Candy Cane Dessert Minis

It seems every year the holiday season comes quicker and quicker. I love to host holiday gatherings, however the biggest issue I run into is figuring out what to serve our guests. This is why I’m thankful for sites like Kraft where you can choose from dozens of amazingly easy holiday meal ideas available right now.


Whenever we have people over, I try to have a good variety of dishes, so that everyone, especially those who may have food allergies, can find something they like. After all, with everyone happy and no one’s tummy rumbling your party will kick off to the right start. I know making tray after tray of holiday treats can grow tiring that’s why I love to collect recipes for treats that are fast and simple to make. I also give huge bonus points to delicious recipes that can be made far in advance of parties. This recipe which I found fits the bill. It’s fast, simple, and perfectly fine to make well ahead of time.
