Last minute Christmas pressies - Cookies for Santa




I prepared some Kris Kringle presents last night for todays work Christmas picnic. I saw the idea first on Bakerella and then a Christmas version on Make it Do. I think it's a great idea and much nicer than a box of chocolates. The first time I did it, I put the sugar on top of the M&Ms like the others have, but it fell through, so this time I played it safe and put the sugar nearer the bottom. Unfortunately I couldn't find only red and green M&Ms, even the Christmas packs were filled with all colours, but I put in regular size and minis. These only took me 15 mins to put together which was a bonus. I hope the recipient likes them.
