Loosen your waist band, the Christmas eat-a-thon is about to get serious! We’ve rounded up 10 delicious festive treats that are a feast for the eyes as well as your taste buds.
1. Peppermint snowballs
2. Glass window biscuits
The ‘windows’ in these cookies are made by melting boiled lollies in the star-shaped cut outs. Get the recipe from taste.com.au.
3. Ice cream cone cupcakes
4. Peppermint meringue cups
5. Santa in the snow
Most of these professional cupcakes by Sugar Siren might be out of our baking league, but we reckon ‘Santa in the snow’ is achievable! Fluffy whipped icing, edible glitter and rolled fondant legs ought to do the trick. Take a closer look here.
6. Red velvet pancakes
7. Pretzel snacks
For this no-cook recipe from House On Hilltop, place Hershey’s kisses inside round pretzels, melt them slightly in the oven and press M&Ms inside. Easy salty-sweet goodness! Get the instructions here.
8. Santa bread
Why pass round boring bread rolls at Christmas dinner when you could bite off a piece of Santa’s beard instead? Get the recipe from Taste of Home.
9. Peppermint stick cocoa
This easy cocoa kit is a great homemade gift. See how to make it at My Recipes.
10. Strawberry santas
Use whipped cream, cream cheese or icing to create these cute little Santa desserts! Seen over at Leanne Bakes.
