A Christmas Sweets Round Up to help you with your holiday menu! Here are some of my favorite desserts that are ideal for serving at the end of your celebratory meal or to package up and give to friends and/or family as holiday gifts!
Have You Started Your Holiday Baking?
Have you baked up your holiday cookies? Planned your menu for Christmas, Christmas Eve, New Years? How about dessert? Well, today I’m guest posting for my busy friend, Brianne, who just moved into a new home and is a bit overwhelmed unpacking and getting her new house set for Christmas with two little ones in tow. Being a bit crazed myself, I hand picked some recipes which are ideal for the season. Whether used to cap off a big festive meal or to share at a cookie exchange, I hope my list will inspire you.
White Chocolate Frangelico Mousse: A nice alternative to the classic chocolate mousse. A slosh of Frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur, makes it even more special occasion worthy.
Double Dose Toffee : This candy starts with my standard English toffee recipe. I usually make 3 batches to give away to my friends and neighbors. Traditionally, I top with chopped pecans, but this recipe shakes it up and uses chopped Heath bars for a double dose!
Cranberry White Chocolate and Crystallized Ginger Cookies: One of my favorite new cookies. It’s a rare case where I use both shortening and butter in a cookie, but the resulting texture is divine. Plus the hit from the crystallized ginger is extraordinary.
Chocolate Terrine with Raspberry Sauce: An elegant no-bake recipe. Perfect when your oven is busy with a turkey or roast beast.
Mounds Brownie Cupcakes: As a coconut lover, I just have to have something coconut in the mix. The surprise filling will please the coconut fans in your life.
Chocolate Mousse Torte: A terrific chocolate dessert. Cut it into slivers and top with sweetened whipped cream and berries for an elegant dessert.
Triple Ginger Cookies: An even more ginger laden cookie than my traditional recipe for chewy gingersnaps. The combination of ground ginger, crystallized ginger and fresh ginger will make you swoon.
Holiday Truffle Cookies: A festive fudgy cookie that you can shake up with any colored M & M’s you’d like.
