Must-have Holiday Treats

Eggnog in cups

One of the many joys of the holiday season is the plethora of delicious treats it brings! Whether you’re giving them or receiving them or making them for any crowds you may host this time of year, we’re sure they’ll be a part of your routine. This year at Westminster Towers Blog, we are serving you some of our favorite holiday treat recipes to inspire your next sweet-making venture. Try out one of the following:

White Chocolate Dipped Ginger Cookies by Cooking Classy

If you’re aiming for a holiday treat that combines a traditional holiday flavor with a simple twist, these gingerbread cookies will do the trick. Between the chewy spiced cookies and the white chocolate, these treats are the perfect mixture of flavors and textures. The boughs of holly design in holiday colored candy melts are sure to get people’s attention too!

Oreo Coal by Delish

These oreo-based sweets are a fun play on the childhood fear of getting coal in your stocking from Santa Claus. They only have three ingredients, but don’t let that sway you; chocolate, Oreos, and cream cheese are possibly the three best dessert ingredients you could ask for!  

Peppermint Bark by Sally’s Baking Addiction

With candy canes being one of the most essential sweets around the holidays, making this peppermint bark might just make you the favorite this season! Using white chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, peppermint extract, candy canes, and an oil of your choice, you can skip the expensive store-bought bark and impress others with your own this year!  

Homemade Eggnog by The Kitchn

It is really December without a glass of eggnog? It may seem so much easier to buy this classic holiday drink, but we suggest you give this recipe a whirl this year for a flavor far more satisfying than you could buy in a carton. Make sure to have eggs, granulated sugar, milk, heavy cream, and nutmeg for this recipe, as well as an optional bourbon or rum.
