Before we start making resolutions about getting healthy for 2014, let’s just take a breath and bake something (just for your sanity, or one last hoorah)! My mom bought a bulk pack of chocolate truffles from Costco, and let’s just say if I wasn’t addicted to chocolate before… I think I have a full fledged chocolate addiction now. But, the healthy recipes can wait just a few more days!
I love the simplicity of shortbread, but these twists make the classic recipe more interesting.
Melt-in-your-mouth Shortbread – my favorite!
Candy Cane Shortbread – my recipe!
A peppermint kick is always refreshing, especially paired with chocolate!
Easy Peppermint Bark – my recipe!
This is a great one for kids, or just a classic that can be decorated for fun.
Treats with a bit of crunch and saltiness from nuts are a great play on texture.
Tangy & sweet is always a winning combination.
Elves, candy, cartoons… you name it and you can decorate it!
Charlie Brown Ornaments – love this for kids cookies.
Many of the above recipes have chocolate, but this section is 100% chocolate galore.
Fancy Ass Hot Chocolate – ouu ya, can’t wait to try this one!
and a few more recipes for popular tastes!
Pate Frolle Mince Pies – I’ve never made mince pies before, but this recipe looks amazing!
Whether you’re a choco-holic (like me), or you have a zest for a citrus cookie, I hope you try out a recipe in this collection this week. Just one more sugar rush before 2014 resolutions couldn’t hurt, right?
