Ah, the delicious smells and tastes of the holidays. The warm, spicy scent of gingerbread. That first bite of just-out-of-the-oven Christmas cookies. Rich hot chocolate with marshmallows and melting whipped cream.
But why should winter have all the fun?
We’ve whipped up five cool summer versions of warm holiday favorites, so you can enjoy a little Christmas cheer any time of year.
Here are 5 sweet treats to beat the heat:
1. Frozen Hot Chocolate
2. Eggnog Milkshake
Good eggnog is already pretty thick and creamy, but this Eggnog Milkshake is simply out of this world!
3. Candy Cane Ice Cream In A Bag
Enjoy some simple Vanilla ice cream with a huge kick of peppermint and crushed candy canes!
4. Fruit Pizza
Fruitcake may not be everyone's favorite Christmas dessert, but pizza is universally loved. Why not combine the two with this sweet fruit pizza that lets you add your favorite fruit and homemade cream-cheese icing to a giant sugar-cookie!
5. No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies
No need to turn on the oven with these delicious no-bake peanut butter cookies. We highly recommend adding the cocoa powder to this one!
