15 Festive Christmas Treats and Katiedid Designs Giveaway Winners!!

15 Festive Christmas Treats @

Are you like me and always realize too late before a holiday party that you have nothing to bring…..again? Or just the plain ‘ol boring thing you brought last time? I always get so bogged down this time of year, that I forget to search for fun and yummy desserts to throw in my Tupperware and slap out on the treat table to share. I love having fun and tasty things to share…always makes me smile (and sharing means you won’t gain as much holiday weight).

Here’s a list of fantastic treats I found of things that I definitely want to try….soon.
