Christmas is already ringing its bells… And we will be preparing both traditional and innovative favorite treats to celebrate this meaningful holiday!! I am sharing with you today my new fave American treat: No Bake Chocolate Candy Cane Cheesecake Cookies… Yummmm!!!!
These chocolate candy cane cheesecake cookies are my new favorite because they don’t require baking, the flavors are Christmasy, and they are festive and quick to prepare. Do you get it? It is not everyday that you find a treat like this… Hon, they are the ultimate treat! 😉
Above all, there is a meaning behind the German candy cane, a red and white cane-shaped hard candy stick flavored with peppermint, and associated with Christmas. Its shape resembles the canes of the shepherds who visited the baby Jesus, while its colors resemble both the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross (red) and his sinless life (white). The candy cane tradition started in 1672, and then spread from its origins in Germany to other parts of Europe, and subsequently, to the United States.
Our chocolate candy cane cheesecake cookies are a great holiday cooking project for children! Mine had a lot of fun mixing, rolling into balls, and decorating them while learning about the candy cane tradition. I am sure that yours will, too.
With these chocolate candy cane cheesecake cookies, we are also commemorating Roxana’s Chocolate Party this month. As you can see below this post, our group prepared many fantastic Christmas cookies especially for you.
Later, I also intend to present a typical Brazilian cookie recipe that is a favorite of mine. I will withhold its name for now because it will be a beautiful surprise for you!
What are your favorite cookies? I’d love to hear about it…
See ya soon in the kitchen!
