With winter break fast approaching, that means more time on your hands for holiday fun. If you’re bored with basic chocolate chip cookies, or just want an excuse to get some friends together for a baking party, try some of these fun and festive recipes.

Oreo Truffles

These truffles are heavenly goodness in a bite size piece. Super simple and quick to make, they’re great for school or holiday parties, and will be a hit with everyone. Put some colored sprinkles or use white chocolate instead for a more festive take.

Reindeer Chow

At first glance this recipe doesn’t look super appetizing, but trust me, it is. It’s basically Chex Mix covered in white chocolate. Think of it as a holiday puppy chow. If you’re not a fan of white chocolate, milk or dark chocolate will work fine also. This would be a really fun recipe to do with younger siblings or relatives.

Peppermint Patties

If you want to go a little bit old-school, try making these homemade peppermint patties. They only use four ingredients, so it’s a snap to make. Plus, these are something you can’t just buy at the store; you can roll them into shapes of your own.

Chocolate Prune Bundt Cake with Coconut Glaze
For those a little bit more ambitious, this decedent cake is for you. Though the cake itself is fairly simple, the figs add a really nice depth of richness. What really set this apart though are all the opportunities that the recipe offers for decoration, with the coconut glaze, raspberries, candy canes, and chocolate drizzles. It’s sure to impress.
