Christmas Sweets & Treats

I shared the The Ultimate List of Christmas Cookies – 101 Christmas Cookie Recipes! recently, and today I’ve got 60+ Scrumptious Christmas Sweets & Treats recipes for you to have a look through and try out.

Christmas is that time to enjoy a few more sweet treats than you would do normally, and it’s also a great time for getting in the kitchen to make and bake. Whether that is on your own because it’s your happy place, or with your partner, kids, or friends, there are lots of great Christmas sweets and treats here for you prepare.

Homemade Truffle Selection

So many of these recipes would make great foodie gifts – you could make up a few batches of the [different] truffles, or fudge, (or any of the other yummy treats listed) and place into a gift box or cello bag tied with ribbon. A nice glass jar, or a decorative cake or cookie tin would also work well. Or you could combine with some homemade cookies and make a delicious festive gift basket!

They would be fab for teacher gifts, or if you give gifts to local service providers like the mail man, milk man, etc; or as stand-by gifts if someone pops round unexpectedly.

That’s enough from me though, let’s get to these Christmas sweets and treats recipes!

As with all of my roundups, there are ideas from my blog as well as from lots of fab blogs from around the world. I have made all of links to these 60+ Scrumptious Christmas Sweets & Treats open in a new window so that you don’t lose your place on the list. This post may also be split into several pages, please use the number navigation at the bottom of the post.

Create Christmas was born in 2012, and is now in its 7th year! I share as many festive ideas as I can – my vision for this blog is to think up the ideas so that you don’t have to!
