12 Days of Christmas Tradition: Day 9 – Christmas Goodies

One of the Christmas traditions that I absolutely love is baking goodies for people. I enjoy putting love into something that someone else can enjoy. And during the holiday season it is no exception. Every year I make and bake a variety of goodies for people. I typically distribute the goodies to the boys’ teachers, neighbors, friends, co-workers, etc. And every year I say that next year I will do less but I just don’t. I enjoy it too much.

This year I made the following:
1. M&M Cookies
2. Peanut Butter Fudge
3. White Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
5. Holiday Popcorn
6. Hot Chocolate Spoons
7. Peppermint Bark

I package the goodies up into holiday cellophane bags, tins, or treat boxes I buy at the local craft store. Then I deliver the Christmas goodies! That is always the best part. I know when I delivered the goodies this year people seemed excited so I hope they could taste the love in the goodies. You can find the recipes to the goodies I made either linked above or directions are listed below. Enjoy making your own goodies for you, your family, or to share.
