  1. Well, finally, our home is completely decorated, inside and out, for the holidays. Sweet Shark listened to my pleas and we did tone it down a bit this year. Two fewer garland, one less wreath, and several Santas are going to be taking a very long nap this year. The house still looks beautiful. No one will ever miss a single Christmas decoration that didn’t come out of its box.
  2. I had a lovely Christmas lunch with my group of sorority sisters. Last year we switched from dinner at someone’s home to lunch at a restaurant. We all were ready not to drive all over town at night. For my little gift, I gave everyone a little bottle brush tree with a bow. So simple, but cute.
  3. Last night Sweet Shark and I had one of our favorite couples over to see all the Christmas decorations and share a cocktail before we went to one of our neighborhood restaurants for dinner. We love having friends over for the holidays, but we also love going out for dinner with all the restaurants decorated for Christmas.
  4. This Sunday is our neighborhood Christmas party. I’ll be taking one of the desserts I’m sharing below as my contribution. You can guess which one.
  5. This week, the blog was, of course, about Christmas: 28 Gifts and Stocking Stuffers for your Favorite Baker (After reading all these delicious Christmas dessert recipes below, you may want to order some of these items for yourself) and 9 Ideas to Add the Christmas Spirit to Your Home.

Christmas Dessert Recipe Ideas for You

Christmas peppermint cake dessert

Peppermint Fudge Cake

Jenn of Baked by an Introvert shares this beautiful Peppermint Fudge Cake. Peppermint is a classic Christmas flavor and this cake does it right.

Christmas yule log cake

Classic Christmas Yule Log

Buche Noel is a Christmas tradition. It may be the prettiest cake ever. It’s not as hard as you may think. I know because I’ve made it a time or two. Try this version from Lindsay of Life Love and Sugar.

chocolate covered peanut butter balls

Chocolate-Covered Peanut Balls

These perfect little bites are perfect for a dessert party or when you want to offer just a delicious nibble. Jen of Midwest Life and Style shows how easy it is to make this beloved combination of flavors.

cranberry cake

Cranberry Christmas Cake

I love cakes like this one. They can be dessert or breakfast. If you eat cake for breakfast, does it count as a sweet? I think not. This one from Fiona of Just So Tasty looks so moist and luscious.

eggnog pudding

Eggnog Pudding

I love eggnog while decorating the Christmas year. It’s so rich and creamy. That eggnog flavor with a sprinkling of nutmeg is classic Christmas (remember Clark Griswold?) Dana of This Silly Girl’s Kitchen puts a different spin on eggnog flavor in this luscious dessert. I love that this dessert can be served in individual containers.

no bake divinity

No-Cook Christmas Divinity

Divinity has been around as a Christmas candy as long as I can remember. My mother-in-law used to make it (how I miss her). Heather of Sprinkle Bakes shares an easy way to make this classic that my MIL would love.

gnome Christmas cookies

The Cutest Gnome Cookies

Confession: I am not a big fan of gnomes. But when I saw this cute little cookie, I was smitten. What a cute little dessert! Are they hard to make? Not at all. Andrea of Just is a Four Letter Word shows you exactly how to take simple ingredients and turn them into sublime and whimsical dessert.

Christmas dessert peppermint macarons

Peppermint Meringue Cookies

Another peppermint dessert to brighten your holiday table. This time it’s a sweet little cookie. I love meringues and they are so much easier than you think to make. Thank you to Natalya of Mom’s Dish for sharing this pretty pop of Christmas.

Christmas dessert gingerbread macarons

Gingerbread Macaron Cookies

Macarons are one of my favorite cookies. The crunchy outside, the creamy inside, the pretty colors – they make me want to say, “ooh, lala”. Have you ever had gingerbread macarons? Well, here is your chance with this classic Christmas flavor from Camila of Pies and Tacos.

Christmas dessert hot chocolate

Hot Chocolate Cookies

Are you a hot chocolate lover like I am? Then you must try this cookie with the look and taste of hot chocolate from Christi of Love from the Oven. Don’t you know Santa would love this morsel with his milk?
