16 Christmas Treats and a Linky Party!

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the food, especially the Christmas treats and sweets!  Over the next several weeks I’m excited to have some fantastic guest bloggers here to share their holiday recipes with us, as part of my Six Treats of Christmas Treats event!  To kick things off, I’ve compiled a fun list of Christmas cookies, bars, and candies that I think you will love!

There’s also a linky at the end of this post, where I invite you to link up your own treats!  All holiday sweets and treats and welcome, as well as drinks and appetizers. The linky will be open through New Year’s, and I’ll be featuring some of my favorites here, so link up as many as you’d like (old posts and new) and have fun!
