Kid Friendly Holiday Treats

Here are a few, simple kid-friendly cookie-type treats that you can easily make in under an hour. The best part? Only one of them requires the oven! So if you don't want to bring a pre-made grocery store tray to the next holiday party and you aren't exactly looking forward to cracking eggs, measuring flour and lots of dirty dishes then look no further. This is the perfect compromise.


Grab a bag of marshmallows for this first treat. Melt dipping chocolate in a bowl on 50% power in 30 second increments. Once it is melted, insert a pretzel stick in a large marshmallow, dip in the melted chocolate then dip in sprinkled of your choice. Allow to harden on wax paper. Instant marshmallow pop!


Melt some more chocolate, white this time, and drizzle it across Oreo cookies spread out on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with your choice of sprinkle(s) and allow the chocolate to harden. Bedazzled Oreo's!



While the Oreo's are out, pull out some pre-made cookie dough and squash a ball of dough around a cookie. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for up to 20 minutes (the more cookie dough, the longer it will take and the bigger the final cookie!). When the tops are golden brown, pull them out of the oven for this sinful treat.


Yes. These are Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies. And they are sinful! So sinful we had to cut the giant cookies into quarters. But these are worth having to turn the oven on for!


But they are so, so good.

Last, but not least, open a container of mini chocolate glazed cookies, break apart some pretzel twists and add on a red M&M and two white chocolate chips for this cute little reindeer treat.
