Holiday Baking: Something Old, Something New

Try these festive holiday confections for a change this year.

Sweet Surprises

Chocolate Peppermint Cake

A feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds, this gorgeous cake is truly a gift.

Gingerbread Forest

Why settle for little gingerbread people when you can create a whole gingerbread scene? Gingerbread is surprisingly easy to work with -- and the final result is delicious.

Holly Leaf Linzer Cookies

Traditional linzer cookies use raspberry jam as a filling. In this unique recipe, we cut the cookies into the shape of holly leaves, with the raspberry jam peeking through berry-shaped cutouts.

Sweet Potato Cheesecake

Dress up an old favorite with down-home Southern flair. A mixture of ricotta and orange sweet potatoes gives this cheesecake its unique lightness.

Cookie Fondue

This fondue is ready in 5 minutes for a fun new holiday cookie presentation.

Lacy Chocolate Cranberry Orange Wafers

Cranberry and orange work well together, as do chocolate and orange -- the three come together in these delicate, delicious morsels.

Coconut-Topped Brownies

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas with these "snow-topped" treats.

Meringue Snowflakes

These delicate cookies melt in your mouth. The decorating sugar gives the snowflakes a little extra sparkle.

Christmas Berry Trifle

This easy-to-make trifle is a real showstopper. It's chock-full of three types of berries and chopped bittersweet chocolate.

Chocolate Covered Cinnamon Candy Canes

Gorgeous enough for the tree and yummy enough for the holiday meal.

Buche de Noel

A holiday tradition in France, this pretty, log-shaped jelly roll cake gets decorated with chocolate-dipped hazelnuts and currants.

Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

Give the oven a rest and get the chills out with this festive and warming beverage. Cinnamon is a regular partner for chocolate in Mexican cuisine.
