Cookies, cakes, cakepops, hot chocolates, pies, and snack mixes are all over Pinterest right now and it's making me drool. So many yummy things to bake and I haven't even started yet!!!
Last year was probably the first year that I did a lot of adulty-ish, Christmas-y things- including Christmas baking. Every year prior, I said I would do #allthethings I wanted to do, yet they often went undone. Last Christmas, I made multiple Christmas recipes and was really proud of myself.
But alas! This year the only thing I've made so far is cake pops, and they aren't very Christmas-y.
With so much to do around the holidays, it makes complete sense. It's tough finding a balance between getting everything done and staying sane. I am certainly not going to stress myself out over unbaked cookies, but there are several things I would really like to make before the holidays are over.
And since it's not only difficult to find time to bake, but also hard to decide what to bake, I have put together one giant list of holiday sweets and treats you may want to make this Christmas. Who knows, you may even find your new favorite recipe!
