Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Cookies make a great Santa cookie. They are tasty, fun, and help make the holidays bright. You will be anxious to sink your teeth into these chocolatey cookies with a fun caramel surprise.
Don’t you just love the holiday season? There is just something so fun about decorating for the holidays and baking delicious goodies to share with family and friends, and to leave out for Santa. Especially when you leave out Caramel Stuffed Chocolate cookies.
Today I wanted to share a fun tutorial for holiday decorating, a “snowball” craft and a totally tasty recipe for caramel stuffed chocolate cookies, perfect for leaving for Santa.
I realize there are so many ways to make the holidays merry and bright, which is why I wanted to share my experience with American Greetings. They have an incredible selection of greeting cards, gift wrap, tissue and bags to help you connect with family, friends, neighbors and co-workers this holiday season. Plus the low prices found at Walmart mean you can do this affordably. I love this. I already spend so much during the holiday season, it is nice to save where I can.
Let’s talk about these Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Cookies for a minute. They are rich and chocolate-y, and stuffed with caramel, I know a Santa or two that would love eating them on Christmas eve.
Chocolate + Caramel is always a winning combination, and one that is universally loved, making these an insanely good neighbor gift and treat. You can use them to “Elf” your neighbors with the help of the free Elfing printable you can include with your treat bag with instructions, a poem and small sign for people to hang on their door after they’ve been “Elfed”. It is such a fun way to get in the holiday spirit of giving.
Once you are in the holiday spirit of giving, get your house in the holiday mode with a card banner! This card banner is a fun and festive way to display holiday cards, either in a window, on a door, or on your mantle! I know at Christmas I always get a lot of lovely cards from family and friends, and I want to be able to see them. Not only are they memorable and fun, but sentimental, and a great addition to your decor. So why not make a card banner? Especially when it turns out this cute.
