Your Zodiac Sign, Your Holiday Treat


Everyone loves holiday treats. From super sweet peppermint to salty caramel, they’re all delicious, but which one matches your horoscope?

1. Aries: Christmas Crack, March 21–April 19

Christmas crack is one of the most unknown desserts! It has layers of plain crackers, caramel, chocolate, and toppings of your choice. You can use candy, like M&Ms or crushed candy canes. Like Aries, these treats are a showstopper at any party!

7. Libra: Snicker doodle, September 23–October 23

Instead of Christmas tree cookies, Christmas tree brownies are the treat for Sagittarius. First, you make a brownie in the shape of a Christmas tree and put it in the oven. Then, add some green frosting and add M&Ms on top if you’re feeling fancy. You can also add candy cane sticks and put them at the bottom for the “wood” of the tree. They are the perfect mix of chocolate and sweet frosting, which matches Sagittarius’s mix of personalities. Click here for a link! 

10. Capricorn: Yule Log Cake,  December 22–January 19

Another holiday classic! You probably have heard of Yule log cakes but what really is it?  A yule log cake is broken down into four parts. The first is a cocoa sponge cake, the second is a hazelnut whipped cream, the third is chocolate ganache and the last and final part is the decorations! The yule log cake has a long past, being used to celebrate the end of winter and to honor the Norse God, Thor. Click here for the recipe! 

11. Aquarius: Fruit Cake, January 20–February 18

Fruit Cake is another holiday classic! Fruit Cake has dried fruit in it and sometimes it has nuts. This would be so fun to make with friends and family on a rainy day. Like an Aquarius, the fruit cake is sweet and flavorful and a little nutty Click here for a recipe 


12. Pisces: Christmas Sugar Cookies, February 19–March 20

Decorating cookies with your friends is the best thing! You can make sugar cookies and icing fresh or buy them from the store, and then let your creative juices flow!

    My zodiac sign is Cancer and I don’t care too much for gingerbread houses. My brother’s zodiac is Gemini and he hates eggnog.
