That ornament is sooo cute! My favorite holiday treat is a yummy ol' sugar cookie with lots of icing! Boring, I know, but you just can't beat a Christmas tree shaped cookie with sweet, buttery frosting. :)

I have to say that being from Czech origin, my grandmother always made PoppySeed Kolaches for every holiday.. I would look forward to being at her home every Christmas Eve, so that I could stock up on Poppyseed, Apricot, Prune and even Cream Cheese. My grandmother and Papa both past this past Jan31/Feb1 and I will greatly miss them and their traditions. This year, I plan to make homemade Poppy Seed Kolaches and keep the tradition and memories alive.

Adorable Cupcake!

Chocolate peanut butter fudge is my absolute favorite holiday sweet. Just typing the words makes my mouth water. And, even though I could make this all the time I always save it for the holidays because it is something we make as a family. Yummo!

Oh - that cupcake is soooo darn cute!!

My very favorite holiday treat is Caramel Brie - and it's sooo stinkin' easy.

One wedge of brie
1/2 C (or so) of crushed pecans
3 or 4 pecan halves
2 c. sugar
1/4 c water

Dip cut edges of cheese in crushed pecans. Really press them into the cheese so they stick.

I arrange 3 or 4 pecan halves decoratively on top.

Set the cheese on a wire rack over a foil lined baking sheet.

In a heavy sauce pan, melt the sugar and water - DO NOT STIR - cooking until it is an amber color and at the "hard crack" stage on a candy thermometer.

Slowly pour the caramel over the cheese (BE CAREFUL!!) tipping the rack a bit so it runs down the sides. (You want lots of caramel on the sides)

It quickly hardens (like a candy apple) and is DELISH.

You have to crack the candy coating with your cheese knife, and the combination of sweet and salty is so yummy - plus it's kind of fun to eat.

Mmmmmm.
