Sugar plum fairies

It may be in the 70's here in North Carolina but I'm doing my best to bring the Christmas spirit to my house.  We have stockings at work so I like to come up with some creative goodies to give to my coworkers.  Here's a roundup of my projects this year.

Candy Cane Peppermint Bark

So easy

And so cute!

Lazy Man's Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Start with some pretzels on a baking sheet

Have some pretty chocolates for decorating on hand

After putting some chocolate on each pretzel, bake for a few minutes to melt chocolate. Then decorate!

I wrapped them up and tied them with a bow

Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispie Treats

So incredibly easy it kind of felt like cheating

 Smore's Cupcakes (Chocolate Cake, Marshmallow cream filling, and Graham Cracker Buttercream)

Decorated and ready to go

Gingerbread and Apple Spice Bread

I baked the breads in individual pans purchased from Michaels. I then wrapped them in brown paper and bakers twine.

I thoroughly enjoy having a reason to make fun treats! I already have a ideas for next year brewing.

I hope every one is having a wonderful Christmas season.
