Funfetti cake batter cookies make the best ice cream sandwiches.
“The children were nestled all snug in their beds while visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads”
The holidays are upon us, and it’s time to bust out all the special occasion treats. I’ve got a sugar high forecasted from now until next year, and I can’t wait to get started.
As much as I love ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, it’s a bit antiquated. I don’t know about you, but I’m not entirely sure what a sugar-plum is. When I’m nestled in my bed I tend to dream about ice cream sandwiches, but that’s just me. Probably because I live in California and it’s never too cold for ice cream here.
I’m guessing The Hubs probably dreams about chocolate chip cookies, and the dogs are probably dreaming about Milk-Bone dog treats, but one thing I can guarantee is that no one I know is dreaming about sugar-plums.
For most of the year I’m not much of a sweets person, but once the holidays roll around all bets are off. Now is the time of the year when I can flex my creative baking muscles and finally bring to life every magical treat I’ve dreamed up throughout the year. It seems like I have more hungry taste-testers this time of the year too, which is a great excuse to make a ton of edible gifts to share.
One thing that really drives my creativity during the holidays is all the special holiday-themed baking items are available at Target. How can I resist buying festive items like Pillsbury Funfetti Holiday Cake Mix and M&Ms Holiday Minis? As soon as I step foot in the holiday baking aisle, I’m instantly inspired. All those dreamy treats finally begin to come to life.
Once I’m stocked up I hit the kitchen and get baking. This year my ice cream sandwich dreams became a reality in the form of these super fun holiday inspired treats. Easy cake mix cookies wrapped around some mint chip ice cream and adorned with holiday M&Ms minis. I can’t think of a better gift.
Speaking of, I packaged up a few and delivered them to some friends my holiday Ziploc containers. I think I’ll be leaving one for Santa as well. The big guy deserves something extra special this year.
If you’re in need of some holiday baking inspiration, head over to Target and check out all the fun items they have to create some dreamy, seasonal desserts to enjoy and share.
