A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2020 – Day 9
Thank you for joining me for my 12 Days of Christmas 2020.
A link to the previous days will be at the end of this post.
This year I am going back to basics of why I started my blog and that was to inspire you to make, bake, create and decorate, all on a budget of course. From now until the end of November, I will share some simple, easy and budget friendly ideas just in time for the holidays.
Day 9: Sweet & Salty Holiday Candy
Sweet and Salty Holiday candy turns a regular old saltine cracker into a delicious holiday candy. It’s the easiest holiday dessert to throw together and an easy, no-bake treat.
35 saltine crackers
1 c. (2 sticks) butter
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 3/4 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1 bag red and green holiday M&Ms
1 jar baking sprinkles
Top immediately with chocolate chips and let melt. Smooth chocolate out into an even layer, then top with red and green M&Ms and holiday
sprinkles. Cut into squares, then cool until the chocolate has hardened.
Saltine crackers coated with caramel, chocolate and candy. A salty, crunchy holiday treat. What’s not to love? It’s AWandafulThing!

Welcome to Day 1 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2016.
Over the next 12 Days you can look forward to posts that will include things to make, things to bake and easy ways to decorate.
I’m starting off with these Hershey Kiss Christmas Cookies (that’s my name for them).
I had a good laugh when I read the instructions to remove the wrappers from the candy as the first step in the baking process. Take it from me buy a big bag….a lot of them ended up in my belly – very, very smart move on the part of the Hershey company…lol
The pictures below the recipe show the step by step process after the dough is made.
1 bag Hershey’s Kisses brand Candy Cane Kisses (I used Hershey’s Hugs)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons milk
Red and Green colored sugar
Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove wrappers from candies (approx. 35)
Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternatively with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in red and/or green colored sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 – 1o minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookies is set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press candy piece into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Yields approximately 35 cookies.
