With the holidays approaching, I have to be honest with you all: I cannot stop looking at all the delicious Christmas recipes out there!
I love food, that’s no secret, and though I eat very healthy, I also enjoy finding new not-so-healthy recipes to make as gifts, or to recreate in a healthy way.
Recently, I was looking over some pretty quirky takes on Christmas recipes, and this got me thinking that perhaps, sometimes the most traditional recipes are the best.
Sure, it doesn’t hurt to make something healthier or try something new, but when it comes to certain Christmas recipes, sometimes the oldies really are the goodies!
So, I’ve collected 9 of my favorite classic Christmas recipes I think every woman needs to know.
Whether you eat them or not, they make great dishes to share with others, take to a party or serve to your hearty eaters in the family.
I hope you enjoy and do be sure to share any links to recipes you make every year as well!

After all, nothing says Christmas like peppermint and chocolate- yum!
Serves: 16 squares of 1 inch pieces of fudge

1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 1/2 cups regular, dark, or dairy-free chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
5 candy canes

Set aside.Over a double boiler on simmer, heat the the condensed milk and coconut oil together until the oil is melted.
Mix in the extracts until combined.
Place the candy canes in a gallon sized plastic bag and crush with a cup or something hard until the candy canes are in bit sized pieces.
You could also use a high powered food processor here.
Pour into a strainer to sift out the tiny flakes of peppermint.
Sprinkle the crushed candy canes (about 1/2 cup) on top of the fudge.
Place in the fridge to chill and set for at least 3 hours before cutting into squares.
