The holidays are already stressful enough without having to come up with creative and unique treats to feed your family and guests. Instead of using energy in experimenting in the kitchen, how about you just use this guide to find some festive Christmas and holiday treats that everyone at home is sure to love!
These are both adorable and fun to package. Make little cookies that look like pies and then put them in fun little boxes that make it look like a little pie. Ingenious!
I love Christmas colors and this is a great way to incorporate them into your food. Just dip the biscotti in white chocolate or fudge, spread some green and red sprinkles on it, and then enjoy!
These look almost too good to eat, don’t they!? You could decorate with these AND feed yourself and your guests. Put them in a beautiful container to make the presentation even better.

This name sounds good enough to eat, so the actual dessert must be delicious! It’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a great mixture of chocolate and peppermint that will leave you feeling satisfied.
I love this idea; it’s so cute! Make little snowball cookies and then present them in a fun way (like this wonderful winter landscape) for everyone to enjoy looking at and eating!

Eggnog is a classic Christmas staple, and now it can be in food form as well as drink! The fluffy and creamy cupcakes go so well with the eggnog flavor that you’ll be asking for more before you even finish.
