try christmas-cookies.com, they have a ton of cookie bar recipes which I love because it’s easier/faster than making individual cookies.

Make any brownie recipe that you love. Frost with a great frosting or some melted chocolate.

Spinkle with crushed candy canes.

I just had to make something really quick for a party… the square pretzels that look like a little grid, herhsey kisses filled with caramel, & the christmas red & green m&ms. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the hershey kisses on top of the pretzels on a cookie sheet lined with tin foil, put in the oven for 3 minutes (or until the kiss gets soft). When they come out, push one m&m in the top of the softened kiss. Put the tray in the fridge to harden & you’re done! 🙂 Mine are actually in the fridge right now haha.

Peanut butter cup chocolate chip cookies. Put mini cupcake paper liners in a mini cupcake tray. Scoop a spoonful of chocolatel chip cookie dough in each cup. Bake, remove trays from oven and push a peanut butter cup into each cookie. So good and always a big hit.

My friends and family also love trifles. If you have a trifle dish, you can come up with any sort of mix. A favorite of mine is devils food cake, chocolate pudding, cool whip and crumbled Heath bars. Layer twice and you’re done!

This may not apply for your party, but you can make donuts! 

Here’s how to make them:

Use a roll of biscuits (homestyle kind, big or small) as many rolls as you need.  Flatten the dough out, just a little, and use a clean bottle cap to punch a hole in the center.  Roll the center piece into a ball.

Deep fry biscuits until golden brown, or fry in a pan with enough oil for the dough to float.  You will probably have to turn the donuts/donut holes over to cook evenly.

Set out on paper towels to cool. Cover with a paste made from confectioner sugar & water (use a drop of red or green food coloring for Christmas!) or drizzle with the chocolate candy shell syrup.  Use sprinkles or whatever toppings you desire. Set out on wax paper to dry.

These are soo good, and great to prepare with kids! My mom and I used to do this all the time when I was little!

No bake butterscotch cornflake cookies.

Melt 1 bag of butterscotch chips and add in 1/3-1/2 cup peanut butter. Mix in roughly 6 cups of cornflakes (not crushed) and either spread on wax paper to set up or scoop out into little cookies. To make them festive, I usually sprinkle them with red and green sanding sugar. Thay are fantastic!

Take a bag of round pretzels, a bag of Hugs kisses, and red and green M&Ms.

Lay out the round pretzels on a lined baking sheet and put a Kiss on top. Put in a 250 oven for 1-2 minutes, just enough so the chocolate melts into the pretzel. Remove and let cool for a few minutes, and then press an M&M into each Kiss while it’s still soft.

These things are SO cute and really good – sweet and salty! My aunt makes them for the holidays and they’re a real hit.
