The final countdown is on: we’re only five days away from Christmas and I’m still busy running from store to store to find last-minute gifts. Why do I always wait so long and stress myself out? Who knows, but I’m sure I’ll be doing the very same thing at this time next year!
While I am gifting our families with things from their lists, I’m also wrapping up a few homemade goodies, too. I’d had these cookies in mind from the first time I saw Dove advertise their Peppermint Bark Chocolates in the sidebar of MBH. I love Peanut Butter Blossoms, so I knew that these would be a perfect spin on the popular Christmas-time treat.
They’re simple to prepare and kids love to help out when it’s time to place the chocolates on the top of the cookies. They’re also pretty tasty… I may or may not have eaten a few last night.
Beautifully decorated Christmas cookies make a wonderful and impressive gift that are almost too gorgeous to eat. These works of edible art can be mastered at home easily; all it takes is the right tools and a little bit of practice.
