We’re going Christmas treat crazy at this house. So far we’ve made Ooey Gooey Chex Treat, Nutter Butter Snowmen, and Candy Cane Blossoms, just to name a few!
A few weeks ago I shared this fun recipe for “Deck the Halls with the Crafting Chicks.” And I wanted to share it here just in case you missed it over there! My kids loved making this new treat this year – Christmas Tree Sugar Cookie Bars. They could decorate the trees however they wanted using M&M’s, sprinkles, and Sixlets. The pretzel sticks were a cute little touch!
