Easy Christmas Treat Ideas for the Whole Family
Whip up a batch of tasty treats for Christmas! Your kiddos can help out in the kitchen, creating colorful cookies and so much more. Don’t worry if you aren’t an expert baker. These holiday goodies are easy for everyone to make.
Christmas Ornament Sugar Cookies
Start with your favorite sugar cookie recipe or a boxed mix. If you don’t have the time to whip up a batch of your own cookies, buy ready-made treats. Just make sure the cookies aren’t decorated yet. Use red, green and white frosting to cover the cookies, creating ornaments. Add snowy white crystal sugar to complete the cookies.
Christmas Tree Cake
Again, choose a chocolate cake recipe you already love or boxed mix. Bake the sheet cake in a rectangle-shaped pan. Let the cake cool completely. Cut the rectangle into a Christmas tree-shaped triangle. Leave a small square at the bottom as the trunk. Frost the tree with green icing. Use other colors of icing to add “ornaments” and top the tree with a sprinkle of snowy powdered sugar.
Don’t enjoy baking? Don’t worry. This idea is a no-bake option! Scoop red cherry and green mint ice cream into one large bowl. Top the Christmas sundae with snowy white whipped green, cherries and green sprinkles.
