Friday Favorites: Christmas Treats

Happy Friday!!!  After having a few busy weekends in a row, I'm looking forward to a productive and relaxing weekend.  I'm pretty excited that Christmas is coming up, but time is running out for me to get everything ready.  I still have some decorations to put up, shopping to do, and all of the presents to wrap.  I also need to do some baking, so today I'm sharing five yummy treats on my "to make" list this Christmas.

ONE.  How cute are these Candy Cane Hearts from One Little Project At A Time? And they seem pretty easy to make too.

TWO.  I made these Peppermint Chocolate Cookies from Two Twenty One last year and they are AMAZING!  I'll definitely be making them again this year.

THREE. I have seen these all over Pinterest, and I think they are super cute and healthy option for Christmas.  I'm thinking about making them to bring as a snack for some holiday parties.
How cute is this! Grapes, Bananas, Strawberries, and Marshmallows :)

FOUR. This Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn Munch from Yellow Brick Road looks addictive and delicious.

FIVE.  I will be consuming lots of hot chocolate this winter and these giant Peppermint Marshmallows from Barns and Noodles will be the perfect addition.  And maybe some kahlua ;)

So this list really shows that I love peppermint, but it's just so good.  My husband doesn't really like peppermint, which means more for me!

What are your favorite treats to make this holiday season?

Linking up with Momfessionals for Friday Favorites!


  1. Yum! So many of these treats look amazing! I may have to try some out this weekend; thanks for sharing!

  2. Those all look delicious! I always bake a bunch of treats as presents for my boyfriend's family. Dipped pretzel rods always seem to be the favorite, although last year saltine toffee was a huge hit. I ate like half a tray myself! haha!

  3. Oooh that popcorn munch looks soooo good!! I love the chocolate and popcorn /sweet and salty combination. I also really love those santa hat fruit snacks!

  4. The heart lollipops are just so cute! Great ideas!

    xo Always, Abby

  5. I really want to make those chocolate peppermint marshmallows! I drink hot chocolate every night, and they would just up the delicious factor :)

  6. I'm pretty sure I need to exit blogland during the holiday season due to all the delicious recipes everyone keeps posting! :) Everything looks and sounds amazing that you shared!
