Now that the holidays are upon us, it’s time to start planning! Yet between shopping, selecting outfits, attending parties and wrapping up final work projects, having fun with holiday cuisine can often get pushed to the back burner. One of the best things about the holidays is enjoying seasonal treats, so you may as well have fun with it! For your upcoming holiday soirees, you should try one of these five mouthwatering peppermint or gingerbread recipes.
If you have a sweet tooth, this white chocolate peppermint bark will definitely satisfy it! With only five ingredients, this has to be the easiest dessert you’ll ever make. Peppermint bark is addicting though, so the first batch won’t be around for long! If you’re trying to keep your recipes clean and healthy, these mini gingerbread loaves are perfect. They’re dairy free and savory-sweet, so you can really eat them at any meal! Another healthy snack is this dairy-free gingerbread granola. It’s very easy to prepare and can satisfy hunger in a healthy way.
The holidays are all about enjoying ourselves, so we can’t leave out peppermint and gingerbread beverages. This festive Peppermintini will be a hit at any party, which has equal parts vodka and peppermint Schnapps for a refreshing taste. And for a more laid-back drink, this last recipe is a throwback to the old school hot toddy. After a long day of work and commuting in the cold, who wouldn’t love to unwind with a warm and delicious drink? This gingerbread hot toddy has it all; the soothing effect of tea, sugar and molasses for sweetness, orange garnish for freshness and bourbon for a little kick. With these recipes, you’ll prove that being a foodie is always in fashion.
