We Bring You The Gift Of...Food!

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas with loved ones and lots of delicious food!! I know I sure did! This year, money is a little tight (with buying a house and all...), so we decided to make a bunch of edible treats and give them away instead. We made a good assortment!

"Reindeer Chow"
Lots of Chex, peanut butter, melting chocolate, and powdered sugar.

Peanut Butter cookies. But not just any peanut butter cookie...

We dipped one or two sides in dipping chocolate and crushed peanuts.

This is brownie batter with choclate chip cookies.

They turned out looking like this!

Yum...


And this is your good old fashioned sugar cookie with sprinkles, compliments of Michaels mom. She had some extra dough and lots of sprinkles to spare!


We also made some plain chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies with chocolate kisses in the middle but I forgot to get pictures of them.

We gave away these yummy treats in cute tin cans...


...and also on these plates.



So far we have gotten lots of compliments on them! I'm really glad people didn't mind that that was what we were giving away and that they are being enjoyed!

Three of these recipe ideas were found at www.bakerella.com.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
