Candy Christmas Tree We wish we could properly give credit to someone for coming up with this adorable idea but could not find any attribution on the Facebook post we found these on.
Are these not the cutest Christmas tree candy treats ever? Perfect to serve at a holiday parties, Christmas Day open houses and even to give as stocking stuffers or small holiday gifts of endearment. We also love the fact that these chocolate tree treats are so easy for the kids to make themselves. While you are preparing your holiday meal, set the kids (and other family members that might be under-foot) up at the kitchen table, and put them all to work. Now add an individual Christmas Tree Treat at each place setting. You can set them in the middle of each plate or use as a place card holder >> just lean a small place card up against your hand Christmas Tree! #toocute

Collin Street Bakery Fruitcake
If you asked us two days ago whether you should gift fruitcake this year, the answer would have been a resounding NO! But following an hour long meeting and a free fruitcake sample from Collin Street Bakery, we are revising that assessment.
Have we changed our mind because they are paying us to do so. Absolutely NOT. Although we will get paid a small percentage of any sale if you click the links on this page and actually buy from Collin Street Bakery, we never ever recommend products and companies we do not love and trust. And as you well know, we very seldom do reviews because we almost never like the products we are sent to review. We have an entire closet filled with stuff that we cannot even give away to our friends and family because nobody wants it. Continue Reading →
