Christmas Dessert Round-Up

Looking through my dessert posts from last December makes me feel like I was trying to be an overachiever of sorts.

This December, no Christmas treats have been made.  I'm okay with that.  And so are my pants.

Or should I say, my shorts.  Because, friends, I'll be in shorts this weekend.  I better be anyway.  I tell you, we'll need to locate to the Equator after this Alaska stint.

Chocolate Peppermint Cake Pops.

Hershey Christmas Bark.

Cranberry Eggnog Cake Pops.

My favorite Christmas cookie:  Apricot Squares.

My favorite fudge:  Peppermint Fudge.

White Chocolate Chip Mocha Cookies.

Peppermint Brownies.

Salted Chocolate Walnut Fudge.

Soft Sugar Cookies.

Hershey's Kiss Cookies.

Oreo Peppermint Creams. (Oy.  You should make them.)

Eggnog Bread. (It tastes like a giant sugar cookie.)

Eggnog Snickerdoodles.  (Went a little eggnog-crazy back in twenty-ten.)


  1. All of these things look so good! I can't wait to try some! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Yep! Wearing shorts and flip flops while putting up christmas lights was a bit bizarre! Love the treat inspiration! I just might try our the peppermint fudge :)

  3. I haven't made anything either. HIGHLY unlike me, usually I've made a dozen different kinds of cookies, peppermint bark, gingerbread...all that by now.

  4. I won't be baking this Christmas either and it makes me really sad! Now that we know we won't be getting our HHG's until after Christmas it makes me even sadder.

  5. I WISH I could be wearing shorts. Instead I'll be wearing a rain jacket. Have fun down there! Enjoy your warm weather and bring some back up to the northwest when you come back! :)

  6. I love your peppermint goodies. And that eggnog bread!

  7. I hope you're taking pictures of all the food you're eating on your trip. Btw, J wants to cruise on his block leave, so we,ay be following you on that idea.
    These recipes look so insane. I may have make a few and use the excuse that J needs sweets when he returns.


Comments make my day!
