by Erin Williams
The holidays are a time to eat and be merry with friends and family, and these recipes by 10 food bloggers to inspire an epic holiday feast.
No matter what you’re in charge of bringing to the holiday party this year, we’ve got you covered!
On appetizer duty?
Everyone can DO Easy Irish Cream Chocolate Fondue by Wanna Be a Country Cleaver. Don’t be intimidated by this sweet treat: It’s simple to make and will be the cream of the crop at the appetizer table. Plus, the Irish cream makes it extra minty!
Is brunch ready?
Earn the title of holiday MVP, all before noon, when you bring Cranberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake, by Well Plated. This beautiful, moist bundt cake looks so festive it could serve as the centerpiece of your table — but it tastes so good it won’t last long!
Who’s in charge of dinner?
YOU will be the star with Beef Wellington Macaroni and Cheese, the perfect dish to bring to a holiday potluck. Climbing Grier Mountain’s recipe has all the favorite flavors of a traditional beef wellington, but it takes much less time to prepare.
What’s for dessert?
Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake by In Katrina’s Kitchen requires minimal prep, yet still looks (and tastes!) stunning! It’s best served with a large dollop of whipped cream and with a tall glass of cold milk.
The kids table will explode with holiday cheers when what to their wondering eyes should appear Party Parfait Cups by Eat2Gather. These individual cups can be made with chocolate or vanilla pudding and are perfect for a crowd. Added bonus: Let kids add all the holiday sprinkles they desire!
White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Pie by Inside BruCrew Life is snowy white and all things nice! Plus, we’re kind of Greek-ing out about the yogurt packed into this no-bake dessert to make it extra light and fluffy.
Have gluten-free guests?
Most dairy foods are naturally gluten-free! For a holiday treat that looks as festive as it tastes, try Avocado Mint Gluten Free Cheesecake with Brownie Bottom by Food Faith Fitness. Your guests will never know what makes this dessert green, or that it is secretly healthy, thanks to a certain heart-healthy fruit.
Anyone bring drinks?
Run, run as fast as you can and catch Love Grows Wild’s Gingerbread Milkshake, which tastes like a gingerbread man! It’s just as yummy but requires half the work of making cookies. Plus, sip on a dose of calcium to help build strong bones!
During the holidays every beverage should be topped with whipped cream, don’t you agree? Whip up Shugary Sweets’ easy Frozen Whipped Cream Topping. Try all three flavors: Classic, Peppermint and Eggnog!
