Get Inspired: 10 Yummy Holiday Recipes

I just can’t seem to help myself. Something about this time of year just wants to make my waistband expand and my brain to say “aw heck, you can wait to start that diet until January”. So after scouring Pinterest and the web for some new cookie, cake and treat recipes for the holiday season, I decided to share some of my favorites with you today!

Candy Cane Dip from The 36th Avenue


Peppermint Popcorn Bark from Plain Chicken


Christmas Coal Treats from Big Red Kitchen


Santa Hat Party Mix from Cookies and Cups


Red Velvet Christmas Cheesecake from Restless Chipotle


Stained Glass Cookies from The Daily Dish


Reindeer Corn Cookie Bark from The Homebased Mom


Mint Oreo Truffles from Amandeleine


Melting Snowman Cookies from Sprinkles and Grins


Christmas Tree Cupcakes from Twin Dragonfly Designs


Nothing here is too difficult to make; trust me, my baking skills are weak!
