Check out this list of over 35 easy Christmas treats to make for gifts!
Last year, somewhere around the 23rd of December, I wished I had planned ahead and made Christmas treats for my neighbors. Las Vegas is a very transient town and our neighbors change frequently. But we also have a few neighbors who have lived in our neighborhood as long, if not longer, as we have. I felt like I had missed a great opportunity to reach out to them. So this year I am planning ahead! I already purchased the treat boxes and have set my plan in motion to surprise my neighbors with a box full of Christmas treats. I probably won’t be making many cookies. I know I need easy Christmas treats that I can make in bulk quickly. I went on a hunt around the web and found these great ideas and thought I’d share them with you.
