25 Fun and Festive Holiday Treats

25 Fun and Festive Christmas Sweets and Treats | View From The Fridge

Whoa!!  I have a food post for you guys today!  Yes … you’re still at the right blog.

Come to think of it … I realize that my blog name is misleading … View From The Fridge.

I realize that my tagline starts with the word ‘Food’ (Food.Crafts.Kids.Home) … it’s a long story.

If you were new here, you’d expect all kids of food related information, right?  I get that.

Well, if you’re NOT new, then you’ll know I’m all about the ladder three parts to that slogan (Crafts, Kids, and Home), and not so talented on the Food part.

I should change that tagline and logo, huh?  Or learn to cook and bake.  Yep … I’ll get on that.  One of these days.

Anyway … where is all this rambling going?  Well … I have rounded up 25 of the most festive, fun, and delicious (well, delicious looking, at least) Holiday Dessert Ideas for you!

I have high hopes for MY Christmas baking this season (but don’t hold your breath for any blog posts about my own baking …. ).

So … let’s checkout some inspiration (from the best of the blog world), shall we?!?
