Sweet Thursday: Christmas & Holly Bloggy Edition

If you’re not hungry and craving sugar, you will be after today’s post! Today is the Christmas/Holly Bloggy edition of Sweet Thursday! For those of you who are new to my blog, Sweet Thursday is my monthly dessert recipe event. Each month bloggers submit desserts that they’d like to have featured here, and each month we have a different theme to follow!

For this month, the theme is Christmas Recipes of course! And today, I’m actually combining Sweet Thursday with the Holly Bloggy After Party. (Sorry to those of you who submitted non-dessert recipes at the Holly Bloggy. Originally I had planned to do Sweet Thursday separate from the Holly Bloggy features, but as we are pressed for time this week, I had no choice but to combine them!)

After you take a look at today’s featured treats, be sure to go over to the Holly Bloggy Recipe Event if you haven’t already. There are a bunch more desserts listed there, as well as other non-sweet Christmas recipes to take a look at.

Next Sweet Thursday Event: Due to my schedule (and a need for a little break), I’m skipping out on Sweet Thursday in January. However, I will have a round up on February 11. For the theme, you have two choices this time: “Winter OR Valentine Desserts.” Send your submission by email at simplysweethome@hotmail.com.
