My Top 10 Favorite Holiday Treats For 2018

sweet treats this holiday season


As the 2018 holiday season gets into full swing, and my seasonal sweet-tooth returns, I wanted to share my favorite holiday treats this year! I love Christmas recipes, and even though my New Year’s resolutions will undoubtedly include staying away from sweets, I also know how to make desserts healthier - so all good! ;-)

Then when the holidays are over, I’ll put the desserts on hold for a while and clear out any “over-doing” that may have gone on.

I hope you enjoy these (a bit healthier) treats and let me know after the holidays how you liked them! 

Here are:

My top 10 favorite holiday treats for 2018:

1) Pear Tarte Tatin

One word: YUM. This is at number one because it’s my favorite! Plus I always feel a bit less guilty when fruit is involved! Grab it right here!

2) Dark Chocolate-Pistachio Tart

This is a very, very close second. And what makes it healthy? Pistachios are good for you and dark chocolate has antioxidants. So there! Give it a go and let me know what you think!

3) Chocolate Macaroons

These are chewy, chocolatey deliciousness. I could eat them all in one sitting, but I do like to share. :-)
Check them out right here!

4) Gluten-Free Apple Pie

It seems like this wouldn’t be great, but trust me - this is DELICIOUS!! Give it a try.

5) Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

These are vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, high in fiber - and so so good! This is one of two candy treats I love during the holidays. Plus with the rich ingredients, one is always just enough! (Ok maybe two!)

6) Chocolate Covered Berry Marshmallows 

Another gluten-free goody! This is gooey and scrumptious and I know you’ll love it.

7) Coconut Cake Balls

These are egg-free, nut-free and vegetarian - so safe for anyone who likes coconut and chocolate (that would be me).

8) Java Cupcakes

Espresso + Chocolate = Heaven! And to tout the health benefits, it’s nut-free, soy-free, heart healthy and vegetarian! YUM! Try it right here.

9) Dark Chocolate-Orange Pudding

This may be rich, but guess what? It’s gluten-free, nut-free, and vegetarian. So enjoy!

10) Flourless Chocolate Cookies

These can be kind of addicting, to be honest - but since they’re gluten-free, dairy-free, heart-healthy and low carb, then I don’t beat myself up too much. :-)

Do you have some favorite holiday recipes you can share in the comments? I like to add new ones into the mix, and have more to look forward to when the holiday season rolls around.

And since I’m talking about the holidays, we all know how stressful this time of year can be and I’ve got a great solution for you - it’s my Free Flow Energy Clearing System.

You’ll feel much better and it will be easier to tackle the holidays, so make sure to grab it here.

Happy Holidays!
