15 Yummy Christmas Treat Recipes

I don't know about you but Christmas treats are my favorite treats. Thank goodness there are so many of them to choose from! I put together this list of Christmas treats so we can all indulge together. Mmm. Honestly, I don't know if I can pick my favorite because they all look amazing.

In my family, we don't have a particular treat that gets made each year. Although, my husband does love fudge. If it were up to me I'd make frosted sugar cookies a whole bunch. I didn't include a recipe for those here because honestly, it seems like everyone has a favorite sugar cookie recipe. Please click on any photo to get to the original site for the recipe!

So, are you drooling yet? I tried to include some traditional cookies (to me) and some that I had never seen before. My friend and I were talking about Rice Krispie treats the other day. They are her favorite and I can't remember the last time I tried to make them. So, I think first up on my list of treats to try is the Reindeer Rice Krispies. They are so stinkin' cute and I bet they taste delicious too. What is the first thing you will be making? Oh and don't forget to go and leave love for the people who originally shared these!
