10 Christmas treats from Canadian food bloggers

Gingerbread mocha biscotti

“My favourite part of holiday baking is thinking about all the special people in my life and coming up with recipes just for them. Whether they’ve got dietary restrictions, or a penchant for a certain type of food, putting your thoughts, effort, and energy into creating something for someone else is such a fulfilling experience. And, it’s one of those homemade creations that you know everyone will love. Because really, who’s going to turn down delicious food when it's made just for them?” – Cheri, Kitchen Simplicity Get the recipe: Gingerbread mocha biscotti

Eggnog Milkshake

“The best part about holiday baking is that the holidays are the perfect excuse to make a few festive cakes and desserts, and of course, dozens and dozens of all different kinds of cookies. I always bake from old family recipes, but also test out new ones. And nobody ever complains or tells me that I'm baking too much because, after all, 'tis the season! Baking for the holidays keeps me feeling festive and fills the kitchen with holiday spirit. Of course, a little homemade eggnog helps, too…” –Janice, Kitchen Heals Soul Get the recipe: Eggnog Milkshake

Chocolate thumbprint cookies

“We love holiday baking because we know how much family and friends are going to enjoy the results. Really, what's better than homemade cookies? Plus, it's become a tradition for us to get in the kitchen with our kids, do some baking and decorating. We love recipes like this one where you can prepare the dough and just get the kids involved at the end for the decorating. They don't always end up perfect looking but who cares as long as everyone is having fun. “ –Laura and Ceri, Sweet Potato Chronicles Get the recipe: Chocolate thumbprint cookies

Brown sugar shortbread with Toblerone

Healthier Chocolate Turtles

“As much as I love a good dose of sweets, my favourite part of holiday baking is being able to share my treats with friends and family. Whether it be baking up gingerbread men with my nephew, passing along some healthier chocolate candies to friends or surprising family with the hidden black beans in my peppermint black bean brownies, it's the joy in seeing my loved ones enjoy these baked goods that really is the best part. I also love proving to people that healthier treats really can be just as delicious!” –Davida, The Healthy Maven Get the recipe: Healthier Chocolate Turtles
