Last Minute Sweets....

Here are a couple of fast and easy to make sweets. We are going to leave these and chocolate covered Ritz bits out for Santa and the reindeer this year (click to enlarge).

This is all you need for yummy chocolate covered Ritz bits.....
I just melt the almond bark in the microwave, then stir in hand-fulls of Ritz bits. I use a spoon and scoop them out onto wax paper for the chocolate to harden. Quick, easy and delicious!

We sure love these and hope Santa and the reindeer will to!
I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Hope you have a great one with your family and friends.

Those look truly yummy. Easy is always good.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas. I enjoyed the tour of your mom's house too.

It has been fun getting to "know" you over these many months.

Those look yummy. I feel a little overwhelmed with sweets right now though. The problem with giving away 40 treat containers, is that people tend to reciprocate.

Looks like Lexi is quite the little helper in the kitchen *smiles* She is such a lovely girl!
I'm buried under work, sewing, shopping, gift wrapping and baking! I even have to work today of all days! *sigh* How will it all get done? A ChrisTmas mircle! Yes that's the answer!
*smiles* Wishing you and your family many ChrisTmas blessings and tidings of good cheer for the new year. (((Hugs)))

Hello Darlene, the Ritz bits look yummy. In our small town there is no almond bark to buy. I am finding out that shopping EARLY is a must around here. I know Santa will eat them up!!! Mmmmmm.

Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones with blessings and love...Jeanne

Aren't you so smart with the Ritz bits? I make a bigger version of these and slap the peanut butter on each cracker myself. Thanks for showing me the light! Have you tried dipping them in white bark? Delicious, too!
