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.
German Spice Cookie Cream Puff from Schmidt’s
There’s no such thing as a bad cream puff from Schmidt’s and this month’s special Cream Puff is no exception. Inspired by the traditional German Christmas cookie, this cream puff will leave you feeling warm and cozy. Plus, $1 from every puff sold will be donated to Charity Newsies.
Eggnog Custard Tart from Pistacia Vera
There’s no holiday dessert quite like an eggnog custard tart, and no one does eggnog-based desserts better than Pistacia Vera. If you want to double down on the holiday vibes, you can also snag yourself the cookie butter latte.
Donut Christmas Tree from Donna’s Delicious Dozen
Want an edible Christmas tree this year? Just pop by Donna’s Delicious Dozen for this unique holiday treat. It’s perfect for parties and gatherings and they can easily be ordered online.
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.
Andes 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 made with Andes mints.
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.
