Having some festive recipes on hand for Christmas is always a fun way to celebrate the holiday. In the morning we always have our signature breakfast, but each year look for a new recipe to add and then midday there is always those few open hours where a small lull sets in before Christmas dinner and dessert. We like to spend these lulls by preparing last minute treats and drinks to enjoy as our family gathers around and takes in this festive holiday. Here are some of our favorite recipes and new ones were anxious to try.
It’s hard to beat a great cup of hot cocoa, and it’s hard to beat a great cupcake. But combining the two is pure heaven. Adding marshmallow crème icing and mini marshmallows are the key to these treats standing out on the dessert table at your next party.
My family loves anything peppermint flavored this time of year. I decided to make a white hot chocolate and flavor it with crushed candy canes. This Slow Cooker Candy Cane Hot Chocolate would be perfect for any evening in December or for Christmas morning. Do plan ahead with this recipe. It takes the slow cooker about 1.5 hours to heat up this cocoa.
Do you have Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Little Debbie Swiss Rolls, candy canes, Sixlets, candy eyeballs and pretzel sticks in your pantry? I’m kind of embarrassed to admit, but really happy that I actually had all of those items in my kitchen! I couldn’t resist temptation... ignored my “to do” list and made Peanut Butter Cup and Swiss Roll Reindeer for you...
This Eggnog French Toast makes for the perfect holiday breakfast. Not only does it taste truly delicious but, just little other french toast recipes, it is unbelievably easy to make. It only requires 5 ingredients!
This is a fun easy project to do with your kids and doesn’t leave the whole kitchen a mess. Give it a try!
What says Christmas morning more than a reindeer pancake to kick start your holiday and sugar rush?
