6 Super Easy-to-Make & Awesome Holiday Treats

With the holidays creeping around the corner, it’s safe to assume that you will be invited to many festive parties. Although part of the fun of attending said events is to devour supplied food, it can become daunting when you are expected to bring something tasty to eat. To avoid the unoriginal and easy solution of picking up a premade snack at the grocery store, try to get ~crafty~ and make your own delicious masterpieces instead. Here are five yummy recipes from some of our favourite foodie blogs for you to try. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!



Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies Treat Cookies

If you don’t like chocolate chip cookies, you probably never got a gift from Santa. A creative spin on the favourite eat of Saint Nick, this recipe brings two classic holiday snacks together (rice krispies squares + anything chocolate) in a perfectly melded round treat. Ho ho holla!

White Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Pretzels

What better way to spread the seasonal joy than with peppermint chocolate pretzels? With the surplus of candy-canes flooding every grocery store, it only makes sense to take advantage of these annual cavity creators and incorporate them into your recipes. This dessert is the perfect mix of salty sweet minty goodness.  So naughty, they’re nice.

Lavender, Chocolate and Olive Oil Tarts

Thanks to my mama always giving me lavender scented lotion for Christmas, this delightful shrub reminds me of the holidays. As it smells good enough to eat, it only makes sense that it is. This tasty tart recipe will ensure that you are the talk of the town all year round.

Dark Chocolate Bark with Dried Cherries and Walnut

Bark can be an overwhelming deliciously sweet treat, so using dark chocolate and adding some fruit and nuts can make the perfectly balanced dessert. This recipe makes up to 48 pieces meaning that you can get a little Scrooge-y and save some for yourself. I won’t tell.
