The holidays are about more than just gifts under the tree and decorations around the house, they are also about the tasty treats you enjoy! Desserts are one of my favourite parts of the holidays season, both eating them *ahem* and making them!

Being not much of a major cook in the kitchen, I'm happy that Kraft Canada has some simple dessert recipes to share with our family and friends this holiday season. What's more, not only are these recipes easy to create with little ingredients, they also make great edible gifts for those like me who are starting to run out of ideas on what to give to friends and family this year for Christmas.

Kraft Canada sent along a fantastic gift basket filled with all kinds of goodies to get us started on creating our very own holiday #DessertMoments, making edible gifts from the heart to share with our family at Christmas this year.

We chose three yummy desserts to create and gift to our friends, Kraft Canada offered to have a photographer come in and take photos of our creations but due to the busy time of year I did my own photography this time ;-) 

Peanut Butter Snowballs 

Not for everyone, but delicious for people who can eat Peanut butter, these are simple to make and quite enjoyable. All you need is Kraft Peanut butter, butter, icing sugar, graham crumbs and semi-sweet chocolate squares. Follow this easy recipe and gift in a festive food container! I have some in the freezer waiting for guests to take home with them, that is if hubby can keep his hands off them! 

Two-Layer Cookie Crunch Fudge

This is probably my favourite out of the three, a delicious fudge recipe using Mr. Christie's Chips ahoy cookies! All you need is Bakers Cocoa dark chocolate, Bakers White chocolate, condensed milk, vanilla extract and three Chips Ahoy! cookies chopped up! Follow this simple recipe and in a couple of hours *letting the fudge set is the only thing that takes long!* you'll be able to cut and wrap up some yummy Two-Layer Cookie Crunch Fudge to gift someone or perhaps e=indulge and enjoy some with your own family!

Salted Chocolate Covered Caramels

One of hubby's favourite holiday treats and the simplest recipe ever - these Salted Chocolate Caramels make excellent edible desserts at the Christmas buffet table and as edible parting gifts. All you need is Kraft Caramels, Bakers semi-sweet chocolate and sea salt! You can find the recipe here, but seriously they are as simple as unwrapping the caramels, melting the chocolate, coating the caramels and adding a dash of sea salt to the tops of each chocolate. I let them set in the freezer and then divided the batch up for giving and eating. Hey, the baker always has to try her goods , no?

Christmas treats can be both yummy and simple to make thanks to Kraft Canada! Share your dessert creations online on Twitter using hashtag #DessertMoments, give others inspiration and maybe find some of your own!
