Baking yummy treats for the holidays can be a fun and rewarding tradition for the whole family.
But if you’re terrible at baking, much like myself, you’d probably rather skip the dirty dishes and buy a delicious dessert instead. Of course, Columbus has your back. Let’s be honest though. Would you expect anything less from this food-obsessed city?
I hope you’re ready to gobble up some desserts. Here are the 7 best holiday treats waiting to be enjoyed by you and your family this December.
Pfeffernüsse Cream Puff from Schmidt’s
There’s no such thing as a bad cream puff from Schmidt’s and the Pfeffernüsse Cream Puff is no exception. Inspired by the traditional German Christmas cookie, this cream puff will leave you feeling warm and cozy.
Ginger Molasses Cookies from Pistacia Vera
Nothing can brighten up a chilly winter day quite like a Ginger Molasses Cookie from Pistacia Vera. You can pair them with one of their holiday beverages for a real “treat yourself” kind of day.
Cocoa Bomb from Donna’s Delicious Dozen
Cocoa Bombs have quickly become a holiday favorite around our house (thanks TikTok) and no one makes them quite like Donna’s Delicious Dozen. Just pop one of these yummy chocolate spheres in a mug and pour over hot milk or water for a delicious holiday treat.
Festive Milkshakes from Graeter’s Ice Cream
Graeter’s Festive Milkshake flavors include Eggnog and Peppermint. Both will keep you in the holiday mood during those random 60-degree December days we’re bound to have here in Columbus.
Peppermint Marshmallows from Fox in the Snow
I know it seems weird to encourage anyone to go and eat marshmallows, but these peppermint dreams from Fox in the Snow totally would be the most delicious treats on their own. They’re made to go into the yummy hot chocolate at the cafe and we won’t count them as calories if you don’t.
Peppermint Chocolate Chip from Nothing Bundt Cakes
Is there anything that comes out of Nothing Bundt Cakes that’s not perfection? Spoiler alert: No. Everything they make is perfect, including this Peppermint Chocolate Chip bundt cake.
Christmas Tree Cakes from Bake Me Happy
So full disclosure, Bake Me Happy doesn’t always have these nostalgic treats. You can check their social media for updates on their seasonal goodies, but I promise, anything you buy there you will enjoy.
Happy Holidays, my friends! Get out there and joy those seasonal flavors.
