Easy Holiday Treats - main image

It’s December 9th…which means that Christmas is just two weeks away! To help get you in the holiday spirit, we’ve already discussed 20 Easy DIY Gift Ideas, Creative Elf on the Shelf Ideas, our Favorite Tunes for Your Holiday Playlist, and even our Favorite Holiday Movies…so now it’s time for some holiday-themed food ideas.

With the holiday season in full swing, many of us are in the kitchen trying to whip up scrumptious holiday treats to share with our friends and family. From “Snack with Santa” at my son’s school to holiday potlucks at the office, to cookie exchange parties, I quickly found myself in need of some scrumptious holiday treats to share with our friends and family.

So, as a Christmas fanatic and lover of any kind of cute food concoction, I put together a roundup of some simple (and sweet!) treats to make for the holidays. The following ideas are easy to make…with some just beyond irresistible in their resemblance to Rudoloph, Frosty, or Santa himself.

Are you ready for an overdose of sweetness?
