Marshmallow Snowmen
Looking for a quick and easy recipe you can make for the holidays this year? Look no further than marshmallow snowmen to make a great first impression. Gather 12 squares of chocolate chip cookie bar dough, Nestle Crunch Jingles, and pretzel checkerboard snaps or mini pretzels. You will also need 2/3 cup prepared white frosting, 24 large marshmallows, and pretzel sticks for arms. Prepare the cookies as directed and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for at least two minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Attach the chocolate Jingles to the pretzel snaps using your frosting. Make your snowmen by splitting the pretzel sticks to create arms on either side of each marshmallow. Spread a teaspoon of frosting onto the center of each cookie and top with your snowman base. Press down lightly. Using thin strips of red licorice twists and orange sugar candy beads, you can add the perfect pop of color to your marshmallow snowmen by decorating them with scarves and imitation carrot noses.

Peanut Brittle
This classic Christmas treat can be enjoyed all year long. Using just a few ingredients, you can fill a tin with delicious peanut brittle that will make anyone smile this holiday season. Gather your unsalted butter, enough to cover the baking sheet, two cups of sugar, one and a half cups of salted peanuts, a pinch of salt, and enough vegetable oil to cover the spatula. Stir together the sugar, a half cup of water, and the salt in a medium saucepan. Cook over high heat, without stirring, until the sugar begins to melt. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has melted and the mixture turns golden. Remove the pan from heat and stir in the peanuts. Pour your peanut mixture onto a buttered baking sheet immediately, using an oiled spatula. Let the mixture cool completely before breaking your brittle into pieces to share or give as gifts. We offer one, five, and 30 pounds of raw peanuts for an affordable price!

Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes
Holiday crafts and recipes combine to provide the best of both the craft and culinary worlds. Pumpkin patch cupcakes are an adorable solution for Halloween parties or any kind of autumnal celebration. Gather a quarter cup of sour cream, a quarter cup of softened butter, two teaspoons of vanilla, half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon, half a teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg, five cups of powdered sugar, food coloring, Brach’s mellocreme candy pumpkins, and 12 of your favorite cupcakes. Mix the sour cream, butter, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl. Beat in the powdered sugar until smooth. Tint your frosting with green and brown food colorings to imitate grass. Set your cupcakes on a wire rack and pipe the frosting to look like grass on the top of each cupcake. Place two or three candy pumpkins on each cupcake and pipe frosting to look like green stems sprouting from each pumpkin.

Holiday Picture Frames
For quick and easy holiday decorations that you can do with the family, try out these holiday picture frames. All you need are a picture frame with the glass removed, some small ornaments, paint, ribbon, and some holiday stickers. Paint your picture frame a festive color, then using a hot glue gun, attach the ribbon to the top of the frame on two points as a hanger for on the wall. After that, using a new piece of ribbon, attach the ribbon to the inside of the frame, as well as to the top of the ornament using your hot glue gun. Add a couple of these to complete the look. Finally, add a festive message with holiday stickers. Once done, hang on the wall, and you have a fun, festive decoration made from scratch.

Holiday crafts and recipes are fun for the entire family. Remember to let loose and have fun while creating your own delicious recipes and crafts. You may just end up with a tradition that’s passed on from one generation to the next!
