The kids all love snowballs, the big kids at heart love snowballs, and now, here’s a snowball that everyone in between can love too (even if there’s no snow to be found): a perfectly wintery snowball float recipe! Let me just say that if you’re a sweets lover, then this has your name all over it. Honestly, how can you say no to a recipe with homemade vanilla soda you made on your own?
I’ve also decided that I’m officially SodaStream’s number one, self proclaimed spokesperson because I’m obsessed. I stopped drinking sodas almost four years ago and I reverted strictly to carbonated water since (coconut sparkling water is my jam!), and this is like heaven just opened up to give me all of the flavored sparkling water in the land… forever. Technically I haven’t run out of CO2 yet, but when that happens I’ll be sure to notify you of my mental breakdown. Until then, I have my machine sitting at the front of my kitchen cabinet so I can make drinks without even having to take it out. Don’t judge me…

To help you with the age old question of what the heck to do with all things sweet that doesn’t consist of devouring them in one bite, I teamed up with Shari’s Berries to bring you four creative ways to display desserts this holiday season. Surprisingly, there are no real DIY’s involved because you can literally just whip these up with things you already have or a quick trip to the craft store (or Amazon, in case you’re addicted like me)…
Behind every great hostess is a trick up their sleeve (at least this is what I tell myself), and these two simple, 5 Minute hors d’oeuvres with potato chips, Kettle Brand to be exact, are definitely a good trick to have on hand during the holidays. Why? Because half of the ingredients you can toss in a bowl since everyone loves kettle chips, and the other half you can dress to impress like these smoked salmon cream cheese and blackberry feta crisps.
Click through for the full recipe for each one, but trust me when I tell you they really only take five minutes, all you have to do is assemble!
