Candy Cane Cookies

Here is one last Holiday treat idea for you all.  We will be making our Christmas cookies this weekend and here is a never favorite on our families list of cookies to bake for Christmas time.  Mint creme and special red holiday oroes turn from good to amazing after they are dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with candy cane pieces.  These are easy to make and taste great too!  They are super fun and festive to make during the holidays and will be a hit at any holiday gathering.  We have made three batches of these so far this year and let’s just say they are a new...

Snowball Surprise – Holiday Gifts For Kids To Give Classmates

Here is a super fun way for your kids to give a holiday time gift to their classmates at school!  By wrapping a little surprise in white tissue and crepe paper you create a darling little snowball surprise for your child to give.  This is a great way to give a holiday gift without it being overly Christmas specific.  If you are worried about being “politically correct”  and trying to give something without offending families who may not celebrate Christmas this is a great idea.  It is just a fun way for kids to wrap and give something to someone that is special to them and...
