‘Tis the season for to be baking. But, sometimes you don’t want to slave away in the kitchen. So, I’m thrilled to share this fun no-bake Christmas Cookie Wreath idea with you today as part of a campaign that has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #NuttyForTheHolidays #CollectiveBias The holidays definitely call for all kinds of festive treats. Between family gatherings, holiday parties, school parties, edible gifts, and more, it seems like there are a plethora of occasions that call for special goodies this time of year! While I love baking, sometimes you need a treat in a hurry or don’t want to completely mess up the kitchen. That’s where some cute no-bake treats come in. And with NUTTER BUTTER Cookies, there are SO many cute holiday ideas out there – like adorable snowmen, reindeer, Santas, Christmas lights, and more. But, I opted to do a very classic holiday item with a wreath! Using the NUTTER BUTTER Cookies made this an absolute breeze to make! This wreath is perfect for putting our for holiday parties! Here’s the easy recipe for making it!
- NUTTER BUTTER Cookies
- green candy melts
- piping bag or plastic baggy
- edible embellishments (holiday sprinkles, etc)
- Decide the size you’d like your wreath to be. Get the plate/tray you plan to serve it one, put down a sheet of parchment paper, and arrange the NUTTER BUTTER Cookies in a ring.
- Once you know how many cookies you’ll need, go ahead and melt your candy melts according to package directions (I just do that in the microwave- quick & easy)!
- Dip your cookies in the melted green candy (so the tops and sides are covered) and arrange on the parchment. You don’t need to worry about how nicely you dip because the cookies will be covered! Let cool.
- A second row really makes this look better – more 3-dimensional and more like a full wreath. So repeat the arranging & dipping with a second row of cookies.
- Then, spoon some of the melted candy into a piping bag (or plastic baggie with the corner snipped) and pipe some sort of zig-zag pattern onto your wreath (it covers up blemishes and makes it look a bit more finished).
- Before that dries, add any decorations you’d like – I chose some holly sprinkles and 3 large shiny white gumballs. But you can decorate however you’d like!
So festive and fun! You can whip this up quickly and it would be something that kids would LOVE to help decorate! Cute holiday recipes are some of my favorites and I love the way this turned out!
