence… okay that’s a bit of an oxymoron. But this sweet treat does have fruit and nuts in it! Check out the details of this simple but utterly delightful recipe here.
