This is probably the easiest starter you can do and it will take you no more than 15 minutes to prep and cook.

Christmas Tree Garlic Bread

BBC Good Food
How adorable is this? Not only it is going to be a stunner on the table, it is also really easy to eat and make! This recipe adds a little twist by having mozzarella stuffed in the dough balls but you could change it up and stuff the with marinara sauce, gravy or even sweeten it with some chocolate/jams! Check out the full recipe on BBC Good Food's site!


 Desserts

I know there are some traditional Christmas desserts like the fruit cake but I found some of the cutest dessert, perfect for the holiday season!

This is not only a quick recipe but also so cute to look at! The santa hat is a plus point for the holiday period and you can bring it up a notch by putting it on a cup of hot chocolate! You also need again, just a handful of ingredients to put this together so head over to Delish and get the full recipe!

Hazelnut Christmas Tree

Who doesn't love puff pastries and chocolate? It is deffo an added bonus when it looks like a Christmas tree doesn't it? You can add little pots of different dips like strawberry sauce or even chocolate dips for your guest to add another layer of flavour to this dessert! Check out the recipe on I Am Baker.

Marshmallow Hot Chocolate

This is so awesome! How to make a snowman out of marshmallows to float in your hot chocolate. Fun winter craft activity for kids.
It's Always Autumn

I never enjoyed a hot drink as a dessert until lately so a hot chocolate was naturally one of my picks for a dessert! I chose this recipe because it has a floating snowman! So instead of it just being a typical topping on top, it just makes it a tad special! On top of that, you can consider making a hot chocolate station by having a range of hot chocolate topping for your guest to spice up their drink! Cinnamon sticks, chocolate shavings and candy canes are some of my favourites! Head over to It's Always Autumn for the quick and easy recipe.
