Christmas Goodies Round-Up


It’s Christmas time! My kids have been anxiously waiting for Christmas ever since Halloween ended. Needless to say it’s been a long wait, but the day is drawing near. Since the holiday season is upon us, so I’d like to share some of the Christmas goodies we’ve been enjoying.

Banana Chocolate-Chip Biscotti
This was my first attempt at making biscotti…ever! It was fun to make and it’s great to give as a gift because it keeps well. This recipe is also nut-free so that’s good if you’re looking for a gift for someone with a nut allergy. Tony and I have been enjoying it with coffee and Bailey’s- yum! I couldn’t really taste the bananas in it, but the chocolate chips were very tasty.

Peppermint Patties
These are my new favourites! I had a blast making them, and I couldn’t believe how easy and fast they were to make. I love peppermint patties but never thought about making my own until I saw this recipe on Pinterest. I think these will become a Christmas tradition in our house. I’m contemplating making a second batch since we’ve almost gone through all of them already.

Christmas-Tree Fruit Platter
I made this for Bennett’s preschool Christmas party and I’m making it again tomorrow for Cole’s kindergarten party. It’s a fun design for kids to enjoy and it’s healthy because of the fruit. Ok, the cookies aren’t healthy, but I needed something to hold the fruit in place so they wouldn’t roll around. The cookies you see here are Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies and White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread.

And here are some holiday recipes I posted last year that you may enjoy:

Rolo Cookies

Chocolate-Dipped Shortbread Meltaways

Spicy Cranberry Raisin Scones

Chocolate-Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Happy Holidays!
