  1. Chocolate Orange Cupcakes
  2. Peppermint Bark
  3. Salted Caramel Ice Cream with Brown Butter Crumbs
  4. Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
  5. Cranberry, White Chocolate and Orange Blondies
  6. Chocolate Pareil Meringues
  7. Ginger Cake with Caramel Sauce and Pumpkin Ice Cream
  8. Peppermint Marshmallows
  9. Spiced Creme Brulee
  10. Gingerbread Cookies & Cream Cake
  11. White Chocolate Cream Puffs
  12. Golden Cupcakes

This mini ebook is completely 100% free for my readers. It’s my holiday gift to you guys, as a thank you for being such loyal readers.

Before we begin though, I will point out some nifty tricks within the book. You can actually click each recipe on the Table of Contents page (seen above), and it will actually take you to the page where the recipe is.

Similarly, you can use the final page of the ebook to (1) visit my blog by clicking the logo and (2) share the ebook on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest by clicking on the social media icons:

And of course, the writing and photography is by yours truly. The recipes come from a variety of sources. Some were reimaginations of my favorite stocking stuffers like peppermint candy canes, Terry’s Chocolate Orange, and Ferrero Rocher bonbons. Others pay tribute to Christmas traditions and memories from my friends and family, while some are inspired and guided by some of my favorite bakeries, like Miette in San Francisco and Baker & Spice in Portland, Oregon. One recipe, for Golden Cupcakes, even pays homage to the Christmas carol that the book is named for.

Without further ado, here is sneak preview of what’s inside the book. You can click on each image to enlarge, but that’s really just a taste —  you can download the high quality, PDF format of the book by using the button at the end of the preview:

It’s my hope that there’s something for everybody in this book, and that these desserts make your life a little easier and your Christmas a little merrier.
