[Link Up] Christmas Desserts & Tacky Sweaters!

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

I don't know about you but this link up just brings a smile to my face. When Jamie, Courtney, and I got together to host something this Christmas our original idea was Christmas Cookies & Desserts, but we knew we could make it just a little bit more fun, so...

 the Christmas Desserts & Tacky Sweaters Link Up was born! 

Honestly, it has been making me laugh ever since we landed on it. Just look at those fabulous sweaters above! If that doesn't put you in the Christmas spirit then I don't know what will.

The details of the link up...

Get in the kitchen and whip up one of your favorite Christmas desserts! Don't have one? Don't worry! Find something that looks fabulous and new to try or even go the semi homemade route and decorate some store bought sugar cookies. Anything goes!

Take lots of pictures to share and if you are up for it, snap a picture of you in a delightfully tacky Christmas sweater showing off your dessert as well. Write up a recipe post so we can all try it for ourselves, and then come link it up with either Jamie, Courtney, or myself on December 23rd & 24th. The link up will open at 5am est and close just in time for Santa to make his rounds at 11:59pm est on Christmas Eve. 

Don't forget to leave a little of your Christmas dessert out for Santa to try too!

Not sure if you feel like finding a tacky sweater? All three of us doctored up sweaters we either already owned or nabbed at Goodwill for a few bucks. It doesn't have to be anything complicated, the point is to have a little random Christmas fun with it. But, not to worry about if you'd rather not, you can absolutely link up just a Christmas dessert recipe - no silly sweaters required! 

Not sure what dessert to make this year? Try one of these: incredibly easy oreo cookie trufflesgrasshopper mint chocolate bark (I made this last year and it was a BIG hit)white chocolate topped soft gingerbread cookies, colorful swirl cookies, or reindeer food. Or there's always dipped pretzel rods and dipped strawberries!

We hope to see all of your Christmas treats next week!
