Y’all. I have a real problem.

I got all my shopping done really early last month and now it just doesn’t feel right to be done.

Like, I’m so used to doing my shopping around this time that I can’t control myself. Every time I go into a store I’m all “Mmm, maybe I should just get one more dog toy/Hot Wheels/giant Reeses cup!”

It’s bad.

I’m currently trying to distract myself from clicking “confirm” on a ginormous Sephora shopping cart by baking every Christmas treat I can think of.

How To Make Holly Crackles!

I especially love cereal treats this time of year and I just couldn’t resist these Holly Crackles.

They’re like Rice Krispies Treats but made with Cornflakes! And they obviously taste better because they’re green and shaped like little holly bushes!

The best thing about no bake cookies like this is that the kiddos can be responsible for most of it. Shaping these and putting the candies on top is the perfect job for tiny helpers! So if you have a class party coming up or your little one just wants to help fill the cookie tins, make sure you save this recipe!
