Christmas Treat Bags

Over the weekend I did a LOT of baking and gift wrapping. Including making these fun Christmas treat bags for some of my blogger besties!












During the holidays, I love nothing more than baking up a storm. Weeks before Christmas, you'll probably find me in the kitchen. I love making my mother's Christmas candy recipes + scouring Pinterest for new treats to try.

One recipe that has been in my family for years, is my mother's homemade Turtles. Funny name, but they kind of look like turtle shells when it's all said and done. They're super simple to make. Dark chocolate, caramel and pecans (and a splash of whipping cream) is all you need! I shared the recipe on the blog last year. Check it out here.

I also made a huge batch of Oreo Balls and my Red Velvet and Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I usually take a big box of my treats to my office holiday party, as well as make a few treat bags for coworkers and my apartment doorman.

This year I decided to make Christmas Treat Bags for some of my blogger friends. Nine of us met up last night to enjoy a fun meal, lots of wine and great company. There wasn't much hosting involved, just toasting! I didn't want my friends to leave empty handed though, so I boxed up a few of my treats and slipped them in these fun burlap bags! I found them at Michaels on major sale! To finish off the bags, I added a fun gift tag from Minted (c/o) and these sparkly hashtag ornaments from West Elm. How perfect are those for my blogger friends?!

It was such a fun way to celebrate the holidays with everyone!! These treat bags would be perfect for your friends, coworkers or as small tokens of appreciation!
