The holidays are not complete without the smell of delicious things cooking. Every family has that one thing that just makes it feel like the holidays. In my family, this is it. These cranberry muffins are a favorite at my house during the holidays. Deliciously decadent, especially eaten hot with the rich butter sauce poured over the top, these will be the hit of any holiday party and no one will believe how simple they are to make.
Holiday baking is pretty much the best part of the season. There’s nothing like making a big plate of treats as a family and sharing them with friends.
We wanted to change things up a bit this year so we came up with these Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cookie Cups. These treats have a little bit of everything and are perfect for a holiday treat plate.
We played around a lot while creating these cookies. We wanted to come up with something that really felt like the holidays to us and nothing feels like Christmas more to me than candy cane hot chocolate.
Want a cookie that is guaranteed to satisfy everyone’s cravings?
These Ultimate Monster Cookies have everything!
These cookies were kind of an experiment because I ran out of my usual secret ingredient for cookies — vanilla pudding mix.
I had already started making them and when I looked in the pantry I only had devil’s food pudding. I decided just to go with it and see how it turned out.
The results are decadent chocolatey cookie with a creamy peanut butter center. Normally monster cookies have peanut butter mixed into the batter but I wanted to mix it up and have a gooey surprise in the middle.
