Are you ready for Christmas? If not - y ou better get ready! Today I'm sharing Christmas Desserts, Candy and Treats (and a Candy Cane Craft!!)!
Today I wanted to share a few pictures of some of the Christmas desserts and treats I've been busy baking the past few weeks. Maybe you'll find something you want to make.
First... up top there is some dark chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting and Christmas sprinkles. Nothing too fancy and anybody can do these, but very rich and delicious! Use a Wilton 1M tip to get that swirly frosting look and watch the video here for a short demonstration.
Then I made these Christmas ball cake pops! They actually were ordered with an adorable Christmas Gingerbread House birthday cake that I'll be sharing next week! My customer requested that they be simple, but wanted them to resembled sparkly red Christmas ball ornaments.
So... I used my Cake Ball Roller to make the cake balls. You can see my how to make cake pops tutorial here. Then I dipped them in Wilton red candy melts and sprinkled them with red sanding sugar! Perfect!!
Speaking of cake pops - I also made these simple cake pops dipped in white candy melts and sprinkled with green and red sanding sugars! These were made with red velvet cake mixed with a bit of cream cheese frosting!
OH, and then there's this. Ya'll know I'm not crafty, but my kids... well thank goodness they're more talented to me. My 10 year old son Caleb asked if I would buy him some candy canes to make a wreath with. Update : I have a tutorial for How to Make a Candy Cane Wreath published HERE and new pin below for ya!
He got the idea from a little book put together by our 4-H leader - I think she got the ideas included in it from magazines and/or Pinterest. I'd love it if you'd follow all my boards on Pinterest!!
And then... here are a few things I've already posted about, but thought I'd give you a little reminder.
For pecan lovers, there's the Italian Cream Cupcakes and the....
Then there's the yummy Christmas candy.
Then there's also these Chocolate Peanut Clusters. This is a very old post, but this is the easiest, most delicious chocolate candy that I make, so if you like chocolate, peanut butter and peanuts... ignore the post quality, but enjoy the candy!! YUM!!
And last, but certainly not least. Oreo Truffles. I don't make these often, because I tend to eat them until I they're all gone! It's terrible. And wonderful.
Anyway - I do hope you'll try something new this Christmas season and please enjoy something sweet 🙂
