Baking for the Holidays

As we all know, I love to bake. So whenever I am going to someone’s house I like to bake something and take it with me. Sure, I can bring an appetizer or a side dish, but I always have to bring along a dessert of some sort. It’s just my thing.

Cookies n Cream Fudge

We are going to my sister’s house on Christmas, and she asked me to bring a side dish that I am always asked to make. It’s one of those dishes that everyone loves so you’re ALWAYS asked to bring it. But I wanted to bring some treats as well. That’s the fun part, after all.

Here’s what I’m taking…

Peanut Butter Fudge – My grandmother always made the BEST peanut butter fudge. I remember helping her make it when I was younger. It was one of those recipes where you have to get out the candy thermometer and it’s a big production. I found a recipe that tastes just like hers except I don’t get out the candy thermometer for mine. It’s one of those “boil for 5 minutes” and it’s done. That’s right up my alley!

Cookies n Cream Fudge – About 5 years ago I took this along to Thanksgiving dinner. I had never made it before but it sounded good. I’m all about cookies n cream anything. So I made a few recipe substitutions (it called for white chocolate and I don’t like that) and I took it along. Everyone loved it. They raved about it. They asked for the recipe. So I figured I’d make it again and take it on Christmas.

Chocolate Cupcakes w/ Cookies n Cream Buttercream Icing

Triple Chocolate Biscotti – Mmmm, biscotti. And even better that it’s chocolate. With chocolate chips. Dipped in chocolate. There’s no such thing as a chocolate overload around the holidays.  Now…I’m not a dipper. And I still love this biscotti. So this biscotti is great for the dippers and the ones that won’t dip!

Chocolate Cupcakes with Cookies n Cream Buttercream icing – Last weekend I was testing an icing recipe so I made some chocolate cupcakes. I wanted to make a really good cookies n cream buttercream icing. The end product was amazing. Absolutely delicious!  So I decided that I want to make some and bring them along tomorrow. My 3 year old niece is just like her Aunt and LOVES cake and most importantly icing. So she’ll love these!
