The holidays are the time to make delicious food to share with loved ones. It’s also a time for baking and sharing loads of decadent sweets. Here are some amazing Christmas recipes I have found—all of them involving sugar and many including my beloved friends: mint and peppermint.
The Best Pumpkin Gingerbread Cake Ever
Why not start out with a self-proclaimed Best Cake Ever? Usually when I think of gingerbread, I think of little gingerbread men and women with gumdrop buttons, but this cake is something I think I could get used to.
Candy Cane Kiss Cookies
I have also heard of these cookies referred to as “candy cane blossoms.” Whatever you call them, they sure are festive!
Have you ever made your own marshmallows? I sure haven’t! This recipe bumps it up a notch with the peppermint swirls.
Colorful Swirl Cookies
I have wanted to make swirl cookies for the longest time. You simply roll them up, store them in the freezer and slice them off whenever you are ready to bake!
Candy Cane Marshmallow Pops
This is such a simple idea, but it really turns out looking fancy. These candy cane marshmallow pops would be great as a holiday gift.
Candy Cane White Chocolate Mousse
Here we are again with the candy cane theme! This time the Christmas recipe takes form in a creamy mousse. Bonus points have been added for the delicious photography and use of mason jars.
Red Velvet Cake Cookies
This is a super easy recipe to make since you start with a cake mix! Thus the “cake cookies” in the title.
This wonderfully creative Christmas recipe uses cornflakes to create the look of a wreath and red cinnamon candies for the berries.
Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies
Well hello, decadence! Not only do we have chocolate and ooey-gooey mint crème in the middle, we also have crunchy candy canes for texture and an added kick of peppermint. I told you mint and peppermint were my friends, right?
Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer Christmas Cake
I simply had to include this in the Christmas recipe round-up. Not only does it look delicious, but it is simply adorable.
