Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without some baking, but, you have a to do list that just keeps growing and spending time in the kitchen just doesn’t seem to fit in your schedule. Chances are you are wanting to spend time with family and friends so why not invite a group of people over and have a day of baking?!
Crank the Christmas tunes, light the fire and roll up your sleeves. Baking can be fun for the whole group. Below are a few of my favourites must have treats to have around during the holidays.
Whipped Shortbread is an easy 3 ingredient recipe. This cookie is delicate and buttery and melts in your mouth. It also freezes great so I encourage you to make multiple batches, although I guarantee they’ll never make it to the freezer!
Candy Cane Bark is a no bake treat that is sure to delight and just screams holiday.
Loaded Chocolate Chip Cookies. These can be made a little more festive by simply swapping the chocolate chips for holiday coloured M&Ms.
Holiday Cake Batter Rice Krispies Squares are always a hit for the younger crowd. For an added touch grab some Christmas cookie cutters to cut the Rice Krispies into festive shapes.
Remember to tell your guests to bring some to-go containers so they don’t leave empty handed!
From my kitchen to yours, happy baking and Merry Christmas!
