Christmas Goodies

I love to bake during the holidays.  This year, we've made a few goodies so far (mainly for teacher's gifts) but I wanted to share the ideas with you.

White chocolate party mix.  Corn chex, pretzels, Cheerios, peanuts and m&ms all covered in white chocolate.  Yum!

These little gems are so festive.  The original inspiration came from here.  My friend over at Phillips Phamily Phive also put a tasty spin on it with salted chocolate caramel pecan treats.

We made our first batch with candy cane kisses (my all-time favorite) and Christmas M&Ms. 

We made the second batch with plain chocolate kisses and the M&Ms.  The plain kisses took about 2-4 minutes longer to melt than the others.  It would also be good with peanut M&Ms.   

And last, but not least, the salted caramel chocolate shortbread bars.  These things are RICH, but very tasty.  I found the recipe here

Most of these things were bagged up for preschool teachers and Wednesday night choir teachers' gifts.  We will finish off the rest of it.  Enjoy!
