Treat collage 1 Who doesn’t love these cute little bite size holiday treats?  Peppermint Oreo Balls are always a hit!

And below are Peppermint Oreo Balls with Andes mints on top.   Similar to the Crème de Menthe Oreo Poppers I made before but without being sandwiched in between the kick of salty pretzels.  Treat collage12-17-10 005

Don’t forget to leave cookies out for Santa!  You don’t want coal do you?

I love this snowman mug.  My aunt gave it to me several years ago and it’s even personalized.  I’ll take a piping hot cup of cocoa now with marshmallows on top please!

Below are Hershey Mint Kiss Discs.  So easy to make.  See for yourself.

Mint Discs

  • 1 pkg. round pretzels

  • 1 pkg. mint Hershey Kisses

  • 1 pkg. mint M&M’s

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet line up pretzel rounds until sheet is full.  Place unwrapped Hershey Kiss in the middle of each pretzel round.  Place in oven for only 2 1/2 minutes (just until Kiss is soft enough to be pressed down).  Remove from oven and place mint M&M on top of each Hershey Kiss pressing down slightly.  Allow to cool and for chocolate to harden before serving.

So easy to pop these mint discs in to your mouth, one after another…!

The pretzel rods are easy to need a recipe for them!make and you don’t even need a recipe for them!12-17-10 023

Turtle Pretzel Bites

Did you just look at the full party album slideshow above?  There’s lots of pictures there and I wish I would have taken many more!

That night we had a bunch of our friends back over for a pizza party.  We devoured 6 pizzas quickly like we hadn’t eaten all day!  Talk about being stuffed! 


I hope you have a SNOW KISSED Christmas!

Have a great holiday week!  Enjoy all the parties, festivities and food because it’ll be over before we know it!


Do you dream of a white Christmas?

I do and we are getting one this year 🙂

    Woah! JENGA for pretzels? Sign me up ! I also am loving the brownie covered oreos and the Turtle pretzels MMM! Good job and thanks for sharing the recipes 🙂

  2. Woah! These all look delicious and easy! I think I gained 5 pounds just from looking!!! I think I’ll have to make the discs and turtles for Christmas Eve or maybe to bring to our VT ski weekend. Thanks again for scrumptious inspiration, Amy. You’re the best!

  3. All of these look incredible! I recently discovered the deliciousness that is chocolate covered pretzels, so those look especially scrumptious 🙂

  4. I think Jenga played with those brownie covered oreos would be the best game ever. Whatever you knock down you have to eat. Bummer…I knocked it all over! 😀

  5. lowandbhold says:

    That chocolate Jenga might be the coolest thing I’ve EVER seen.

  6. First of all, LUCKY you for having a white Christmas!! Flurries are in the forcast, but I’m not getting my hopes up with seeing how the weather is often wrong around here. :/ But we’ll see!

    Love all the goodies, too! They’re so simple and looks amazing. I bet they’re a lot of fun as well. Obviously they are if you can play Jenga with them, 😉

    Wow, can you just send me one of everything please??!! I am sure your friends love coming to your place for all the goodies you offer. I am especially in love with the brownie covered Oreo and the Rolo creation (can’t remember the specific name) but thanks for sharing the recipes for some of these! I will have to give it a go when I go to a party again b/c these would be absolutely dangerous to make at home since I live solo.

    I dream of a white Xmas but I am going to FL so it’s not gonna happen. However I hear there will be snow in Charlotte on Xmas day so I am utterly jealous I won’t be able to enjoy it.

    • Maybe the snow will still be there when you get back home 🙂 But enjoy the warmth in Florida and the Christmas lights on palm trees, so pretty! Let me know how if you make the goodies for your next party and how you like them 🙂 Merry Christmas!

  8. All that looks amazing! I seriously love chocolate + pretzels!!!

  9. The pretzel rods are so cute! I did a few because I had some almond bark leftover, but want to revisit it when I intend to make some AWESOME ones like yours!
