No-Fuss Holiday Treats to Share

You’re not busy, are you?

The second week of December is usually a pretty relaxing time for me. I’m not stressed. At. All. Just enjoying the twinkle lights and cookies that keep finding their way to my house.

At least, that’s what I try to tell myself.

I’m actually a hot mess right now, getting things ready for the big day and using three different apps on my phone to keep my ducks in a row.

If you, too, are a stressed-out mess and need a few easy treat ideas to give away, here are a few of my favorites!
5-Minute Maple-Ginger Glazed Pecans -

5-Minute Maple-Ginger Glazed Pecans: Addictive, so I hear.

 Burnt Sugar Almonds -

Burnt Sugar Almonds: Not quite done in 5 minutes, but they’ll make you so glad you didn’t go to the mall the weekend before Christmas.

Cranberry Butter -

Cranberry-Orange Butter: is good smeared on anything… toast, biscuits, pancakes, scones, fingers, baby toes.

Homemade Nutella -

Homemade Nutella: You may want to make a lot in case you won’t want to give it away. Just warning you.

White Chocolate Pretzel Buttons -

White Chocolate Pretzel Buttons: These are great for any holiday. Can you tell I have a thing for pretzels and chocolate?

White Chocolate Coconut Pistachio Bark -

White Chocolate Coconut Pistachio Bark: Also has lavender and clementine zest — perhaps the most unique, gorgeous, best-tasting bark I’ve ever had.

Here are a few others around the blogosphere…

Toasted Coconut Hazelnut Butter by Top with Cinnamon

White Chocolate Peppermint Popcorn by Simply Scratch

Honey Cayenne Roasted Almonds by Knead to Cook

Pretzel Swirl Peppermint Bark by Alaska from Scratch

Happy Gifting!

    Any kind of nuts (which I don’t even like) + sugar is EVIL! Seriously, so very evil. Any time I make them, I eat them all in one sitting and then surprise! I’ve gained a few pounds by the next day. Hmp. Wish I had some self control because I love the idea of the ginger ones.

    And all the other goodies here!

    Those pecans are incredible. I love them too much. At some point, Christmas Crack needs to make this list ;)

    Um did I read you were going to ship a sample of each to me for Christmas?? HA! Thanks for the link up my friend and you’ve inspired me to wrap up those pecans for teacher gifts this year! Xo!
