I had been looking for a way to spread a little Christmas cheer to our neighbors...
so I decided to take a simple break-and-bake sugar cookie and jazz it up a bit. I'm all about taking complex things and making them simple, like baking. I got bags, ribbon, and peppermint from Dollar General and break-and-bake sugar cookies and meltable chocolate from Lowes Food, all totaling around $12 for about 6 neighbor households!
You will need: Sugar cookies, meltable dipping chocolate, peppermints, a hammer, Gift tags (download below!), plastic bags, and ribbon.
Step 1 - Bake sugar cookies according to directions on package.
Step 2 - While cookies are baking, crush some peppermint candies, between a towel, using a hammer.
Step 3 - While everything is cooling, print out the gift tags below!
Step 4 - Melt chocolate according to directions. Dip cookies into chocolate and sprinkle some peppermint on top. Leave cookies out to cool.
Step 5 - Assemble cookies in clear bags with gift tags. Take to your neighbors and try to wish them a Merry Christmas face-to-face. Have husband ready to tell a Christmas dad joke if things get awkward!
Merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope you have a truly wonderful Christmas and happy New Year. I am so thankful for all of the love and support my little tiny business has gotten this year and I'm looking forward to new things in 2018!
