Christmas Cookies!

Well I did it! This weekend I got way into the holiday spirit and did some serious baking! Now remember, I use the term “baking” lightly. Everything I made came from a package, but I thought that was in the best interest of my recipients. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  And it’s the thought that counts right?

Batch #1

I love these holiday bites. I make them every year because they require no baking, and they have the perfect salty/sweet ratio!

Simply top pretzels with Rolos, put them in the oven for about 4 minutes, take them out and top with a holiday M&M.

I certainly cannot takeย  all the credit, but O.M.G are these delicious! They are chewy and crunchy and perfect with a cup of cocoa. Katy Crocker is an impeccable chef. ๐Ÿ™‚

They actually taste like hot chocolate! They are gooey, sticky, and such a fun twist on the original. Got to love Pinterest and their inspiration. ๐Ÿ™‚

After the kitchen was destroyed everything was done, I wrapped them in parchment paper, stored them in containers,ย  and into the freezer they went. I have never frozen cookies before, so I really hope they don’t go bad.
