Christmas foods are a wonderful ad yummy part of the holiday season. Candies and desserts being a favorite – at least in my book. Fudges, cookies, cakes, and all the other delicious additions to our days that make the holiday season just a bit sweeter. This is the time of year where diets are tossed out the door, and wonderful desserts take their place in the forefront of our minds and imaginations.
The holiday season is a wonderful time to spend with family and friends. Whether shopping the day away or relaxing by a fire with a loved one sipping on a cup of cocoa with or without marshmallows, you will find this is the season when sweeter is better.
Of course, exploring some of the delicacies of the holiday season can be just about as sweet as actually partaking of them. Take a look at a few Christmas foods that are traditional parts of many households and generations of families.
Fudge says it all!
What is more traditional when it comes to Christmas foods than wonderful chocolaty fudge? This creamy delicacy is sweet and creamy. Whether you like yours with or without nuts, you will find fudge is always a crowd pleaser. Wrapped fudge makes an awesome gift as well as a great addition to the holiday table.
Nowadays, fudge comes in other varieties rather than just chocolate. For instance, peanut butter fudge is more popular than ever. There are even other types of fudge you can make by using your imagination and a good cookbook.
Divinity is divine!
Divinity is a light and delicious candy difficult to make but scrumptious to eat. Divinity is generally one of those candies isolated to the holiday season. However, divinity is delicious anytime of the year. You will appreciate the wondrous world of divinity each holiday season, and the lightness of this candy makes it a favorite Christmas food every year.
Sugar cookies are children friendly!
One of my favorite holiday traditions is making sugar cookies. Add frosting and some sprinkles, and you have a delicious treat good for any day. In addition, children will love to munch on these, but they will have even more fun making them. The dough is easy to handle, add some cookie cutters, and you have a wonderful day of family fun perfect for children of every age.
Ginger bread for houses and more!
Nothing is quite as traditional as a ginger bread house. Each delicate piece is a wonderful addition to more than just taste. Ginger bread makes the whole house smell wonderful! You will also find it looks awesome. Kids and adults alike have fun adding the frosting and arranging their house with little gumdrop bushes and candy cane poles.
Ginger bread cookies are also great! You will love how these ginger bread men just scream holiday spirit.
Christmas food is a mix of tradition and modern day fun. Whether you are making cookies or candies for your own pleasure or as gifts, there is something to be said for these delicious edibles that are a taste sensation with every bite.
