My holiday baking is underway, and I couldn’t be more excited. I was BORN rockin’ the Christmas season. LITERALLY. (My birthday is December 25th). Even though my kids are getting older and roll their eyes at some of my “cutesy” Christmas goodies, I still bake them with love. These projects allow me to express my
craziness creativity in the kitchen in a socially acceptable way.
My first three holiday “baking” projects don’t actually involve turning the oven on at all. They’re all made using just the stovetop or microwave along with some fun candy embellishments. They’re perfect for kids to help with, since they love “decorating” the treats. Plus, if you still have any Halloween candy left over (yeah, I know – unlikely) it’s a good way to use it up.
Last year, I compiled my creations here: 25 Days of Christmas Treats. My goal this year? 25 new Christmas treats in December. Don’t worry – I don’t eat them all myself. I give them to friends and neighbors, send them to my husband’s office – whoever will eat them. This year, I’ll be featuring them on the Mommysavers Christmas Recipes pages again as well as here on Frugal Bites.
Have a request? Let me know! I’m looking for even more ideas for cute Christmas cookies and treats. I really want to find a cute Elf cookie to go along with all the Elf on the Shelf Ideas I’ve seen. Anyone have a suggestion? Leave it in the comments below!
