Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner? I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. I always look forward to a new year and a fresh start but find myself sad that my kids are getting older with each passing day. This is why Christmas is such an important time of year. It’s the time of year we get to spend creating magic and memories that last a lifetime. My family has tons of Christmas traditions we do plus new things we add in every year. One of my all-time favorite Christmas traditions is baking! This tradition dates back to when I was a child. My Mother always gives out a tin of homemade Christmas cookies as gifts each and every year. This has been happening since long before I was born. We are talking over 40+ years of Christmas baking and gifting. I’m working on a massive Christmas cookie post that will include all of my family’s beloved cookie recipes, but while you are waiting for that I figured I would share some of my favorite blogger’s ideas on easy and fun holiday treats you can make with your kiddos. I plan to try all ten of these this year. Have I mentioned I love baking?

Homemade Andes Mints
Christmas isn’t real until the Andes mints hit the table – am I right? Haha! I can vividly remember my Nana telling us we could sneak one before dinner but not to tell our parents. Now I can’t wait to make homemade Andes mints with my family. I know my Nana would love these and I will make them while thinking of all the wonderful memories of us baking together.
No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
No bake AND Peanut Butter??! Yes, please! My son and I cannot wait to make these together. Peanut butter might be a problem in this house and by problem I mean we cannot get enough. As my son gets older I’m always looking for fun things to do with him and no-bake options speak to me because he doesn’t have the same patience for baking he did when he was younger. Have your baking traditions changed over the years?
