Delicious Treats for your Holiday Shindig!

I've been finding a lot of yummy ideas for holiday treats (don't you love Pinterest??). See, my husband is definitely the chef, but I like to take care of the sweet sugary stuff. We like to gather recipes and ideas for the Bed & Breakfast we hope to have some day. Here are some delicious ideas I've gathered for your holiday shindigs (and if you're lactose intolerant like me, you can substitute with rice milk and still maintain consistency):

Christmas Tree Veggie & Cheese Tray
...Cause you need at least one healthy snack!

Gingerbread Cheesecake Bites

Cinnamon Sugar Pecans

Hot Chocolate Bar

Homemade Apple Cider

1 gallon of apple juice (100% apple juice) 
½ gallon of pineapple juice 
1 cinnamon stick 
5 clove pieces 
½ t. nutmeg 
1 orange, sliced 
juice of 1 lemon
½ c. sugar 

Combine all ingredients in a big pot on the stove and simmer for 2-3 hours. Or in a large crock pot for 2 hours on high, then turn to low or ‘keep warm’ and can be left on all day. (Favorite method is in the crock pot.)
