What We’re Leaving for Santa

December 24, 2012 in holiday by amanda

I spent all day yesterday working on our Santa goodies and wanted to share that with y’all but since Christmas is tomorrow I’m gonna throw them all in one post and just link to the recipes I used. Hopefully this will inspire you if you don’t already have your Santa cookies ready!

This is the number 1 thing on my “must make” list every year. My mom has made it every Christmas for as long as I can remember and it’s probably what I look forward to most as far as holiday food goes. It’s Cocoa Puffs, Chex, pretzels, and peanuts coated in brown sugar and it’s amazing – I promise! Recipe is here!

I make these every year too. My husband loves peanut butter cookies and he loves peanut butter cups so these are always a winner.

This was my first time making these but they’re one of my new favorites. The minute I saw the recipe I had a flashback to some Christmas long ago. I don’t know if my mom made them or if I had them at school or what but I know I’ve had them before and loved them. They are Rice Krispies, marshmallows, and peanuts all wrapped in white almond bark. (My store was out of almond bark so I used white chocolate chips and it worked fine.)

I’m kind of scared of fudge so when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to give it a try. We loved it and it’s so quick and easy!

I also made oreo truffles but I think I’m the last person on earth to make them so no photo. I bet Santa is going to really, really love them though!

Have a Merry Christmas if you celebrate! :)
