Merry Christmas! I hope you’re enjoying the day surrounded by people you love. I’m sending this from my sofa, still in pjs and snuggled up to my two favorite presents, my boys Jack and Max. I’ll keep it brief so I can get back to cozing.

Gingerbread Cake PopsI wanted to give you a peak at what’s been baking in my kitchen over the holidays. Remember those gingerbread push pops I made last week? Well, when you cut out the rounds you’re left with all these yummy cake scraps that are too good to toss. So instead, crumble them up and mix them with the leftover icing and wallah! Gingerbread cake pops! You can use the same method that I used to make these chocolate peppermint cake pops. These were a big hit at my holiday gatherings this year and I love the festive Christmas berry design.

Melted Snowman CookiesNow these melted snowman cookies warm my heart. I’ve seen different versions of these over the years and thought they were the perfect cookies to bring to my boys’ school holiday parties. I used this recipe for cookies and royal icing and cut out two rounds from the cookie dough, baked them off  and “glued” the smaller cookie to the larger with a dab of royal icing. You can use the flood icing to finish the whole cookie, allow to dry and then pipe on the snowman’s eyes, carrot nose, arms and buttons.

Melted Snowman CookiesIt’s freakishly warm here for December and even though we don’t have any snow to make a snowman, if we did he would certainly look like this today. Poor guy.

I’ll see you back here next week when I’ll be breaking out the booze to craft some delicious cocktails to kick off the new year. That’s going to make for some pretty fun recipe testing here this weekend! Now back to merry-making…
