It's finally time for some serious holiday eating! We love this time of year, giving gifts of delicious treats and trying new recipes for those Christmas parties that we love to attend. Now is the time to get started trying out some new foods, and see which ones are going to be your favorites. Check out some of these delicious ideas: 

Peppermint Crunch Sugar Cookie Bars

Creamy, minty, crunchy and buttery. All these flavors in a decadent treat that is surprisingly easy to make. Nothing says Christmas like peppermint. We love these peppermint filled cookies that are cute as a button! 

Orange Sugared Cranberries

From A Family Feast

Cranberries have their 15 minutes of fame for at least two months of the year. This recipe highlights their tartness and although they are covered in sweet sugar, they still remain a mouth popping flavor treat. You are going to love these with a hint of citrus. 

Veggie Christmas Wreath

From Italian Chips

Not ever, single item has to be rich and decadent during the holidays. This is a healthy alternative that doesn't lose any of the festive colors. Make this ring of fresh veggies and cheese, to dip and enjoy at least one thing that doesn't contain butter. 

Jackson Pollock Peppermint Bark

From Grandbaby-Cakes

A quick and easy recipe that is heavenly. It's easy to make with fancy looking results, let your imagination go wild when decorating. This is one candy you may have a hard time parting with.

From It Bakes Me Happy

A classic recipe, these gingerbread cookies are a festive treat for all ages. Start a new family tradition, and make a few batches to nibble at home or give as gifts.
