I have had a SWEET TOOTH for as long as I can remember! lol.

As a kid, our pantry was always stocked with candies, chocolates, cookies and so much more.

While my Mom would be preparing dinner, she would keep me and my brother busy by showing us how to use items from that pantry to make all sorts of cute things.

I have a family of my OWN now and I am happy to say that I have continued that TRADITION 😀

My little one has been fighting a little cold for a few days… sighs 🙁


To take his mind off his runny nose, we decided to get CRAFTY in the kitchen…

We  TRANSFORMED Nutter Butter cookies into these adorable penguins sledding down a sugary snow trail.

These little cuties would be a FUN treat to make for Christmas parties.

Or maybe you can make them for a Winter wonderland themed birthday party.
