Christmas in July... M&M Navitity Story!


 My *MOST* favorite digital creation from last year was my work-up of the "M&M Nativity Legend".  I altered the poem slightly (as I found several varying versions online), so I don't really have a particular person or website to credit for it... but I can credit Just So Scrappy for designing a fun Christmas Scrapbooking Kit FULL of sparkly holiday bling... "Holly Jolly"!

The poem and the card are cute... but are EVEN CUTER when you add a fun holiday treat with it, M&M style of course!  I bagged hundreds of these babies last year and my hubby took them into work for gifts.  Quick and easy instructions for making your own this coming Holiday Season are below...


Start by lining a cookie sheet with wax paper, then fill the sheet completely with square pretzels.  Top each pretzel with a peppermint Hershey Kiss (which I've only ever found at Target).  Heat your oven to about 170 degrees and WATCHING CLOSELY warm them for 5 to 6 minutes.  You want to soften the Kiss, not melt it (or it turns into a big mess)!  When it's soft, you can press an M&M on top.  Chill for 5 to 10 minutes to set, wrap in a cello bag with ribbon, attach the M&M Nativity Story and you're done!

  11. WOW! I am going to run to Walmart and see if they have these! Thanks for the great idea and the wonderful poem. I always make chocolate covered pretzels but the hard way...melt the chocolate, dip the pretzel, burn your hand, make a huge mess:) Thanks so much
