Christmas Tree Sugar Cookie Bars

Christmas Tree Sugar Cookie Bars

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!
