No-Bake Cookies

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,

stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons.

It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.

And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.

What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.

What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.
 Dr. Seuss

The following recipe was previously posted Dec. 19th, 2011. I loved making these easy cookies for the holidays and thought it was worth posting again. Kids really like them.

Reindeer No-Bake Cookies

Follow the above link to these very cute no bake and easy cookies to make for the holiday season from Southern Living.
 The great thing about this recipe is that all the ingredients can be found at the grocery store.
  • 1 package of Nutter Butter cookies. I placed one cookie (on left side package) so you can tell what cookie size looks like
  • 1 small can of white frosting
  • 1 package large regular holiday M&M's (so there is enough for the cook/cooks to nibble on )
  • 1 bag of pretzels
  • Take one cookie apart
  • Break a pretzel with a large sharp knife to make 2 antlers-cut in one quick stroke 
  • Place a dollop of frosting at top of one of the opened cookie half on either edge and place a pretzel piece for the antler on either side and press down
  • Place other cookie half on top to secure the cookie
  • Use a dollop frosting each for the M &M eyes and nose. Be sure to use a red M &M for nose

Tip: Take a quart size plastic bag (heavy duty) put in 5 large tablespoons of frosting in the bag
Cut a corner off with scissors and use this as a easy piping bag
