Holiday baking is like an athletic event in my family. It takes preparation, years of training, and in the end it is always worth the hard work put in.
Growing up, we would all bake cookies together as a family, with my mom leading the show…well now that my sister and I live a couple of hours away from my family we have to do our own holiday baking…which we are both completely fine with!
We blocked out our Saturday night to tackle some of our holiday favorites.
Delight Bars (although you may know them as Magic Bars!)
Holiday Pretzel Buttons (made with a Rolo instead of a kiss!)
Mom’s Holiday Buckeyes (my favorite!)
Cherry Coconut Bars (This is the recipe featured in the holiday cookbook!)
Healthy Holiday Bark
The Holiday Bark is a something new I tried so that I could have a slightly healthier holiday treat this year.
To make this healthy treat I included:
I was so pleased with the end result. The chia adds a slight extra crunch to the chocolate and the flavors of the nuts, berries, and chocolate blend together to create a treat that doesn’t really taste healthy at all 🙂
