COVER

So, believe it or not, Christmas is next week so that leave us with my two last installments of the Christmas countdown series based on my “Christmas Holidays” Pinterest board. This time I want to share some festive food and drinks for Christmas Eve and Christmas day itself. Particularly, I’m not a good cook AT ALL, haha, so I’ll be sharing mostly easy treats than, em… real food? 😉 Hope you like them!

TREATS, DESSERTS & APPETIZERS

01 - snackworks

Oreo Santa Hat Cookies: The cutest and, probably, easiest treat of all! (Snackworks)

02 - mom on time out

Easy Christmas Peppermint Patties: I actually read the recipe and instructions here and found it quite easy as there’s no baking involved! 😉 (Mom on Time Out)

03 - easy decorated cake - stocksy

Easy Snowflake Decoration: I thought a snowflake silhouette decoration was an original and super easy way to put a festive mood to your traditional cake recipe.  (Stocksy)

04 - christmas tree relish tray - coupon clipping cook

Christmas Tree Relish Tray: A great and healthy idea for a Christmas Eve appetizer! Just take a few minutes to make the tree shape with these vegetables or any of your choice.  (Coupon Clipping Cook)

05 - tree cookies - realsimple

Tree Cookies: If the usual over-the-top decorated Christmas treats are not your thing, then these lovely minimalistic cookies are the perfect option for you! 🙂 (Real Simple)

06 - its always autumn

Christmas Tree Oreos: Speaking of cookies, yes, Oreos again! I made some Halloween-themed dipped Oreos and I can assure you they’re an easy and extremely customizable treat to make. If the little Christmas tree you see in this recipe is a bit complicated, you can always replace it with red/green or red/white sprinkles. (It’s Always Autumn)

07 - roxanas home baking A simple vanilla roll cake with red and green dots and spirals of creamy buttercream is the perfect dessert for Christmas parties

Christmas Vanilla Roll Cake: Aren’t roll cakes always a lifesaver? A simple vanilla roll cake with red and green dots and spirals of creamy buttercream is the perfect dessert for Christmas parties. (Roxana’s Home Baking)

08 - nicely decorated cupcakes - cute food for kids

Wreath Cupcakes: Just like I said before with the snowflake cake, the idea of an easy and festive decoration is the reason why I included these cupcakes on the list. I’m sure we all have a recipe for cupcakes that we swear by, so why not adding a Christmas twist to them? You only have to put some M&Ms making a wreath or gum drops like mistletoe over a buttercream frosting, et voilà! (Cute Food For Kids)

09 - christmas pancake - popsugar

Santa Pancakes: Wouldn’t it be cute to have these on the morning of the 25th? 😉 (Popsugar)

Cheese Christmas Tree Appetizer: Unless you don’t like or you can’t eat cheese, you have no excuses for not making this super easy, super fast and super yummy appetizer. Did I mention that it looks like so easy to make? 😉 (aichigo.blog109.fc2.com)
