Recipe: Christmas No Bake Cookies

What a wonderful feeling when the weekend is here. Can I get an Amen?! Yes, yes, it is a beautiful cold day outside today. I am doing Christmas cards today. I have my address books out, blank Avery address labels, and my cards laid out in front of me. The Christmas music is playing and the candles are lit. I have my nice little drinky winky beside me for a bit of fun. I should've bought eggnog. Oh how I love eggnog. I need to hit up the grocery store.

I have two address books. One that I have had since maybe 16 or 17 and the other I received in 2010 from my Mom. I have slowly, ever so slowly, been switching over the addresses to the newer book. So, this year, I decided I'm going to officially make the switch to just one book. It can be a bother to go back and forth in both books to ensure I haven't missed anyone. Why have I been doing this for years for ask? Because. OK, OK, I know that is not an acceptable answer. I wasn't ready to totally shift everything over and end the life of one book, even though it would make life so much easier.

I have the white blank Avery address labels so I can cover old addresses and write in new address on top. Just makes for a cleaner page instead of all those lines through each name or address. I should've taken a picture of one couple for this to show the miracle of clean up labels, ha! It was quite ridiculous. They must've moved 6 times over the course of the years and I was lining them out, noting new entry on page 3, and the infamous moved again, beside their name and now all cleaned up!

Thought I would give y'all a little Christmas recipe to go with your Christmas card writing extravaganza.

Items needed are sugar, water, butter, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, peanut butter, salt, cinnamon, Christmas sprinkles, and cooking oats.

In a saucepan on medium heat, mix 2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, and 1/2 cup softened butter.

Stirring occasionally while bringing to a boil.

Let boil for 1 minute and remove from heat.

Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, a splash of salt, 3 cups of quick cooking oats, a splash of cinnamon, 2 tablespoons Christmas sprinkles, and 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Fold all together until mixed well.

Drop spoonfuls onto parchment paper or wax paper and let cool for an hour. Store in sealed container. Enjoy the Christmas cookies while writing your Christmas cards for the ultimate experience of holiday cheer.
