Sifted: Pomegranate Guacamole, Gingerbread Granola + More

Add pomegranate seeds to your guacamole this holiday season.
By: Allison Milam
Hot Links We're Loving:
  • We always thought tomatoes were the only way to add festive red to classic guacamole, but Cookie & Kate proves that saying isn't always the case. If you get your hands on some ripe avocados this holiday season, mash them into Festive Pomegranate Guacamole. Not only do pomegranate seeds add a surprising juicy sweetness, they also add a contrasting ruby red hue that's ideal for holiday entertaining.
  • If chugging rich eggnog by the glass won't sate your yearly craving, bake Dine & Dish's Spiced Eggnog Snack Cake for an added dose. The slathered frosting is made with real eggnog, for a spiced treat will guaranteed to woo eggnog lovers and haters alike.
  • Even the first meal of the day deserves some holiday spirit. Gingerbread Granola by Minimalist Baker is folded with flavors of molasses, ginger, cinnamon and cloves for an authentic gingerbread flavor that's never seen the inside of a latte cup or candy-studded house.
  • Ooey-gooey puffed rice treats are a childhood favorite for a reason, and they're even better when crowned with a layer of cookie dough. Cookies and Cups tops no-bake Cookie Dough Crispy Treats with a milk chocolate ganache for a triple threat treat.
