This is our second year of making gifts (not buying them) for Christmas. I'm always at a loss as to what to make for the guys since they most likely wouldn't appreciate cute little crafts.

I decided that no guy would be disappointed with a bag full of homemade treats. Since Christmas is only a few weeks away, I need to make a decision on what all I will be making and start to make whatever will freeze well.

These are the yummies I have come up with so far...
(if you have any suggestions, please let me know!)

chocolate dipped macaroons
(so good and so easy to make)

snickers-stuffed brownie chunk peanut butter cookies
(I dare ya to say that ten times fast)

oreo truffles
( I made these for a new years party right after I found out I was pregnant.
I never tried one because they made me nauseous.
Everyone said they were amazing and I want one now.)

chocolate peppermint bark

eggnog fudge

chocolate carmel cookie brittle


chocolate pretzel bites
