My Favorite Holiday Recipes To Make

 I do not wish a grocery store run on anyone today (even though my mom did go this morning), but if you are making a run for the store or are trying to decide what recipes for holiday treats are worth making before greeting the new year this post is for you. There’s something therapeutic to me about baking and cooking (but that’s only come as I’ve gotten older). I spent all day on Monday baking a few favorites to take home for the holidays. 

I have two different snack mixes to share with y’all, an appetizer, and of course, my favorite sugar cookies. The best part about all of these things is that even though they make me think of the holidays, I can be found indulging in them throughout the year as well. One of my favorite parts about the holiday season is the food and sharing it with loved ones. I delivered some of these treats to friends nearby with cute gift tags and a note on the back that said: “made with love and well-washed hands.” I think that once all this is over, a party where everyone brings their favorite holiday treat will be in order but until then, consider this me virtually sharing some of my favorite recipes with y’all! 

White Chocolate Candy Coated Snack Mix

Lovingly referred to as “Christmas Crack” by my roommate and me, I have shared this recipe before here. It’s so easy to make and quite the crowd pleaser! 

Party Mix


My aunt sent me the recipe that I used, and I’m not positive if it’s allowed to be shared or if it’s her secret recipe, but this one seems similar! The best part about party mix is that you can customize the ingredients to only include your favorites. For me, that’s fewer pretzels and more cheerios! 

Swiss and Bacon Dip (sadly, I don’t have a picture of this)

1 (8 oz) package of Cream Cheese

½ Cup Mayonnaise 

1 Cup Grated Swiss Cheese 

2 Tablespoons Chopped Green Onions

8 Slices of Bacon, Cooked and Crumbled

½ Cup Crushed Ritz Crackers

1. Soften cream cheese in a mixing bowl. Once the cream cheese is softened, add mayonnaise, swiss cheese, and green onions; mix well.

2. Transfer to a baking dish (I don’t know the exact size of what I use, but it may be an 8x8. Shape doesn’t really matter) and top with bacon and crackers. 

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbly.

4. Serve with wheat thins or favorite cracker.

This is a great recipe to make ahead of time to store in the fridge and cook when needed! My mom has been known to make a couple in advance of the holidays and store them in the refrigerator. 

Iced Sugar Cookies

This “recipe” is about to be a complete copout since this year I opted to attempt to keep things simple and used Betty Crocker’s Sugar Cookie Mix instead of going homemade. For the icing, I tried something new and have a feeling I won’t stray now that I’ve tried it. I used Martha Stewart’s Royal Icing Recipe for the flood icing and decorating icing of my sugar cookies. To get the icing to spread enough on the base layer, I added a bit more water than what is stated in the linked recipe

I’d love to hear what your go-to recipes are during the holiday season!
