Best part of the holidays?
Baking of course!
Around here, at least on the weekends when everyone is home and wandering the house on Saturday, we find things to occupy our time. And because it’s the biggest holiday of the year in our house, so many of those hours are spent baking and decorating. As a kid it was one of my most favorite things, baking up a storm with my grandmother. Being able to share that with my kids is just icing on the…well…brownie.
And brownies do not have to be complicated or boring. You can pick up Pillsbury™ Brownie mix quite easily from your local Publix, as well as some Pillsbury™ Vanilla frosting, and turn it into something magical for Christmas! And what isn’t there to love about Pillsbury™ products? They make baking a breeze with an easy way to create, taste, share and more! If you want to learn more about what Pillsbury™ has to offer in its amazing line, head over here and find out what you can fill your pantry with (other than love) this season.
My family doesn’t have many traditions at all. We change from year to year but baking itself, that stays the same. I always know I am going to get behind the cupcake or brownie pan with two eager mini chefs at my side. Thankfully I am not one of those moms that worry too much about mess or perfection. Its all about the creativity and laughs (and licking the extra frosting off your fingers). If you are also a mom that loves to get messy in the kitchen, making Christmas Tree brownies, or even Christmas Crack, is just the ticket.
You bake em, the whole family decorates them! With hoards of icing colors and the tiny cute sprinkles in a variety of sugar shapes, the only limit is your imagination.
And if you ARE one of those moms that prefers the neat and tidy, sneak these in while everyone is at school and you will still get a rave reaction when offered up as an “after school” treat. And because Pillsbury™ makes it so easy for me to bake, I have more time to decorate.
