Spreading Love with Baking During The Holidays

I’ve always been a baker and growing up, that is all my mom and I did during the holidays (or at least it felt like it). That is why I have always baked with my son. Over the year’s he has helped me in the kitchen but now that he is 5, he can take on a lot more responsibility.

So this year I am excited to do all sorts of baking. I really enjoyed making this Peppermint and Chocolate Chex Mix because it was easy to do and my son was able to help me. I cannot wait to see what we will come up with next!
