For our final post for the 12 Days of Sweet Treats I put together a Holiday Cookie Box! Amisha did too, go see her’s here. Also scroll below for cookies, photos of the cookie box, cookie tips + links to all of the recipes!

I realized as we were nearing the end of Sweet Treat fest that I was really focused on peppermint + chocolate and dulce de leche. There are several cookies in the photos below that I haven’t shared yet. The first is the Five-Spice Snickerdoodles — I will post that recipe next week and update this page asap. The second one are the Dulce de Leche Cups (so good!). Stay tuned for both. The final cookie seen in the photos below (that isn’t on the website) are the Burnt Sugar Ginger Cookies that I recently made for Hallmark Home & Family. I will link over to their website below as they shared the recipe.

I had so much fun doing the 12 Days of Sweet Treats + this Holiday Cookie Box with Amisha @thejamlab (http://www.thejamlab.co)…we’re already talking about what we’ll do next year!

Let’s bake + gift a Holiday Cookie Box, shall we?

A friend made this wood box for me (could you die? isn’t it pretty?!)…it would cost a fortune to ship, but I think it would be fab to bust out after dinner with friends in lieu of a more traditional dessert…think of it as an oversized box of chocolates, but with all types of sweet treats, not just truffles!

Dulce De Leche Baci Kisses

These little nuggets are a slice of heaven. The most difficult part is making the dulce de leche from scratch…which isn’t so much difficult as it just takes a bit of time. Otherwise, they’re pretty simple + delicious. For the photos I subbed in pecans for the hazelnuts (since I was out) and they turned out perfect. Make sure you use the weight of the hazelnuts and sub in the exact weight with pecans if you want to do the same swap. Make these!!!

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cups

These dark chocolate cups are filled with a creamy, Oreo-like peppermint filling that’s laced with crunchy bits of crushed peppermint candies. They also require zero special equipment and are done in under an hour. You will become addicted to them year round (like I am!).

Five-Spice Snickerdoodles

These cookies are super soft, light and chewy with the slightest crispiness around the edges. All of the classic hallmark flavors and textures of a snickerdoodle are here, with a bit of five-spice powder to give them some jazzy hands.

Burnt Sugar Muscovado Truffles

These are bananas delicious! More burnt sugar, more dipping things in chocolate. Your life will forever be changed by these nuggets and I’m not even remotely exaggerating. You’ll see.

Some cookies are better to give in person and others will be perfectly fine crossing the country. These are some of the shipping guidelines I use to figure out which cookies to ship, which sweet treats I’d like to gift to friends and family closer to home and the best way to get them wherever they’re headed!

  • Soft envelopes are strictly verboten when shipping cookies;
  • All cookies must be wrapped to ensure freshness;
  • Ship the fastest method you can afford;
  • Go for sturdy cookies (typically drop cookies are best);
  • Steer clear of soft frostings or glazes.
  • Whatever packaging you pick, make it worthy of the beautiful cookies that are going inside.
