Enjoy the Holidays with These Treats

delicious peppermint brownies prepared perfectly for the holidays

The winter holidays make this season one of the best times of the year, in our opinion: you get to spend time with loved ones, give and receive gifts, take a day or so off of work or school and enjoy all the treats that you and your neighbors are making and giving away. This week the Mansions Woodland Blog is dedicating itself to helping you make the most of that last option, making treats, by offering you five holiday treat recipes that will satisfy your sweet tooth cravings all month long, in or outside of your apartment in Conroe, TX.


Jam-Filled Snowball Christmas Cookies

What better way to celebrate snow than to make a treat that makes you feel like you’re a kid tossing snowballs at your friends again? These snowball cookies can be filled with jam or Nutella, so make them your own. Just don’t forget to coat them in powdered sugar so you can channel the love of snow into a delicious treat that no one will want to throw at anyone else.


Hot Chocolate Fudge

Make this hot chocolate fudge with some simple ingredients and putting your chocolate into a microwave. You just have to stir, assemble, and refrigerate. It may seem near impossible to wait the whole four hours for it to refrigerate, but we suggest you put on a couple holiday movies to keep you occupied.


Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

If you’re not the biggest fan of gingerbread cookies, try these gingerbread cupcakes! The author of the recipe says they come out of oven fluffy and moist, and the sweet cream cheese frosting perfectly complements the festive ginger and nutmeg flavoring of the cupcake.


Peppermint Bark

Peppermint is one of the most classic flavors that can grace our homes during this season, but candy canes, while delightful and delicious, don’t always satisfy a craving for a more substantial treat. So incorporate some crushed peppermint candy canes onto some melted (and then cooled) layers of white and semi-sweet chocolate, let them set, and eat to your heart’s content!

Cranberry Christmas Cake

If you like cranberries, sweet, buttery cake; and a cake recipe that doesn’t call for icing, this is a must-try recipe. “This might be the only cake I’ve ever tasted that basically screams holidays to me,” the blogger of this recipe says. Make this for any other holiday this season (or even into next year; we won’t judge). You can even make it gluten-free!


What are your favorite holiday treats? We’d love it if you’d share in the comments! Thanks for reading!
