Quick & Easy Festive Treats

Quick and Easy Festive Treats

If in the midst of last-minute shopping, you forgot all about dessert…

Take the stress out of baking this Christmas with these easy-yet-impressive festive treats. Whether you’re after fun cookies to decorate with the kids, or full-on showstoppers, we’ve got all your baking needs covered!



Christmas Light Gingerbread Cookies

It wouldn’t be right to start a Christmas baking list with anything other than gingerbread cookies.

However, add a twist this year and create mini light-bulbs in the shape of a festive wreath.

A perfect dessert-table centrepiece.



White Chocolate Truffles

Not only delicious but an amazing idea, for a last-minute gift.

With tiny holly decorations to make these treats the highlight of the Christmas feast.



Santa Hat Cheesecake Bites

These mini hats are adorable and an impressive treat for the dessert table, whilst being the simplest bake on this list.

It could not get any easier with a shop bought cheesecake, can of whipped cream and a handful of strawberries, you can make these for yourself!



Rolo Ornament Cookies

A simple idea but a great festive activity for kids (and adults of course!)

You can get creative and decorate these treats however you please with just cookies, sweets, sprinkles and rolos. 



Melted Snowman Cookies

Why not make some heart-meltingly cute snowmen.

If you’re looking for an easy design, this is the recipe for you. No need to be too careful, every snowman melts differently!



Stained Glass Cookies

If like many people, icing cookies isn’t your favourite hobby. Let the hard boiled candy do the job for you.

Gift a little bag of these treats to friends and family, or even add some string and turn them into ornaments.



Hot Chocolate Brownie Mugs

With Hot Chocolate season in full swing. Here are some mini mugs that look complicated but couldn’t be easier.

A chocolate treat that’s not only for the festive season, but perfect for any snow day!



Candy Cane Cookies

Such a simple but adorable design, these candy cane cookies can even be made a few days in advance!

Just dye, twist and bake your sugar cookie dough, to watch the magic happen.



Grinch Cookies

Christmas cheer isn’t for everyone, but this sweet treat can make even the biggest grinch celebrate this year.

Add green food colouring to your cookie mix and a mini heart decoration for this simple, but efficient grinch-mas design!



Rice Krispie Trees

Lastly, rice krispie snacks had to make an appearance, but with a festive twist.

Decorate these mini christmas trees however you choose! Of course with a pretzel tree trunk and a star on top to finish.
