A Fun Recipe for the Holidays


2 children baking in the kitchenDo you want a fun recipe for the holidays, with NO BAKING included? Perfect! Try this easy holiday snack recipe that your whole family can enjoy making and eating! As much as I love eating a homemade pie or cake, I’m not typically the one to bake them. However, I LOVE finding ways to spend time with my daughter in the kitchen, especially around the holidays. Those are the memories that I always had growing up: helping my mom in the kitchen. This is an easy cleanup snack recipe to try with your kids for the holidays.
