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?
Here are the 11 best holiday treats waiting to be gobbled up by you and your family this December.
Peppermint Cream Puff from Schmidt’s

Egg Nog Ice Cream from Simply Rolled
Why hasn’t eggnog always been served in ice cream form? Seriously, this changes everything.
Cocoa Buttermilk Cake from Pistacia Vera
Rich. Flavorful. Moist. Anyone who knows me knows that I hate that word. That’s how good this cake is. I’m using the word moist.

Keep it old school with these gingerbread cookies. Plus, they’re not just tasty. They’re also adorable.

Rum and cake… Two of my favorite things in one place.
