Thanksgiving is over and now it is time for all things Christmas! Christmas is my most favorite time of the year like so many of you I’m sure. I love everything about it. I love baking, giving treats, the coziness, the twinkle of all the lights, and the love that seems to be everywhere. I wanted to start baking and taking around holiday decorated treats as soon as possible. I love to do multiple little gifts/treats for our neighbors because we truly lucked out with our neighbors on both sides of us. They worry about us, go out of their way for us, and are always there for us. Seriously, we the the best neighbors.
First, I wanted to make the yummiest chocolate pretzel brownies. I love that these dress up your regular brownie mixes and oh baby are they so yummy! I just had to share the goodness of this recipe with you because, when I love something I have to shout it from the roof tops.
I N G R E D I E N T S:
C R U S T:
1 1/2 cup Crushed Pretzels
1/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Melted Butter
B R O W N I E S:
1 box Fudge Brownie Mix
1/4 cup Water
2/3 cup Vegetable Oil
F R O S T I N G:
1 cup Powder Sugar
2 tbsp. Softened Butter
1/4 cup Melted Chocolate (I used chocolate chips)
2/3 tbsp. Milk
Crushed Pretzels for Garnish
Now for my favorite part, I love to do fun presentation of treats. I ran to Walmart to grab a few things and saw these holiday colored Rubbermaid TakeAlongs, they have the fun festive colors or holiday prints. They are the perfect size for giving out different treats to my friends and neighbors and I love that they were so quick and easy to dress up, plus they are dishwasher, microwave, and freezer safe so your neighbors can keep using them. Win, Win right!? I think my favorite part of them is that they have a Quik Clik Seal™ technology so I let King hand our neighbors their treats because with the Quik Clik Seal™ technology spills are prevented. They also have a soft and flexible lid with an easy to grab tab so they are easy to open. What is cuter than an almost one year old handing you yummy treats in cute packaging?? I don’t think much.
S U P P L I E S:
Hot Glue Gun
First, you will put the ribbon around the Rubbermaid TakeAlongs. Put small dots of hot glue around the Rubbermaid TakeAlong so that the ribbon doesn’t slide off and then hot glue the ends of the ribbon so they overlap in the back.
Next, tie a bow, and hot glue it to the center of the Rubbermaid TakeAlongs. I love how the little bow really dresses it up and adds a little Christmas happiness.
When you are done, fill them full of yummy treats and deliver them to your neighbors! So quick and easy, but it looks like you really put a lot of time and love into them. Your neighbors will love your yummy treats and you will love the feeling of service to others that you will feel.
You can grab your Rubbermaid TakeAlongs at your local Walmart. There are a ton of different sizes so that way you can find exactly what fits your needs. They have everything from TakeAlongs Rectangle, TakeAlongs Deep Square, TakeAlongs Serving Bowl, TakeAlongs Rectangle, and TakeAlongs Deviled Egg Tray.
