Favorite Christmas Party Recipes

For this month’s The Cooking Housewives Favorite Christmas Party Recipe Round-up, I’m sharing a favorite treat, Peppermint Cookies with White Chocolate.

White Chocolate with Peppermint Cookies

Peppermint Cookies with White Chocolate are just the kind of Christmas cookie that I enjoy.  They aren’t too large, they are flavorful, and they melt in your mouth.  My husband and father-in-law can’t get enough of these when I bake them.

More Christmas Party Recipes


Every year at Christmas, my mom serves Hot Virginia Dip and it’s now my go-to appetizer to serve at a party or gathering.  You’ll go home with an empty dish when you serve this!

Cheese Slaw is another favorite appetizer.  My friends frequently request that I make this when I’m invited to a party.

You’ll find more appetizer ideas here.

Christmas Cookies

Cookies are perfect treat to take to a party, to the office to share with coworkers, or to give to neighbors at Christmas.

Butterscotch Pecan Pretzel Brittle is perfect to package in cellophane bags tied with a bow for a neighbor gift.

Every year at Christmas my grandmother made Peanut Butter Bars.  These taste like a Reese’s Cup and are so good.  My husband takes a platter of these to work every Christmas when his office has goodie day.

If you want to make a unique cookie, try Bischochitos, a cookie popular in New Mexico.  My friend always brings a bag of these to me after a New Mexico vacation and I liked them so much that I found a recipe so that I can make them whenever the craving strikes.

There are many more cookie recipes to browse here.

Enjoy the Christmas Party Recipes shared this month by The Cooking Housewives!


    1. Thank you, Emily! They melt in your mouth. It’s snowing here today and I think baking a batch of these is on my “must do” list.


  1. I made the peppermint cookies with white chocolate and they are amazing, but I have a question. The recipe says to add the flour and the next two ingredients, but there is only 1 ingredient left other than the crushed peppermints which is says to add next. Am I missing something?

    1. Thank you so much for pointing this out, Debbie. I’ve updated the recipe to include a missing ingredient, 1/2 tsp of baking soda. I’m glad that they still tasted great without the baking soda. I appreciate you asking this and I’m glad that you enjoyed the recipe.

  2. I made your cookies and they are awesome. Your recipe says to add the next 2 ingredients to the flour, but I only saw one listed other than the peppermints. Did I miss an ingredient?
