There’s no better time of year than the holidays. Festive songs playing, sipping hot cocoa next to the fire and snacking on some good ol’ Christmas desserts! Kid-friendly Christmas desserts that is!
This year, as a mama, it dawned on me that we absolutely MUST make it a tradition to make at least 1 holiday treat every year as a family.
I want my son to grow up remembering and looking forward to these fun memories year after year.
