While we all try our hardest to be healthy year round – the holidays are the one time you shouldn’t have to worry about counting calories. Let yourself indulge a bit – you deserve it! Just don’t eat any of these amazing desserts all by yourself and you’ll be back on track in no time.
Chocolate Pecan Piecake
There’s nothing that screams Thanksgiving more than pecan pie – but how about adding a new, delicious, chocolate-y twist on a classic dessert! Check out the directions here!
Thanksgiving Turkey Cake
Bring this centerpiece cake to any gathering and instantly become the most sought after holiday guest! Created by Buddy Valastro aka “Cake Boss” this cake is a bit more involved but just think of the Instagram possibilities when you’re done! Get the recipe here!
Apple and Sweet Potato Tart
Try this when you’re all chocolate-d out and need something that at least has some form of fruits and vegetables included. If that doesn’t sell you on this, perhaps the brandy pecan glaze will! Get instructions here.
For those of you who aren’t big bakers all you need for these adorable little guys is basic candy already packaged up for you. Check out how to make them here!
Apple Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Icing
After baking some spice cupcakes and smothering them in butter cream icing, I’ll try anything with “spice” in the title. Just pour everything in a loaf pan and you’re good to go! See how to here!
Personally, I plan on giving at least a few of these a try – Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks for family, friends and good snacks. Treat yo self!
