5 Fun & Festive Christmas Treats

This fresh Korean cream cake is my absolute favorite cake of all time.  If you’ve never had an Asian bakery style cake, you’re really missing out.  The fluffy chiffon cake layers are the only base worthy enough to slather liberally with the light and airy frosting it’s traditionally paired with.  The taste is subtly sweet and citrusy with a light as a feather texture and a fresh fruit crown, making it one of my most popular recipes here on the blog.

My chocolate peppermint cookies are a great versatile cookie that I often turn into my hot cocoa cookies.  These are soft and cakey cookies that just scream festive holiday flare.

If you’re looking for something effortless yet tasty, my “Christmas crack” aka chocolate saltine toffee is for you.  It’s a very forgiving, set it and forget kind of recipe in the vein of crispy rice squares or muddy buddies.  The bonus is that it doesn’t take that much more effort to make a party sized tray of these or to jazz it up with sprinkles, fleur de sel, toasted nuts, candies/caramel drizzle/marshmallows, white chocolate or graham crackers.

My snowball cookies are great if you’re looking for cookies with a longer shelf life.  Tip: ceylon cinnamon really kicks these up a notch.

Finally, if you’re looking for a treat that you can make ahead and not have to worry about, my no-bake cookie dough truffles are a great option.

Tip: rum can be substituted for the milk and vanilla extract for boozy holiday truffles.
