Let’s be honest, most of us don’t have the time to make a Pinterest-perfect Gingerbread house. I’d love to, but I am stressed just thinking about the construction of those cookie walls, and the sticky mess in the kitchen. Let’s just say I’m still having flashbacks from previous Christmas baking projects. Instead, I will be keeping it simple this year, with easy festive treats that are kid-proof and won’t have me reaching for the extra eggnog.
Candy Cane Marshmallows
No real recipe required for this cute little treats. All you need are some large marshmallows, which you dip in melted chocolate and some mini candy canes. It couldn’t be easier.
Bonus item! If you are melting chocolate and crushing candy canes, you might as well make this amazingly delicious bark. It also makes a terrific gift.
These creamy strawberry bites are the cutest little Santa treats ever. They’ll take you just minutes to make, and everyone will love eating these.
Oh, pretzels, where would we be without you? You taste great, and you also make cookies look like reindeers!
Pretzels, once again, you’ve saved Christmas. This ingenious recipe is as simple as it gets. Just, *try* to resist eating them as you make them!
