2nd Annual Christmas Desserts and Tacky Sweaters Link Up

Thursday, November 19, 2015

I don't know about you but the idea of this link up just brings a smile to my face. When Jamie, Courtney, and I got together to host this last year, our original idea was just 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 last year. Just look at those fabulous sweaters above! If that doesn't put you in the Christmas spirit then I don't know what will. And this year, we're lucky enough to have Whitney co-host with us!

Here are 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, Whitney, or myself on December 3rd. The link up will open at 6am EST on Dec. 3rd and close just in time for Santa to make his rounds at 11:59pm EST on Christmas Eve. And don't forget to share those yummy recipes on social media as well using #sweetsandsweaters15 !

Don't forget to make a little extra so you have some to leave out for Santa to try too!

Not sure if you feel like shopping for a tacky sweater? No problem! Doctor up a sweater you already have and have fun with it! It doesn't have to be anything complicated, the point is to have a little 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 sweater required!

Not sure what dessert to make? Try one of these: peppermint sugar cookies with cream cheese frosting, grasshopper mint chocolate bark (I made this last year and it was a BIG hit), Christmas crunch, gingerbread cheesecake bites, or pretzel hugs.

We hope to see all of your Christmas treats in two weeks!
