I wanted to make some holiday treats for our neighbors, but I don’t really enjoy cooking. I asked Briar and Brad to help and we picked some easy treats that wouldn’t require any real cooking – peanut butter and Ritz crackers dipped in chocolate almond bark, pretzels dipped in vanilla almond bark decorated with red and green sprinkles and peppermint brittle – which is melted white chocolate chips mixed with crushed peppermints and then chilled and broken apart.
While Brad was excited and did almost all of the work, Briar retreated to the living room and asked that we yell at him when it came time to crush things. And let me tell you, boys LOVE crushing things.
After finishing, we loaded up Christmas tins and delivered our goodies. Brad proudly told the neighbors what he had made and that he hoped they enjoyed the treats.
He has since thought of several others who he wants to deliver Christmas goodies to ... Looks like I’ll be spending even more time in the kitchen!
