Baked Biscoff M&M Donuts

M&M donuts made with Biscoff spread, sweet recipes, dessert recipes

One of the traditions we always did when our kids were little was to leave milk and cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve.  And every year my husband tried to convince the kids that “Santa” would rather have White Castle burgers and Grape Soda.  Our kids never believed him though, and so cookies and milk were always left by the tree.  As the kids got older, they just realized that “Santa” is really just mom and dad.

Although one year we got them really good.  It was the year they were 2, 4, and 6.  The oldest was trying to convince the younger two that Santa wasn’t real.  We were ok with that.  It wasn’t something we have every really tried to convince our kids of.  It was just a fun tradition.

BUT… we thought it would be fun to mess with them a little.  We borrowed a Santa suit from a friend of ours and set up a video camera.  My husband came in the front door in the suit with a big bag of presents.  He started putting them around the tree quietly.  After he was done, he turned around and saw the milk and cookies that were left out.  He acted surprised and then said, “Yum! Milk and Cookies.”  Now he tried to say it in a jolly Santa voice, but it totally sounded like him.

The funniest part was showing the kids the next morning after they opened their presents.  They were convinced Santa had come in our home…even my oldest was sure it was Santa,  until we got to the milk and cookies part.  My oldest got this funny look on his face and said, “Dad, that sounds like you.”  We played it off pretty good.  I think they believed in Santa for another year or two after that.

This year I am going to tell my kids that “Santa” wants milk and donuts to go.  Santa might get hungry in mid air and need another snack to hold him over until he gets home.  Sadly this is one of those traditions that they have outgrown.  I wonder if they will leave the cookies and milk if I tell them it’s just for me, and that I need the energy to wrap all the gifts?  It’s worth a shot:-)

I am having so much fun with my Lifestyle Crafts die cuts.  How cute is this little treat carrier box?  I can even see it with a bottled Starbucks coffee and some chocolate covered coffee beans for a “thanks a latte” gift for teachers anytime throughout the year.  Make sure you check out the latest Lifestyle craft magazine for fun ways to use the newest die cuts.  And as always you can receive 20% off your order by using the code BRUCREW at checkout.

Today I have one last fun giveaway for you.  Have you enjoyed all the products that I have been able to share with you?

One of the things that I use the most in baking and crafting is baker’s twine.  There is so much that you can do with it.  Wrap it around bakery boxes, tie up cute packages,  add tags to bottles…the uses are endless.  It adds such a fun pop of color to all projects.  Do I have you convinced that twine is something you need?  Honest! I use mine all the time.  One of the places that I like to visit for twine is The Twinery.  They carry so many different colors.  I love how vibrant those colors actually are.  The colors you see online are really the colors you will see when it gets to your house.

Nicole from The Twinery has graciously agreed to give one BruCrew reader a rainbow sampler pack of twine.  You will receive 22 different colors of twine. (15 yards of each color)  I can’t wait to see what the winner will do with all that twine:-)  You can enter to win in the rafflecoptor below.
