Hello, everyone! It has been a while since I’ve written anything here. Hope everyone is doing well. I have wanted to put some goodies together for friends at Christmas and finally decided to do it this year. I asked my sister, Jenny, if she wanted to do this with me, as I thought they would make good gifts for her to give to her friends and her children’s teachers as well. We had fun doing these and I thought I would share the results with you!
I had a friend that came to my rescue with recipes for Hot Cocoa, Buckeyes and Nutter Butter Santas. Thank you, Kara! The Nutter Butter Santas were fun and easy to make. I think they turned out pretty cute!
I found the perfect little tubs to put the Hot Cocoa in. We added crushed peppermints to the cocoa and put a candy cane in each tub, too. Chocolate spoons are always a great way to add even more chocolatey flavor! I liked making these, as well. We added green swirls to some and others has Cinnamon Sprinkles on them. I bet those will taste pretty good in a nice hot cup of cocoa.
Next, we baked Chocolate Chip Cookies and Butter Sugar Cookies and put them in the cutest little boxes. The boxes came with cute stickers to hold the flaps down on them, those were a great idea! You can really find some wonderful packaging for your baked goods. I think I’m going to go shopping after Christmas and see if I can find these items when they are marked down. Then I will have plenty for next year!
I totally forgot to take pictures of the Buckeyes and the fudge. Those were two of the yummiest items to me. I did take pictures of the bags we put them in. I love these Santa’s and Snowmen!
Special thanks to my niece, Brooke, for her help with these yesterday! I hope all of the teachers that receive these enjoy the goodies that are in them. We had a lot of fun making them for you! Please forgive the shameless plug for my blog that my sister and I added to your bag…LOL! If you read this, maybe you will leave me a comment and let me know how everything tasted. It would be greatly appreciated. You may even see your name in one of the photos, too!
I hope everyone out there has a safe and wonderful holiday season. I will be thinking of all of you when we are spending Christmas at Disney World and hopefully getting some new material for this blog!
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Thank You for reading!
