7 Super Easy and Cute Christmas Treats

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.
