Christmas Ornament Cookie and Pretzel Snacks



It's almost Christmas!!! Woohoo!! And this is it for me, one last treat before Christmas day.  And it's a really simple one too, some little ornaments made from mini vanilla wafers, pretzels, cheerios, and your favorite sprinkle decorations--you may have this stuff at home already. 


I keep seeing these mini vanilla wafers in different colors at my local food store, which make great little round colorful ornaments.  If you can't find the tinted ones, just use regular mini vanilla wafers.


Attach the wafer with melted candy melts or chocolate to a pretzel base.  


 Then attach a cheerio with melted candy as the ornament loop.  Decorate with sprinkles/candy in any way you like.  And ta-da, little tiny and tasty ornaments.  Sweet and salty always a big hit a parties.  These got gobbled up super fast.


Only 3 days until Christmas! My big kid is 9 and the little ones are 6 so this is such a fun fun FUN time right now.  They are big enough that life in general is so much easier but they are still into all the fun kid stuff.  Plus we have been doing some construction in our house, and we're 99% done - just in time for Christmas! YAY!!  Life is great.  And how crazy that 2014 is around the corner??   Going to try to log off for a bit and do that quality time thing.  

I do want to take a moment to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas if you celebrate, and a very Happy Holiday season to all.  I appreciate all the interactions, comments, and friendships over the years, as well as all the sharing of my stuff around the interwebs! You guys are the best.
