Growing up, my mom, sister, and I would bake for Christmas. Our repertoire included:
-Peanut Butter Blossoms
-7 Layer Bars
… and at least one or two other new cookies we’d try just for fun. Did I mention we would always double (or triple!) the recipes?
So yeah, I like to make Christmas Cookies and I like to think I’m pretty decent at it. When I was in college, my go-to Christmas gift was Chocolate Crinkles. I’d make a batch and BAM Christmas gifts for every roommate/coworker/random friend who decided to exchange gifts. This technique worked well post college, until I got dreams of doing something different.
I’ve seen this nifty recipe floating around the interwebs. It seemed cheap (it’s not) it seemed easy (it’s not).
Problem? The kisses didn’t want to melt into the kisses. If I pushed too hard with the M&M the caramel kind of exploded everywhere. A mess, to say the least.
I should have stuck with cookies.
