One of my favorite things about Christmas time is making treats with my kids in the kitchen.
christmascandyMaking Christmas cookies can be such a fun tradition to pass down to your children. When I was growing up, my mom and my Grandma always made candy for Christmas along with cookies. Christmas candy is so much fun to make. It can be pretty simple too! I am not much of a baker, but I love making candy! Your kids will love making candy with you too!
