One of the best ways to spread holiday cheer is though adorable Christmas sweets.
Craving something a little different this holiday season? We found some great Christmas dessert recipes featuring some of our favorite candy that we think will do the job. The following recipes won’t only wow your guests, but they won’t interrupt your busy holiday cooking and baking schedule.
Instead of simply throwing your bulk holiday candy into a bowl, why not take a few extra minutes and make something both adorable and unforgettable? These Candy Trains include all of your favorites; Hershey Kisses, Hershey’s Miniatures, Mini Reese’s, Life Savers, and small packs of bubblegum. They’ll make great treats for the young guests at your Christmas gathering, or even make great centerpieces or additions to place settings.
Warning! These Pretzel and M&M Hugs are seriously addicting. The sweet and salty treats only require three ingredients, M&M’s, Hershey Kisses, and pretzels. They make a great activity for the little ones, or a great last-minute addition to your holiday spread. Include just red and green M&M’s, or mix it up and make them super colorful. You can even use different types of Hershey Kisses to make the treat your own.
Peppermint bark is as much of a Christmas classic as candy canes. And although both are great enjoyed by themselves, the real magic happens when both treats are combined! Not only do these Peppermint Bark Candy Cane Hearts look great when displayed, but they can be easily packaged and given as gifts for all your friends and loved ones. All you have to do is stock up on mini candy canes, and then pick up some semi sweet chocolate chips (or white chocolate chips) the next time you stop by the grocery store.
Chocolate Dipped Candy Canes are great enjoyed on their own or when used as stirrers in hot cocoa or your favorite warm holiday drinks. Simply dip candy canes in your favorite melted chocolate for a simple and easy dessert. You can also crush up your other favorites like M&M’s or Butterfingers, and coat the warm chocolate in the mixture before the treats completely cool.
