Winter is my favorite season to get together and bake with the girls in my family.While this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own.
Winter is a time of faith, family, friends, and of course, food! The girls in our family get together every holiday to bake, bake, bake!
You’ve likely spent the last couple of weeks glued to an iPhone weather app, like WeatherBug, for your updated hourly weather forecast, so you know when the best time to dodge bad weather. Rather than being stuck in the house like a prisoner of old man winter, try some new winter recipes to bring a little warmth to the holidays.
No Bake Cookie Dough Bars – Baking is one of the staples of the winter season. Sometimes, you don’t have enough time to sit around the oven while wrapping presents. So, No Bake Cookie Dough Bars are an easy answer! Besides, who doesn’t love just snacking away on fresh cookie dough? YUM!
Chocolate Chestnut-Mousse – During the holidays, a light dessert is the perfect way to end a meal. Unfortunately, a lot of people are recovering from the over indulgence of pie from Thanksgiving. This holiday inspired chocolate mousse is sure to be a coward pleaser and can be whipped up in less than 30 minutes!
Cherry Pistachio Pinwheel Cookies – Pinwheel lollipops have been an iconic symbol of the holidays since the beginning of time, or so it seems. So, what better way to get into the holiday spirit and beat the winter blues than baking some cookies! Cherry and Pistachio, combined into a melt in your mouth bundle of pure awesomeness. Need we say more?
You don’t have to be a cooking whiz or a baking guru to enjoy any of these recipes. Even though weather experts are saying we are going to have the worst winter we’ve ever seen, you can use your iPhone weather app to stay one step ahead and safe. If you’re stuck indoors, don’t worry, you can make one of the three recipes above to put a smile back on anyone’s face, including your own!
