Wow! Christmas is almost here!
I really can’t believe it. Our kitchen renovation has had me a wee-bit distracted.
But I wanted to take a second to share with you some easy Christmas recipes.
First up is these chocolate-covered-marshmallows-on-pretzels-thingies.
A friend of ours made these at our sons’ piano recitals, and the boys just loved them.
They were easy to pick up and delicious to eat.
I made some for Adam’s classroom party the next week, and they loved them too.
You basically stick two mini-marshmallows on the end of a pretzel stick and dip it in melted chocolate, then add sprinkles, and Voila!
Another recipe I love to make our these marshmallow-cornflake-holly-berry-thingies.
These are so festive and beautiful on a Christmas table. Plus, they taste great!
It’s basically like making rice krispy treats.
I melted 1/2 stick of butter in a sauce pan, added a bag of marshmallows and let them melt together. Then I added a ton of green food coloring to get that deep green color. You can add a teaspoon of vanilla too, but I was out of it.
Then you add 3 cups of corn flakes mix them with the marshmallow mixture. Spoon some of the mix onto wax paper and had a few red hots to the top. Then let cool.
How easy is that?!
Warning: These treats will turn your tongue green.
Tomorrow night the boys and I will be making our buckeyes. This is a tradition that I will never skip. I’ve been making them as long as I can remember. Over 30 years at least.
The boys love making them too. We leave buckeyes for Santa Claus.
Lastly, every year I share this link again…
We call it “Snow”. It’s basically white chocolate covered popcorn with M&M’s. It is delicious!!!
Such a great little snack to have around at Christmas time.
I like to bag it up and give it as a little gift!

As a side note, we are almost finished with the kitchen. I hope to show you how I’ve decorated my shelves for Christmas by tomorrow or Saturday.
Until then, I hope you are enjoying this season, and I pray that you would feel God’s love for you in a fresh way today.
