Holiday Sweets and Appetizers – Recipe Round Up is a collection of my favorite sweet and savory holiday recipes perfect for entertaining!
With the abundance of Holiday parties coming up, I wanted to compile a post of my favorite Holiday recipes. Last year I did a series called the 12 Days of Christmas and presented some tried and true recipes that I’ve come to depend on as holiday staples.
While I am certainly trying some new recipes this year, I still turn to these classics to round out my baking. I can safely say that each and every one of these (with the exception of the Buche de Noel, for lack of time) will make an appearance in my kitchen this season. I am also including some of my favorite appetizers, because a holiday party is not quite complete without them!
Chocolate Cracker Candy is a sweet and salty homemade candy sometimes referred to as "Christmas Crack." It can be left plain chocolate or topped with toasted coconut, M&M candies, or sprinkles. It keeps well in the fridge and is perfect for holiday gifting in a festive tin!
There is no lemon in this Poppy Seed Bread! This is an incredibly moist and flavorful bread with the flavors of butter and almond extract. The sweet drizzle on the crispy top adds another dimension to this already tasty confection.
