You guys.  I’m so crazy excited about this post, because I’ve teamed up with some other seriously talented bloggers to give you some fun ideas for your holiday entertaining.

And let’s just get it out here now: there’s nothing on this list that is skinny jean friendly in any way.  We’re talking Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups here.  Just enjoy the last few weeks of the holiday season and eat those chocolate goodies while you can.  We’ll talk healthier foods in January, mmkay? ;-)

Seriously.  Someone explain to me how Christmas is next week already.  I’m sort of having a freak out moment because I’ve realized I have not one gift wrapped, still a few to purchase, a party to host on Saturday, and a million other things still left on my to-do list.

Lucky for me making a cute little cookie for a room of first graders is something I’ve actually got checked off and ready to go.

Doodle had such a fun time helping make {and um, sample} a few of these cute little guys.  Normally, my kiddo is over the sweets after eating just one {a concept I do not understand}, but he’s been asking for one of these festive cookies pretty much every day after school.

Batch number two, here we come.

Quite honestly, chocolate and peanut butter is one of the best combinations ever, yes? ;-)

Reese’s Capped Snowmen Cookies

Ingredients

  • 24 Nutter Butter Cookies
  • 12 mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, halved
  • 1 package white CandiQuik
  • 48 mini chocolate chips
  • 48 mini M&M's
  • orange jimmies
  • black frosting for piping (I used this)

Instructions

  1. Melt CandiQuik according to package directions. Dip 3 or 4 cookies into melted CandiQuik and place on wax paper to set. Working quickly, place mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups on for the hat, 2 chocolate chips for the eyes, an orange jimmie for the nose, and 2 mini M&M's for the buttons.
  2. Repeat, until all cookies are dipped and decorated.
  3. Allow to set completely - I chilled mine in the refrigerator to speed the process along. Once set, pipe on a scarf with black frosting. Since I only needed a little bit, I used this ready made kind I purchased in the baking aisle at my grocery store.
