Christmas Candy Cabobs!

While I was waiting for my starbucks the other day I was browsing around the gift section of Chapters (I LOVE the gift section at Chapters) and I saw the cutest little Christmas candy cabobs (I know it is with a K but the c is so much cuter) and figured they would be fairly cheap and easy to make at home!

So I picked up some christmas candy and some skewers and got to work...
 SO cute!
 All packaged up and ready to gift!!!  How perfect would these be for teachers, neighbors, or anyone else that you want to treat this holiday season!

Peppermint Oreos mmmmmm...

So I came across a new blog that I have totally fallen in love with.  It is called I heart naptime...cutest name ever!!!  On her blog I found a recipe for homemade peppermint oreos and knew that I just HAD to make them.  They are going to be perfect to eat with our hot chocolates before the Santa Claus parade!

Here is the line-up (minus the pepermint extract because it was out in the car still)...
I have never used boxed cake mix before so I was a little but skeptical, but man did they ever turn out delish.  I was making the batter while the fellas were still up so I did not get any pictures of the process...
BUT I did put them together after the boys were in bed so I had time to set them up in a pyramid and then prop this cute little elf with them for an after picture!!!  Could they be anymore festive?
