7 Copycat Starbucks Holiday Recipes That Taste Like the Real Thing

With the holidays just around the corner, I can’t help but be excited about the holiday drinks and desserts at Starbucks. Even though I’m a Starbucks lover, let’s be honest, making just a few trips to Starbucks a week can become pretty expensive.

That’s why I’ve decided to round up a list of copycat Starbucks holiday recipes. This roundup doesn’t only include drinks like the classic pumpkin spice latte, but also tasty desserts such as cranberry bliss cookies, and pumpkin bread.

These drink and dessert recipes will not only be yummy but add to your fall and winter vibes.
