FULL RECIPE HERE: M&M Christmas Brownies

Last year’s Christmas brownies were such a hit, I thought I’d highlight a few more festive treats for you right here.

Especially since we’re heading right into the holiday season with Thanksgiving kicking off this week!

Christmas Popcorn – sometimes also called Reindeer Mix or Santa Crunch, is a fun treat to offer on a Christmas Desserts buffet.

You can set it out with more classic holiday desserts like gingerbread cookies, candy canes and traditional holiday cookies.

Or, serve it on it’s own as a cute snack while doing festive things like tree trimming or decorating gingerbread houses.
