The holiday season has arrived, and you might be wondering what to bring to a cookie party. I love cookie parties and cookie exchanges because you can discover new recipes and learn about your friends’ holiday traditions. Today I am sharing my favorite recipes for holiday treats, including classic recipes that my family has been making for decades and newer recipes that I created.
Christmas Tree Brownie Bites are simply brownies made from a boxed mix that are cut into triangles and decorated with white chocolate dyed green, sprinkles, and pretzel sticks.
These Snowmen Rice Krispie Treats don’t require any baking! Just follow my recipe for rice krispie treats (I adjust the marshmallow to cereal ratio to make they extra gooey), cut them into shapes with cookie cutters, and decorate. I have also added green dye, topped with sprinkles, and used Christmas tree cookie cutters which is even easier, and equally cute.
If you are up for a more intense baking project, these Millionaires Shortbread Cookies are made with homemade shortbread cookies stuffed with caramel, dipped in dark chocolate, and topped with toasted walnuts. They are so good that they won a contest at my friend’s house.
My family makes these Cream Cheese Cookies every year. They are the thing to make if you like cookies that aren’t overly sweet. They taste a little bit like cheesecake, and they are made with a cookie press so you don’t need to roll out dough and use cookie cutters.
Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bark is really easy to make in big batches and it is the perfect combination of sweet and salty. Bring it to a cookie party, or package it up and give it as a gift.
Need something to wash down all those cookies? Bourbon Eggnog is rich, creamy, boozy, and festive. If you have never tasted homemade eggnog before – it is worlds better than the stuff in a carton at the grocery store.
