The Ultimate Holiday Treats Guide

We're all about presents — both big and small. But at the end of the day, it's really the thought that counts, isn't it?

Chocolates, cookies, macarons, oh my!

From cookie swaps to ugly sweater bashes to Christmas Day itself, you'll be in and out of parties for the next few weeks. Whether it is a friend, co-worker, or family member's house you're visiting, it's always nice to bring a gift that has a little bit of thought put into it.

Along with a great bottle of wine, sweets and desserts are always an ideal gift to bring to any host or hostess — they can add it to their table and you're not insulting them by bringing an unexpected dish.

This season brings us fantastic flavors — peppermint, cinnamon, caramel — all taking center stage in fabulous, Christmas-themed confections.
