Christmas Yummies...

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, December 06, 2011

It's that time of year again... Christmas end of year functions at every turn, children needing plates of food to take to school, and that desire to make some delicious treats for your neighbours, children's school teachers, and especially friends and family for Christmas celebrations.

I love things that are tasty, simple and quick to make.  If you are in the mood to make something, here is a collection of a few of my most favourite goodies to bake/cook at Christmas time, previously shared on my blog.

Sweet Things
Peppermint Bark - My most favourite Christmas treat to make... this stuff never last long in our household.

Coconut Ice - The ideal Christmas time treat.  Quick and easy to make and keeps for ages in the refrigerator.  I always roll mine into balls and dip in shredded coconut.  Fabulous as a Christmas gift.

Chocolate Truffles - another favourite treat of mine to whip up and keep in the refrigerator until needed.  Another great Christmas gift.

Chocolate Licorice Truffles - need I say more... these are so good!!

Gingerbread Christmas Biscuits  & Spicy Dutch Biscuits - perfect for using your Christmas shaped cookie cutters on.

Coconut Haystacks - A great Christmas treat, especially when the tops or bottoms are dipped in melted chocolate!

Lolly Slice - A fabulous Christmas version of this is made by adding chopped walnuts, cherrys and marshmallows.  Even more fun rolled into balls!

Odd-Fellow Roll - The peppermints make this ideal for Christmas, or you could even try making with crushed candy canes!

Vanilla Coconut Cake - A great basic cake or cupcake recipe, perfect for adding other flavours and so quick and simple to make and even freeze for later.  Just for Christmas, pop a candy cane on top of cupcakes made with this recipe.

Banoffi Pie - a delicious Christmas dessert!

Marshmallow Plums - Such a cute little dessert, wonderful for Christmas celebrations.

Oaty Pancakes - the perfect thing for Christmas or Boxing Day brunch, especially good knowing that oats are involved after all that naughty Christmas eating!

Blue Vein, Broccoli & Mushroom Quiche - a perfect dish for Christmas.

Potato Salad - my go to dish, especially good for preparing the day before.  Best dish to go with the classic Kiwi Christmas BBQ.

Kiwifruit Maranade - A classic New Zealand maranade for meat, this one is delicious and easy to prepare.

Drinks & Dips
Roquamole Dip - A deliciously strong dip, great for serving with corn chips.

Iced Coffee - only the best ice coffee recipe in the world!  I love serving this with ice cream or whipped cream.
