One of my favorite parts about the holiday season is baking! My entire family loves getting involved from the mixing of batter, whipping the frosting, topping the dessert mixed in with a little bit of tasting in between.
This season, we are teaching our girls about the true meaning behind the holidays and the gift of giving to others. While we sprinkle in the fun, we are also teaching some life lessons when we bake. Making sweet treats are two gifts in one: the gift of family time and the gift of sweet treats and giving! These are what memories are made of.
During our routine grocery shopping at Walmart, we grabbed a few supplies to whip up some whipped peanut butter chocolate fudge brownies. We found some M&M’S® Brand Minis Milk Chocolate Baking Bits, M&M’S® Brand Milk Chocolate Baking Bits and DOVE® Peppermint Bark (Limited Edition) - which are only in-stores for a limited time!
