Holiday sweets have never looked this good!

Holiday Sweets Roundup

Hi friends!

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!  As you can imagine I’m tragically behind on all things holiday related after running off to Hawaii for the first part of the month.  Totally worth it though… and I might just be giving a lot of chocolate covered macadamia nuts as gifts… or maybe some Kona coffee?  Just act surprised if that’s what you get, ok? 🙂

In addition to getting those last minute gifts, I need to add some holiday baking to my weekend plans.  Now you may have noticed, I don’t share a ton of sweets on Running in a Skirt, but when I do I make sure it’s either health-ified OR something really worth the splurge.

So today I thought I’d share a roundup of the best sweets my little blog has to offer.  They are sure to be the hit of any holiday gathering.

    Those cannoli stuffed strawberries are famous! I remember bringing those to a BBQ and they were a huge hit!

    Mmm. If you came over and cooked Christmas breakfast and kept it going all day, I wouldn’t complain! So many delicious options. However, you can’t leave out the cookies (acceptable all day on holidays, right?!). Your peppermint cookies sound delicious!

    So I won’t lie, I am not much of a sweets fan (the traditional kind, I like protein treats for whatever reason) but these all look amazing!!! I’ll be sharing for sure 🙂

    I haven’t done any holiday baking yet because I haven’t really had much access to a kitchen, but hopefully when I’m back at my parents’ house, I can make something! :]! These all look so good!

    Those all look like yummy treats for xmas. I usually only bake Christmas cookies. Can’t wait to hear about your Hawaii trip. That’s definitely on my bucket list.
