Holiday Bake Off!

As I am making this post I find myself getting a little more into the Holiday spirit and even more so do I find myself wanting to run to the kitchen and bake! I wanted to make this really easy for us and get all the baking recipes we need this year in one post!!! All of these are easy, shareable, kid friendly and delish! So lets dig in……….

No Bake Cookies with Nutella?? These would be a huge hit with, well…….. anyone. These are on my “To Bake” list this year for sure!!! The recipe is HERE!

Christmas Crack is an easy recipe that starts with saltines and then it turns into something you can’t get enough of……..hence the name Christmas Crack! The recipe is HERE! Your family and friends will thank you!

5 Minute Bourbon Truffle Balls sounds amazing right??!! These would make a nice easy gift too, put these in a little box for a coworker, neighbor or the guy in your life!! You can get the recipe HERE!

This is a picture from one of my Christmas Pasts Baking escapades that my sister would help me with every year! The green bundle is one of my ALL time favorite easy Holiday recipes…….. No Bake Holly Leaves! I found this recipe years ago on the Kraft website and you should add it to your bake list this year…….
No Bake Holly Leaves


Need1/3 cup butter or margarine
30 JET-PUFFED Marshmallows

1-1/2 tsp. green food coloring
3 cups corn flakes
2 Tbsp. cinnamon red hot candies 


Make It
MELT butter in large saucepan on low heat. Add marshmallows; cook and stir 3 to 4 min. or until melted. Stir in food coloring.

ADD cereal; stir to evenly coat. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper-covered baking sheets sprayed lightly with cooking spray. Press candies into cereal mixture, flattening each mound slightly.

LET stand at room temperature 30 min. or until firm. ENJOY!

This is another recipe I got years ago from the Kraft website (you should check it out). This is homemade Thin Mints and I swear this incredibly easy recipe tastes almost like the Girl Scout version! These are a favorite around the Savage house and they will be a favorite in yours too!!!
Homemade Thin Mints recipe is HERE!
For some ideas on how to package these as gifts, take a look at a past post of mine HERE!

I hope you all will make one or two of these recipes, let me know how they turn out!! Maybe this weekend I will bake these myself and I just might share………

    THANKS! I am going to bake either this weekend or next with my granddaughter. These will give us some new ideas from what I made with my girls many years ago. I am happy to hear you are getting in the spirit.
