Creative and Imaginative Recipes for Christmas!

Pin It
With Halloween barely over with, it's already beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  All of the stores are already replacing the candy and costumes with Christmas treats and wrapping paper, and sending out flyers filled with toys and gift ideas.

I guess there's no denying it, the holiday season is upon us.  Christmas parties will abound, and baking will begin.  Millions of cookies will be baked, as well as other yummy treats.

If you're looking for creative ways to wow your guests or your colleagues at the up-coming office party, here are some fun, unique recipes that will brighten up any buffet table.

Megan, from shares this wonderful recipe for melted snowman cookies that is sure to delight kids of all ages...

I love the way she gave every snowman a different expression, it really makes them come alive!
Complete instructions can be found here, and I think you could probably make him a top hat, using a mini marshmellow dipped in chocolate on top on a chocolate melt.

These Christmas tree cupcakes, brought to us by look great and are easy enough to achieve.  The kids can help out, and as a bonus, they will be thrilled by the amount of frosting on them!!!

These reindeer cupcakes are very cute, also from, and easy enough that your children can help .  If you don't want to mess with the melted chocolate, you could easily replace the piped antlers by using pretzels instead!  The website actually has many fun christmas baking ideas, check it out if you're looking for more!

This cookie Christmas Tree looks to darn good to eat!  I think the most complicated part of the recipe is drawing out your twelve circles with a compass on the parchment and having to cut them out.  I think this is well worth the effort, when you consider the wow effect this will have as a centre piece, not to mention the props you'll get!
Recipe Instructions
The great thing about cookies and other baked goods is that they make a great inexpensive gift.  All you need is a pretty basket from the dollar store, some cellophane and a little ribbon, and you can make a beautiful creation.  Consider adding a candy cane or a small ornament  as you're tying your ribbon.  It will look great, and people will really appreciate the time and effort that went in to the gift.

Happy Baking, and have a Merry Christmas!!!

Much Love, 

PS:  I'd love to see pics of your attempts!  Send them to me by email, I'll add them to the bottom of this post!
