'Tis the season to bake all the fun and festive sweets. These 25 Holiday Treats are easy to make and fun to share. Whether you need easy desserts for holiday parties or cute treats to give to neighbors and friends, you will find something here.
It's the most wonderful time of the year. There is something great about spending time with friends and family, buying gifts, and of course, doing holiday baking. From kiss cookies to peppermint fudge, it's the happiest season of all.
During the holidays, I go overboard with sprinkles, colored sugars, and cute treats like candy canes, reindeer, snowmen, and Christmas trees. I love how much fun they add to cookie trays and the holiday table.

All of these homemade treat ideas are easy to make and taste delicious. Plus, many of them are no bake desserts, which is perfect when you are short on time.

You can also pack these Christmas desserts in tins and give out food gifts. Or load up a cookie tray and share them at parties, so everyone can enjoy the flavors of the season.
Whatever you choose, rest assured that these Christmas treats will bring the magic of the holiday season to those around you.

They all look delicious - it would be hard to pick just one to bake! I'm glad to see all the peppermint involved... It's my flavour of choice during this season.
