Christmas Eve and Christmas Candy

Merry Christmas Eve! This is definitely one of my favorite days of the whole year! We have had a wonderful week here...we went to friends house to cookie decorate, had friends over to cookie decorate (I loveee cookie decorating, it is a tradition my mom started years ago with our family and it is so fun), Rob had a game with a win (wahoo!), and we have slept on the blow up mattress every night this week so we could be by the Christmas tree, there is just nothing better! AND I made these babies yesterday...

So when I say Christmas candy I use that very lightly...because these things, well there is nothing easier!

Pretzel Rollo Candy

4-5 bags of pretzels
Large Bag of M&M's
360 rollos (yeah...)

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
2. Lay pretzels on baking sheet lines with foil
3. Place one rollo on top of each pretzel
4. Pop in the oven for 2 minutes, just to soften the rollo
5. Grab an M&M, place on top of softened rollo and press down

Now let dry and voila! 

Easiest. Candy. Ever.

So you by no means have to make as many as I did...obviously with 360 rollos I made 360 of this deliciousness.And made 30 of these...

We grabbed 30 cellophane bags, a lot of ribbon and stuffed 11-12 pretzel rollo candies in each! Then we took them to the basketball game yesterday and passed out to all the team, coaches, and staff! Such an easy but homemade little Christmas gift! So if you are looking for a last minute little gift or a delicious "Christmas Candy" these suckers will not disappoint! 

And there ya go a little recap of our week and some delicious sweets for your Christmas! Now we are about to hop in the car and make the 7 hour drive to...Paris!! I can hardly contain my excitement and can hardly believe I am typing those words out! We are so grateful for this opportunity and plan to enjoy this trip to the fullest. So be ready for lots of pictures in the near future...lots from friends visiting and lots from Christmas in Paris! 

Robert and I wish each of you a very Merry and Blessed Christmas. We are so thankful for our Savior who came down to this earth and shows love and grace that is unfathomable. Merry Christmas friends and family, we love you all!
