It’s that time of year again! We’ve made it to the third without the youngest asking to open a present yet, so victory is mine!
When I think of Christmas, three things stick out and all involve sweets! I’ll admit, I have an addiction to the Christmas frosted sugar cookies my grandma made. So obviously, those are a definite staple.
Second, out of all the things my kids may ask for, the first thing they do is check their stockings for the giant Hershey Kiss Santa brings every year. Even the oldest at eighteen still grabs her stocking first. Love the simple things.
The last is a demand the three kids will not let me get by without. Christmas mints. They’re really only cream cheese mints, but I only make them at Christmas. They all help, but we rarely have enough to put out for dinner by the time we’re done because they eat more than they help!
Here’s to traditions and family… I wish you the best for you and your families!
1 – 8 oz package of cream cheese
1 –2 lb box of powdered sugar
Peppermint extract, 10-11 drops
Food coloring –optional
Granulated sugar – for rolling
–Mix all together except granulated sugar. When mixed, roll into small round balls, barely bigger than a pea, roll in sugar, press flat with thumb on waxed paper and let dry overnight. Wahlaaa!
