Christmas Baking!

It's one of my favorite things of the year, especially the Christmas season. This year, Mom and I spread it out over 2 days and didn't have much help from the other 2, but that's okay. We had fun!

Coming to a Christmas plate near you (maybe!):
-Peanut Butter Delights (my favorite!)
-Rice Krispy Treats
-Haystacks
-Rolo Pretzels
-Peanut Butter Kisses
-Fudgemallow Squares
-Peppermint Brownies

These were the results of Day 1, but I don't have any pics of those being made.
When I got to Mom's, she had already done all of these. We know for sure we did 140+ of peanut butter cookies, most of them with kisses in them.
And a couple of batches of RKT. We ran out of some crucial elements, but Laura did graciously make a grocery store run for us.
Rolo pretzels in the making. This is the first year I remember helping with these. Super easy!
Getting everything ready to go to different homes!
All done!

I know that none of those things are super-complicated, but it's just a fun thing to do with my Mom every year. And I also LOVE delivering these treats to friends and family. Not everyone appreciates the calories, but I think most people appreciate the time that went into them. :)
