The most wonderful time of the year is here, and that means the most wonderful eats and treats are near. During the holiday season, there is an occasion for every sort of dish imaginable and always a ready excuse to explain away eating sweet treats, decadent snacks, and sumptuous desserts. Whether you want to cozy up with hot cocoa and a plate of cookies or prepare the fanciest of feasts with the most fabulous dessert platters to follow, sugar and spice are everywhere.  

So, if you find yourself in a pinch or you can’t narrow down which new recipe to test, give one (or all) of these treats a try and trust that yums will follow.

Plus, these goodies do more than fill bellies to the brim — they add a dash of decoration to tabletops, they make kiddos smile with their whimsical presentation, and they cover all the foodie favorites from sweet and salty snick-snacks to melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness.
