Love to Learn-- The Week We Made All those Yummy Treats!

We had our first family Christmas party this weekend and while we don't exchange gifts with ALL our family members anymore I do like to have just a little something for all the kids.  We try not to spent much money though since it's just a little "thinking of you" gift and I don't ever want them to feel like they need to reciprocate.

I have found that cookie tins or one handmade ornament is just the thing to make all the kids feel included without it really feeling like we went all out on them. 

This year my boys helped me make some super yummy treats and they are so cute.

Oreo reindeer-- Chocolate covered Oreo cookies with pretzel antlers, M&M noses and Wilton candy eyes

Oreo Santas with white chocolate beard, red chocolate hat, M&M nose, Wilton candy eyes, marshmallow pompom, and White chocolate hat trim 

Nutter Butter Penguins-- chocolate covered Nutty Butters with Wilton candy eyes, 1/2 an M&M for the beak, candy bow ties and a Wilton candy melt (un-melted) 
They were a huge hit!
