If you are looking for some last minute holiday entertaining/gift/food ideas and can’t seem to find what you are looking for in Sugar Rush, here are a few of my other holiday favorites from blog posts past:

Gingerbread White Chocolate Blondies: It’s like you are eating up the holidays in brownie form. Chewy and buttery and delicious.

Chocolate and Caramel Dipped Pretzel Rods: Hands down my favorite, favorite, favorite Christmas candy to make and eat. Sweet, salty, beautiful and tasty.

Chocolate Cream Cheese Truffles: No tempering chocolate or messy dipping, just simple, decadent truffles that will have you ruining any and all diet plans.

Holiday Morning Buns: Our traditional Christmas morning breakfast – made the night before for a no-fuss breakfast, these buns are tender, light and absolutely amazing.


Chocolate Peppermint Cookies:
A Girl Scout Thin Mint knockoff, these cookies are unbelievable. Every time I make them I can’t believe how stunning they are. A holiday favorite around our house.

Chocolate Turtle Cookies: Another favorite Christmas cookie, these are absolutely breathtaking in presentation and delicious in taste – chewy, nutty, caramelly and perfect.

Almond Roca: I’ve been making this version of toffee for years and it is unbelievably buttery and yummy. My favorite toffee recipe by a long shot.

Mock Chocolate Macadamia Nut Toffee: A simpler, yet just as tasty version of toffee. Made with graham crackers, a whole lot of other love (read: butter and sugar), and topped with chocolate and macadamia nuts – this toffee ranks right up there with my favorites.

Gingerbread Sleds: Our family’s favorite holiday tradition and our take on the famous gingerbread house, we decorate these every year and have a blast doing it. Filled with goodies, these sleds make the perfect neighbor treat.

Now, enough of the sweets, right?? Check back Monday for a healthy and delicious recipe that is lovely enough for entertaining and simple enough for a weeknight meal!
