Christmas Cookies

Christmas season isn’t complete without a batch of sugar Christmas cookies! My very favorite cookie recipe is the William-Sonoma Valentine Sugar Cookie. I enjoy baking the cookies, and my sister prefers to do the decorating, so we make a great team!

To create the reindeer, stocking, tree, and snowflake cookies we’ll need white, red, black and green frosting.. After cookies have cooled, use the Wilton Royal Icing Mix and Wilton Color Right drops to create the colors.

reindeer noses

To make the reindeer cookies we turned the little gingerbread man upside down. Give him a red nose, white ears, and black antlers.

Pipe edges and then flood cookies with the same color. Use Wilton sprinkles to decorate, or pipe more icing to get the look you want.

Use a toothpick to pop air bubbles in the icing and to help create decorations.

Peppermint Fudge Brownies: A Festive Treat | The Crafting Chicks

Hey there Crafty Readers! I’m super excited to be here with you today sharing my favorite brownie recipe with a new twist. My boys love cooking in the kitchen with me and they request these brownies on a regular basis. I love the recipe because it is so easy to make and is a good one to have young bakers help with (and they taste really good too)!

The other day we had a Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake from Chick-fil-A; if you haven’t had one yet you have to try it! As we were enjoying our shakes we were talking about what we wanted to do the rest of the day and they mentioned they wanted to cook something. That’s when I thought; why not combine two of my favorite things into one sweet treat. When we got home we made a batch of our brownies. While they were baking we made a few changes to the frosting. We took out the cocoa powder and added peppermint oil (I just used my EOs but if you have peppermint extract you can use that too) and crushed up candy canes. The key with these brownies and the frosting is to add the frosting after the brownies have been out of the oven 5-10 minutes. You want that peppermint goodness flavor to soak into the brownies.

Peppermint Fudge Brownies: A Festive Treat | The Crafting Chicks

These brownies turned out better than I could have imagined. We took a batch to a family party last week and they were gone in seconds. If you are looking for a festive treat to take to a get together this season (or any time of year really) whip up a batch of these Peppermint Chocolate Brownies; your guests will thank you!

Santa will have to put you on his nice list when you leave him a plate of this easy, no bake Milk & Cookies Bark on Christmas Eve!

Santa will put you on his nice list when you leave these easy, no bake Milk & Cookies Bark for him on Christmas Eve!

Hi friends! Keri back from Shaken Together with another easy adorable no bake dessert to help you spread Christmas cheer this year!  With all of the hustle and bustle that comes with the holiday season, there is nothing better than a sweet treat that is done in minutes and ready for munching or giving to friends and family!

Milk & Cookies Bark

Santa will put you on his nice list when you leave these easy, no bake Milk & Cookies Bark for him on Christmas Eve!

The kiddos will love adding the mini chocolate chip cookies and sprinkles – this no bake dessert is perfect for a snow day or play date! And I bet that jolly old man in the red suit won’t mind finding this Milk & Cookies Bark waiting for him after a long night delivering toys!

Santa will put you on his nice list when you leave these easy, no bake Milk & Cookies Bark for him on Christmas Eve!

So if you haven’t made ‘bark’ before, it is basically melted chocolate (or almond bark – my fave) spread out into a thin smooth layer and then sprinkled with any add ins that you can dream up … pretzels, candy, cookies, sprinkles, etc. Or gummy worms if you remember the Worms & Dirt Chocolate Bark that I shared earlier this year!

For this Christmas version, I used vanilla almond bark to represent the milk we leave for Santa and of course, I had to add cookies! And it’s never a bad idea to use sprinkles 😉 Once the bark is set – pop it in the fridge to quicken the process – use a sharp knife to cut it into smaller pieces.

Santa will put you on his nice list when you leave these easy, no bake Milk & Cookies Bark for him on Christmas Eve!

Once the bark is cut, all that is left to do is chow down!  Oh okay, or package it for gifts, too. This Milk & Cookie Bark would make a cute addition to any cookie tray!

Milk & Cookies Bark {No Bake Christmas Treat!}
Santa will have to put you on his nice list when you leave him a plate of this easy, no bake Milk & Cookies Bark on Christmas Eve! This recipe is easy enough to make with the kiddos, too!
Ingredients
  • One 16 oz. package vanilla almond bark
  • Mini chocolate chip cookies
  • Christmas sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Melt vanilla almond bark according to package directions.
  3. Pour the melted almond bark on the prepared pan and spread it out into a thin, even layer.
  4. Place mini chocolate chip cookies on the almond bark (even the broken pieces) - try to put enough that once broken, each piece of bark will have multiple cookies.
  5. Add Christmas sprinkles.
  6. Allow the bark to set up - I put the pan in the fridge to speed up the process.
  7. Use a sharp knife to cut the bark into smaller pieces.
  8. Enjoy!
See? Easy, festive and absolutely delicious!

Peppermint Egg Nog Punch is the perfect holiday party drink! Peppermint Eggnog Punch

I am so excited to be part of this fun “Deck the Halls” series here at The Crafting Chicks. I am Leigh Anne and you can find me over at Your Homebased Mom where I love sharing everything pretty & delicious!

Music has always been an important part of my life. I grew up with a father who was a singer and directed lots of different choirs and choruses through work and church. I am also lucky enough to have some very musical children so there has always been lots of music around our house. And of course at Christmas time, there are always Christmas Carols – lots of them!

Like many of you we especially enjoy singing Christmas Carols on Christmas Eve. Now that my kids are grown and gone from home I think Christmas Eve may be the only time of year my piano gets used. I got a little crazy last year and actually painted my piano! You can check it out here. After our traditional Christmas Eve fondue dinner and then acting out of the nativity, we gather around the piano for some Christmas Carols. I am the piano player.

We can get a little silly at times and it never fails but that one of the carols we like to sing is “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.”

Peppermint Eggnog Punch

It is fun to sing because Grandma is usually with us on Christmas Eve and the grandkids think it’s fun to sing about Grandma “drinking too much egg nog and getting run over by a reindeer walking home from our house Christmas Eve…” Pretty silly but we love it.

Peppermint Eggnog Punch

So besides singing silly Christmas songs another family tradition is that we have egg nog punch every Christmas Eve! So I guess it’s my fault Grandma got run over by a reindeer – I served her egg nog punch

Peppermint Eggnog Punch

But don’t worry, this eggnog punch is totally safe. No alcohol involved. Just eggnog, peppermint ice cream and lemon lime soda!

Peppermint Eggnog Punch

So if you are worried about Grandma getting home safe and sound on Christmas Eve, maybe you better not serve her Peppermint Eggnog Punch. Save it all for yourself!

We also love to play fun games on Christmas Eve and you can check out all the past Minute to Win It Games we have played over the years – Christmas Minute to Win It, More Christmas Minute to Win it, Even More Christmas Minute to Win It.

Hi! I’m Alli and I’m thrilled to be participating in “Deck the Halls with The Crafting Chicks.” I blog over at Cupcake Diaries where I share easy, family-friendly recipes of all kinds. Especially treats! I admit that I’ve gone days with eating only sugar. It’s just more fun to eat a brownie over a banana!

We absolutely love Christmas carols in our family. We’ve started some of our favorite holiday traditions around classic Christmas carols. Last year we did a “Twelve Days of Christmas” service project for a family that was so much fun. This year we’re making these Christmas Tree Sugar Cookie Bars for neighbors and going caroling with the carol that coincides. Can you guess which one it is?

Christmas Tree Sugar Cookie Bars

If you guessed “O Christmas Tree,” you’re right! My kids are so excited to make these little trees and sing that carol for the neighbors.

Christmas Tree Sugar Cookie Bars

I love so many things about this new family tradition. Not only do we get to go caroling as a family, we also get to make the treat together as a family. These little trees are so much fun to put together and the kids can help decorate them. You can get all kinds of creative with your cookie tree decorating.

Christmas Tree Sugar Cookie Bars

Christmas Tree Sugar Cookie Bars

  • 1 c. butter, softened at room temperature
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 5 c. flour
For the Frosting:
  • 2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 c. butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1/8 – 1/4 tsp. almond extract
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • green food coloring
  • Christmas sprinkles and candies, to decorate
  • pretzel sticks

Grease a standard rimmed cookie sheet (about 12×17) and set aside.

Cream together butter and sugar on medium speed. Add eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to be incorporated into the mixture. Scrape the sides of the bowl and add vanilla; mix well.

Whisk together salt, baking soda, and flour in a medium bowl. Slowly add to the sugar mixture until just combined.

Press the dough evenly into the greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes until lightly golden. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Prepare frosting by using an electric hand mixer to beat the butter until smooth. Then add 2 Tbsp milk, a small amount of food coloring, and almond extract; mix together.

Add powdered sugar about a half cup at a time to avoid a mess. Add 1 Tbsp milk and combine. At this point you can add more food coloring if you want to darken the color of the frosting.

Cut bars into triangles the size you want each tree. Frost and decorate as desired. Insert a pretzel stick into the bottom of each tree for the tree stump.

Alli from Cupcake Diaries

I hope you enjoy this Christmas carol tradition! I can’t wait to do this with my family soon. Come visit my on my blog for more holiday recipes and party ideas! You can also find me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter and Google+.

Hi! My name is Emily and I blog all the things (but mostly food…and mostly desserts) over at Is This Really My Life. I’m sure I sound like a broken record when I say I absolutely love guest posting on the Crafting Chicks. I adore these girls and am blessed to call them my friends online and off.

And yes, they’re as kind, genuine, talented, creative and inspiring in real life as they are online.

If you caught my triple chocolate grasshopper cookies as part of their Bloggers Best: 12 Days of Christmas series, then you may remember the use of “decadent” in the title of that recipe as well. I tried coming up with a word other than decadent for these decadent double chocolate crinkle cookies and the thesaurus’ next best was “delectable.” Let’s be honest, delectable doesn’t roll off the tongue like decadent so decedant it is…and decadent they are!

.
Decadent Double Chocolate Crinkle Cookies -- the best chocolate crinkle cookie recipe you will ever bake!
.

This year’s Bloggers Best is all about decking the virtual halls with our favorite Christmas carols, and while I love just about every carol (as long as it’s not sung by Alvin & the Chipmunks), one of my very most favorites is “Let It Snow” by Harry Connick Jr. because THOSE TRUMPETS.

.
While those ever popular Mexican wedding cookies may come to mind first when imagining a snow-inspired dessert, I’ll take rich chocolate cookie dough rolled in powdered sugar over shortbread dough any day.

.
Decadent Double Chocolate Crinkle Cookies -- the best chocolate crinkle cookie recipe you will ever bake!
.

Why are these chocolate crinkles so decadent? I’ve taken your classic chocolate crinkles recipe and kicked it up a notch by adding a titch of instant espresso powder (optional but I highly recommend it) to enhance the chocolate flavor. I also threw in mini semisweet chocolate chips because double chocolate is always better than single chocolate.

.
Decadent Double Chocolate Crinkle Cookies -- the best chocolate crinkle cookie recipe you will ever bake!
.

Doesn’t the crinkled powdered sugar look super snowy on top of all that chocolate goodness? It’s like these double chocolate crinkle cookies were meant to be eaten while listening to Harry Connick Jr. belt out the lyrics to “Let It Snow.”

By the way, When My Heart Finds Christmas is in the top three of my all-time favorite Christmas CDs and not just because Harry signed it for me years after I purchased it. It wouldn’t be the holidays in our home (or our minivan) without Harry Connick Jr.!

.
Decadent Double Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetend cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp instant espresso powder (optional)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 to 1 cup powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Mix together cocoa powder, espresso powder, sugar and oil in a medium bowl. Beat in eggs one at a time followed by vanilla.
  2. Combine flour, bakin powder and salt in a separate bowl. Add to cocoa mixture and mix until thoroughly combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  5. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of dough (a medium cookie scoop is perfect!) and roll into a ball. Coat each ball in powdered sugar before placing on cookie sheet.
  6. Baked for 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Let cool on cookie sheet for 3 to 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

.

If you love decadent desserts as much as I do, you simply must bake these salted caramel butter bars. They pair perfectly with crinkle cookies for your holiday neighbor plates!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween is a favorite in my home. My kids and hubby really get into the decor, costumes and of course YUMMY Halloween Goodies! My season favorite . . . Candy Apples! The tangy apples with a smother of sweet candy shell just seems to hit the spot for me! This year, I thought how much fun it would be to mix the Spooky Halloween season with one of my favorite treats. So I created this Spooky Halloween Candy Apple Treat!

I used a kit from Urban Accents, which made this SUPER easy and quick to make.  For more spooky fun, I added a glittery black stick and an eyeball that I found at Hobby Lobby.  For the little extra touch I HAD to add a tag “I’ve got my EYE on you” which I think really brings it all to life!!!
blog3

Here are the supplies you will need
PicMonkey Collage

To get the glitter effect, I used a little bit of spray paint, then applied the glitter to the wet paint. No need for glue.

The candy apple mix was super easy to use;  I found my kit from my local bakery. The mix and sticks are included in the package. A quick tip… a candy thermometer is a MUST for successful candy apples!

Now it’s your turn to add a bit of Spooky Apple fun to your holiday! You can’t go wrong with a Spooky Halloween Candy Apple! Here is the free printable for you to enjoy!
