19 Amazing Christmas Treats I’ll NEVER Have the Time to Make

Amazing Christmas Treats I'll NEVER have the time to make!!
We’ve all pinned them – those gorgeously decorated sugar cookies, the clever cookies that look like mugs of hot cocoa, snowmen that are comprised of no fewer than 10 different pieces of candy, pretzels, etc, etc. no bigger than an inch… And if you’re anything like me, you haven’t done a thing with any of those pins.  This crazy video is floating around Facebook, and all I can think of is: seriously? Who has that much time to spend decorating a SINGLE cookie? 

Don’t get me wrong – I think these are incredible! I just… don’t have that much time to spend five minutes per serving on Christmas treats! I prefer the decadent squares that make 24+ servings in 20 minutes. Anyhow, check out the rest of my favourite Christmas treats that I will never, in this child-centred phase of life, have the time to make.

I live in Hamilton, Ontario, and love my city. I'm a Netflixer, choral music geek, bookworm, inventor of recipes (I take Artistic Licence on EVERYTHING that I make), wife of one, mother of two, and owner of a neurotic Schnauzer. I respect people who respect others. I love good food that's well done, but my favourite lunch is KD & hotdogs. With ketchup. I'm addicted to Clearance Shopping. I will ALWAYS get the product that I want at the price that I want, eventually.


  1. I thought the penguin one was kind of gruesome, myself. Toothpick through the head, noose around his neck…

  2. This CRACKED ME UP! Hahahaha. And let me tell you, I’m single and don’t have any kids buuuuuut I still don’t have time to do all that. :)
