We all know the best thing about holidays is the endless amounts of homemade food. Everyone brings out their cooking a-game and we all benefit! Gooey, chocolatey, warm, minty, dipped, baked, fluffy goodness. Nothing gets better than eating and/or making holiday treats! If you’re looking to get creative and step outside of your usual potluck assignment, check out these recipes to share (or keep to yourself).

Nutella Pretzel Brownies
