I was looking for a recipe the other day, and realized that I have quite a few sweet treat Christmas recipes(and also that I must really like Amaretto because it’s included in several of these recipes!) All of the recipes are easy to make….some require no baking. There are even some adults-only drinks that are always hits!
Christmas Recipes: Mommy of a Monster’s Sweet Treat Round Up
This is one of my all time favorite Christmas recipes! These Amaretto Truffles are so easy to make and can be served as a dessert or given as a gift.
The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
With a fancy name like Browned Butter and Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies, you might be thinking these cookies are too gourmet for kids…but they aren’t fancy at all. Tip: Double the recipe because these cookies go FAST!
Cream Cheese Mints
If you like minty, you’ll love these Cream Cheese Mints. No baking required and just a few ingredients. And this recipe holds a special place in my heart because making them reminds me of being a kid and making them with my aunt.
This recipe for Candy Popcorn is perfect for gatherings because it’s quick, easy, and inexpensive to make. And it makes a lot!
My niece gave me the idea for these Perfectly Imperfect Peppermint Truffles!
Nothing tells someone how much you care about them more than a homemade gift. This Amaretto Biscotti recipe fits the bill!
Butter Cookies with Jelly are simple to make, and the kids love filling in the jelly. I give each of the kids a different jelly flavor and put them to work!
Adults-Only Christmas Recipes
All of these Adults-Only Christmas Recipes include alcohol, so keep the kids away from these treats! Whether you are having brunch, going to a holiday party, or sipping an after dinner drink, these are all great recipes to try.
I get asked for this Cranberry Mimosa recipe every time I make it!
If you are looking to add some oomph to a regular mimosa, this Amaretto Mimosa does just that.
For A Holiday Party…
Candy Cane Vodka
Did you know that you can dissolve candy canes in vodka and get peppermint vodka? It’s simple to make Candy Cane Vodka. You just need to make it a day or so before you plan on drinking it. Make a holiday martini, a boozy, minty milkshake, add it to coffee, or just shoot it!
Chocolate Pudding Shots
Make these Chocolate Pudding Shots with my Candy Cane Vodka instead of regular vodka for a peppermint kick!
For After Dinner (Or A Long Day)…
Adults Only Coffee
This Adults Only Coffee recipe will warm you up and calm you down. It may sound like a lot of alcohol for a cup of coffee, but you can barely taste it (and it’s less than a shot.)
So there you go! My favorite sweet treats Christmas recipes. Whether you are serving dessert, making them for gifts, or just wanting to try a new recipe, there’s something here for everybody. And if you are looking for more Christmas ideas, check out my board All About Christmas on Pinterest.
