12 Homemade Desserts That Are Worth Ruining Your Diet For.

On Christmas Eve, I usually bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies. It isn't truly Christmas for me without opening the oven door, taking in that gush of heat, and releasing the heavenly scent of my favorite dessert throughout the entire house. I smell of cookies the rest of the day with pride.

I'm a creature of habit and will bake another dozen or so when the time comes, but I also plan on challenging myself to a larger project. Something a bit more creative. I've come across dozens of recipes, but have narrowed it down to just these twelve.

Take a look at these delightful desserts. Some require no baking time at all while others may take several hours. Challenge yourself to one, or better yet, make one a day for the twelve days of Christmas.

#1. Rudolph Cookies

A simple project perfect for households with children. All you need are cookies, frosting, Nilla wafers, pretzels, red M&M'S, and white (mint) M&M'S for the eyeballs.

#2. Grinch Popcorn

Enjoy this playful popcorn made with marshmallows and M&M'S while watching the film adaptation of How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

#3. Strawberry Christmas Tree Brownie Bites

Though strawberries aren't typically on my grocery list during the holidays, I adore how Tasty Kitchen has incorporated them into this dessert.
