Decorating Holiday Treats -- Mrs. Freshley's Holiday Recipes

**Thank you to Mrs. Freshley's for sponsoring today's FUN post!  Happy Holidays!

There are so many fun things to do in your Christmas Kitchen!  Every year my husband requests these special oat cookies that I can't manage to get correct.  Only his mom can make them right!  After 7 years of making these things, you'd think I would get them right, but nope.  They always end up a nice mess of chocolate gooey sludge.   While I'll leave the oat cookies to my Mother in Law, I have enlisted Mrs. Freshley's on a few projects I am sure to not mess up!  Allyson even helped me out a bit with these cute treats!

What we have here is Holiday Donut Sticks, Frosty Donuts, and Merry Berry Honey Bun Trifle.  Every bit of this picture looks so yummy!  Before I try to eat these treats through my monitor, let's get on with how to make them for your family!

Holiday Donut Sticks

Ingredients Needed:
  • 1 Family Pack of Mrs. Freshley's Donut Sticks
  • 2 cups of melted chocolate (I used Almond Bark)
  • Holiday Sprinkles  
 Melt your chocolate according to the package directions in a medium bowl.  Dip each Donut stick halfway into the bowl of melted chocolate until fully coated.  Garnish with holiday sprinkles and let cool.  

Frosty Donuts

Ingredients Needed:
  • 1 Family Pack of Mrs. Freshley's Mini Donuts
  • 1 Bag of Candy Corn
  • Vanilla Icing
  • 1 Bag of mini chocolate chips
  • 1 Bag of mini candy coated chocolate
  • Red licorice
  • Small peppermint sticks
Stack three Mini Donuts on top of one another with the donuts lying horizontally.  Press the large end of a candy corn piece into the hole of a fourth donut.  Use vanilla icing to adhere mini chocolate chips to the same donut for the snowman's eyes and mouth.  Place the decorated donut vertically on top of the stack of three, creating the snowman's body and head.  Next, use vanilla icing to adhere three candy coated chocolates to the snowman for buttons.  Finally, cut a piece of licorice to use for the snowman's scarf and insert two peppermint sticks for arms. 

Merry Berry Honey Bun Trifle

Ingredients Needed:  

  • 10 Mrs. Freshley's Honey Buns
  • 1 Pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 2 Pints raspberries
  • 3/4 Cups of Sugar
  • 3 Tsp. of vanilla extract
  • 1 Tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
Cut Honey Buns into bite size pieces, put aside.  Mix strawberries, raspberries, sugar and vanilla extract in medium bowl.  Layer Honey Buns in glass serving dish, followed by berry mixture, then whipped topping.  Repeat layers until serving dish is full.  Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.

Allyson and I had SO MUCH FUN putting together these treats!  Mrs. Freshley's makes to best snacks and they're so easy to make into a perfect little snowman, or even a trifle!  As Christmas gets closer, get to your local store because Mrs. Freshley's will make your holiday a little less stressful and a little more sweet, for sure!
