Christmas Tree Dip

This Christmas Tree Dip is a party headliner. Layers of scrumptious, bold Mediterranean flavors make it addictive … and its cute holiday “tree” shape makes it the centerpiece of any buffet. But, luckily, it’s quick and easy to whip up. (We’re talking 10 minutes here – seriously!) So, you definitely won’t mind when everyone requests that you make it year after year!

Mint Chocolate Fudge (Christmas Fudge)

This super-easy Mint Chocolate Fudge will definitely put the holly-jolly in your holidays. It’s deeply chocolate-y, with a kiss of festive mint. And, it’s all prettied-up with an optional {but highly recommended} decorative swirl. Sensational for Christmas … but trust me on this … you’ll want to try my hack for keeping a little stockpile of “freezer fudge” for chocolate emergencies all year long, too!
