Blind Pig Friends! Let us apologize for our recent absence. We made a mad dash trip to New York to visit Piglet #1 last weekend. We thought we would have time to get things together to send out a post this past week, but as you noticed– it never happened! We will fill you in on our New York trip later. Today you are getting the low down on some super Christmas baking treats!
One of The Blind Pig’s Family favorite holiday traditions is baking and putting together our holiday goody baskets for friends and family. It is a big event that takes days of baking and decorating to pull together. Whether you are baking for an army of baskets to be delivered to family and friends or just want one special treat to take to Grandma’s house on Christmas day, The Blind Pig Blog has you covered with lots of special treats. Who needs sugarplums dancing in your head, when you can try one of The Blind Pig’s confections instead?
Here are our ideas that work well in a basket or for a special gift of sweetness and love.
Borghetti Brownie Caramel Bites
We shared this delicious easy recipe with you in the fall. Even if you are not a pro baker, you can easily pull this recipe off without a hitch!
This gem of a recipe was our number one post for 2018 and when you taste these, you will see why! This recipe is a little time intensive, so make sure you have a few hours of time blocked out to pull this off.
This recipe was shared with you in our Valentine post last February. However, we have been using this for our Christmas cookies for years. You get excellent sugar cookies for decorating everytime. Don’t forget the Irish cream in the recipe, it gives the cookies a yummy hint of chocolate.
These easy to make truffles are so rich and yummy. Your friends and family will think you purchased them from an expensive chocolatier!
This treat is great around Halloween, but we make again around the holidays. It is great for placing in a decorative bag and handing out as a special gift.
We shared this with you right before Thanksgiving. It would make a wonderful addition to a dessert plate for guests to nibble on after a big holiday meal.
Spirited Chocolate Orange Bars
These versatile bars are great any time of the year. These would work well on a dessert plate passed around for guests to pick and choose. The flavor of chocolate paired with a hint of zesty citrus makes the dessert feel light and refreshing.
These cookies are time intensive, but a wonderful combination of mint and chocolate for any holiday celebration.
Our rum balls are easy to make and are an eye catching addition to any goody basket.
If your family likes coffee and chocolate, then this easy recipe is a must to try for your holiday giving.
We shared this recipe with you this fall. We made the recipe again and placed the nuts in decorative baggies to share with our goody boxes.
Do you have your holiday baking complete? What treats do you usually make for the holidays? We would love to hear about your ideas and preferences!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our Blind Pig Friends! We wish you safe travels and the happiest of Christmas memories.
