Holiday Treats – Recipe Roundup

Holiday baking is my thing. I absolutely love it. From measuring all the flour to the enticing smells of the holiday treats in the oven. I also love making little kits for others to make their own holiday treats. Check out some mixes I made as gifts last year:

Red velvet not your thing (gasp!), that’s OK. Here’s a classic sugar cookie with a twist. How cute would these be in a gift basket?

I don’t know what’s a staple at your family holiday meal, but my family loves a good rum cake. I’ve seen versions using pound cake (you can find one on our Pinterest board), but I personally love chocolate rum cake.

Naughty & Nice Mint Mousse Brownies

The description on the blog says: Moist and fudgy dark chocolate brownies, topped with a minty, fluffy cloud of mousse and studded with cookie crumbles (naughty) & candy canes (nice)! How could you not want to make these?! I’m tempted to try to bite my computer screen right now.

Brown Sugar Pecan Cookies
