Not only delicious, these cupcakes are also healthy, with walnuts, raisins, and freshly peeled carrots. Talk about sneaking in a serving of veggies!

Marbled Egg Sugar Cookies
While sugar cookies are a holiday favorite, we simply love this creative decorating idea from Good Housekeeping. Set up a workspace on your kitchen island countertop and give it a light dusting of all-purpose flour from your kitchen pantry cabinet. You will also need to pull up your heavy duty mixer to make the dough. For the recipe and instructions for Marbled Egg Sugar Cookies from Good Housekeeping, click here. Roll out the dough a quarter-inch thick and cut into festive egg shapes with a cookie cutter. Bake in the oven at 350° for 10-12 minutes, and cool the cookies before following the instructions for decorating. The end result will be delicious, one of a kind, swirly works of art!
This innovative idea comes from Food and Family. Fun to make, and fun to eat, Chocolate Nests call for Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate and crunchy chow mein noodles, but you can also substitute pretzel sticks or rice cereal if that’s what you have on hand in your kitchen pantry cabinet. Other sweet ingredients include mini marshmallows and butterscotch chips. You’ll also need custard cups or a muffin tin to use as a mold for your nests. Refrigerate until set and fill your nests with candy coated chocolate pieces or jelly beans before serving. For the recipe and instructions from Food and Family, click here.
