Quick and Easy Christmas Treats

With Christmas just around the corner, it may be time to simplify our “to do” lists and make sure we’re allowing time to actually enjoy the holiday!

If you’d like to make some pretty and delicious treats, but are short on time, here are 7 quick and easy Christmas desserts.  These treats are perfect for gift giving, or serving at your holiday gatherings.

Most of these treats can be made from start to finish in less than an hour.  The Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes and the Simple Snowball Cookies may take a bit longer, but you can spread out the work by baking (the cupcakes or cookies) one day, and frosting the next day.
