No-bake Holiday Treats: Take 2!

Last year around this time, I posted an entire week of no-bake holiday recipes. Man, it was a lot of work... making a new recipe each evening when I got home from work, then photographing and writing a blog post about it that night. But it was also a lot of fun! I love sharing easy ideas that will make your holiday parties and get-togethers simpler and more enjoyable. I know this is not really a recipe blog, but I sure love my treats! (And no-bake treats are just so easy and satisfying... plus everyone and their dog already shares regular baked goods recipes, I like to do something different!)

So, after thinking long and hard about it, I've decided to run "A Week of No-Bake Holiday Treats" again this year! Yay!

But this year will be a little different. You see, I used up SEVEN of my go-to no-bake recipes last year. I just don't know if I can come up with seven more on my own.

That's where you come in! I want YOU to share your favorite (no-bake) holiday treats on my blog! Yes, I'm looking for guest bloggers to share a recipe and write up a post about it. I will run your guest posts on December 10-16, just in time for all the Christmas and holiday parties coming up.

To get your gears turning, here are the yummies I shared on my blog last year:

So do you want to participate? I'm sure you have a special family recipe that you make every year... or maybe a regional favorite... or even a brand new recipe that you just love! Remember, this would be great publicity for your blog (I'll definitely share a link!) and its always so much fun to share new recipes with each other!

Here are the rules:
* You don't need to be a blogger to do a guest post. You just have to have a good no-bake recipe!

* Recipes that qualify as "no-bake" must not use the oven. They can require heating over the stove or in the microwave, but no actual baking is allowed!

* I need proposals by next Monday, Nov. 28 at 8pm CST. After that time, I will email you to let you know whether your recipe was accepted.

* If your recipe is accepted, I will need your guest post and photographs by Wednesday, December 7. Recipe posts will run on my blog from December 10-16.

To send a proposal:
Send an email to amanda.brekhus@gmail.com with the following information:
* Name of treats and brief description
* URL to your blog (if you have one!)

That's it! Super simple!

I really hope this will generate lots of interest! If I don't get any volunteers to write guest posts, I just don't know if I'll be able to do it again on my own!


  1. This looks like fun! I wish I had a no bake recipe to guest post...but I will be checking for the ones that are posted!

    I'd love for you to link up and share: http://tutusandteaparties.blogspot.com/2011/11/pinteresting-linky-party-week-fourteen.html

  2. That sounds really fun. I can't wait to check back and see great items are included in your no bake holiday treat week.

  3. Oh those goodies from last year sure look good! I do have some no bake treat recipes up my sleeve. If you need some, or need another guest post, email me!

    Happy Thanksgiving Amanda!

  4. My mom makes those wreaths! Love them!!
