This year I have been trying to make some homemade gifts. I truly believe it is important to show the kids not everything has to be bought and homemade gifts show a lot of love and thoughtfulness.
I love sweet and salty recipes, so this one is right up my alley. Something about sweet and salty is just delicious to me. I love how they balance each other out. If you don’t want it to be balance, but a little more on the sweet side, then omit the salt on top. I love adding the sprinkles to make it look a little more Christmas.
This is a great recipe to make with your kids, because there are a few steps and it’s easy to make. Plus they can decorate the top the way they want.
