5 Festive Christmas Treats

Let me be honest, one of my favorite parts of December are the festive Christmas treats and sweets. Some of my family’s deepest traditions include certain foods, or the experience of making them together. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve passed these traditions on to my kids, too. While we have our favorites, we are always open to making new fun treats. As I was working on this post, my youngest spied the reindeer gingerbread cookies below, and requested they be added to our holiday baking list. So, grab a little helper and head to the kitchen to enjoy these 5 Festive Christmas Treats!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Broccoli Cheese soup is a winter staple at our house. On those chill-you-to-the-bone cold days, I make broccoli cheese soup. Paired with a homemade loaf of bread, it is cold weather comfort food perfection. This homemade broccoli cheese soup recipe is very easy to whip up–even if you’ve never made homemade soup before! Eat your heart out Panera.

Homemade Broccoli Cheese Soup; easy and delicious!

Homemade Broccoli Cheese Soup

Ingredients:

  • One small onion chopped finely
  • One stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 2 cups Milk (can substitute with heavy creamy)
  • 2- 32 oz cartons of Chicken Stock (or Homemade Chicken Stock if you have it)
  • 2 Bags of Frozen Broccoli or Fresh Broccoli chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 pound of Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Directions:

On medium heat, saute chopped onion in 1 stick of butter until onion is clear.

Add 1/2 cup flour and whisk continuously for about 2 minutes until golden brown.

Slowly add 2 cups of milk and whisk well. Once the lumps are dissolved in the milk, add 2 containers of chicken stock. Simmer about 20 minutes.

Add 2 bags of frozen broccoli or fresh chopped broccoli if you prefer. Simmer up to 20 minutes or until broccoli is soft.

If you need to thicken your soup, add a tablespoon of cornstarch and water in a bowl. Mix well and add it to the soup mixture. Boil for 1 minute.

Add 1/2 to 1 pound of shredded cheese, stirring until melted.

Serve.
