Today, I know it's not baking, but I'm getting some Christmas gifts together with the daycare kids and my son for parent gifts and for my sons teacher and bus driver. We already made bath melts. They are just 1/2 cup coconut oil, put in the micorwave for ten seconds and stir, repeat until melted, then add 10drops of essential oil of your choice (I used DoTerra serenity) put in ice cube trays (or cute Christmas molds) and put in the fridge for 30min to harden. Add one or two to your bath. Moisturizers and the oil is one that helps you relax.
Next we are making "hot chocolate on a stick". Melt chocolate chips, half we will add peppermint oil to, then put in ice cube trays. Stick a spoon (or stick or candy cane) in each. We are sprinkling candy cane on the peppermint ones. Cool in fridge, then put in cute bag with marshmallows. Warm up a cup of milk or water, take spoon and stire and you have hot chocolate.
Wednesday or Friday we will be making cinnamon ornaments and next week we will be baking bread and add a loaf in each gift bag. I try to do fun/easy things the kids can really be a part of.
Last, I will be making my chocolate covered ritz crackers sometime this week. Ritz crackers with peanut butter in the middle dipped in chocolate. My mom use to make them for her cookie trays every year and they were everyone's favorite, even though they aren't really cookies or baked. I make them every year now. I wanted to do cookie trays this year with a few kinds, but I just don't see that happening. Every year, I say "maybe next year", so maybe next year 😂
