So today Ms Olive and I delivered the cookies to the neighborhood. She wore her Santa Costume and looked so cute.
To wrap the cookies, I created a cookie box using a plain old white box from target (the kind you wrap gifts in the christmas wrap department). I used just some plain brown paper and crumpled it. then I dotted the paper with distress ink. After adhereing them ot the box I lined the box with foil and some pretty tissue paper. On top I added one of those cool chalkboard labels that I love. Of course I used bakers twine.
Chalkboard Christmas labels can be found at Worldlabel.com
For the cookies and candy this year my sister and I made the following:
- Peanut Brittle
- Praline Cookies with pecans
- Caramels ( 2 kinds, plain and with sea salt)
- Peatnut Blossoms
- Nut Clusters
- Chocolate Velvet Butter Balls
I will be posting the recipes with pictures over the next few days….check back soon!!!!
