Christmas Baking Ideas

It's getting to that time of year again. The neighbors are making fudge and truffles, and I'm starting to bake dessert for Christmas Eve. If you have no idea what to make for Christmas, here's a few yummy ideas(:

Cranberry Orange Truffles
This recipe is on my to make list. Don't they look good? Different from your regular truffles, but probably still delicious.

Chocolate Cheesecake Candy Cane Bars
Yummmm. I'm not really a peppermint kind of person, but these look amazing.

I've tried the Soy Nog and that was really Delicious so I bet this would be even better!

I think Red Velvet is always a favorite.

Easy Sugar Cookies
These cookies don't look that hard to make. So if you're not good with decorating icing like I am, they're perfect!

Gingerbread Cake Pops
These are super cute. And cake pops are always a fun treat to make.

Happy Baking Everyone! And Merry Christmas(: I'll be posting new recipes after Christmas.


  1. I vote for those Gingerbread Cake Pops. Mmmm....they look and sound really good.

  2. Ohhhhhh Danielle...these all look *so* wonderful! Wow! Beautifully photographed as well. I bet the combo of cranberry/orange on the truffles is fantastic! All nicely done. Happy Holidays!

  3. @Nina, I didn't photograph them, they're just ideas(: My photos aren't that good yet. Hopefully they will be soon!

  4. Love the round-up of ideas!! I bookmarked the truffle recipe. Fingers crossed I can make it this week :-)

  5. oooh they all look yummy Danielle! The truffles especially!!

  6. These all look like amazing recipes. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

    Merry Christmas!

  7. The Cranberry-Orange Truffles look AMAZINGLY DELISH! And the Redvelvet cupcakes look so good! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  8. Those first truffles look so good! I just made cranberry orange bread and I think the flavors are perfect for Christmas! I want to try them! :)

  9. I like the idea of cran-orange truffles--I wouldn't have thought of that! I usually gravitate towards chocolatey or pumpkin-spicey desserts. I ignore the fruity ones too much! YUM
