12 Days of Christmas yummies and treats : Christmas Sugar Cookie Bark

      10th day of our 12 days of Christmas yummies and treats. It is indeed almost Christmas Day. There are just a few knick knacks that I have to get for hubby's Christmas stocking .Browsing through Facebook and IG , I see how busy and over scheduled some families are during this time of the year. To each his own of course, some families strive on being busy. I don't. We don't .

During the busiest time of the year, in between school activities, performances , parties , pot luck's , getting our house all dolled up and Christmas shopping, it is very important to not spread ourselves thin. We should spend QUALITY and LOVING time with friends and family. Not dividing our time so much that we almost forget what Christmas is about. The true meaning of Christmas is LOVE ( John 3:16–17 ) . It is also about giving , sharing and serving others.







Ingredients:

1 (16.5 oz) roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
a package of  candy melts OR 2 cups white chocolate chips. ( I found out that I didn't have any white Candy melts when I started baking already but have lots of pink..but white is much better )
1 1/2 cups of  M&Ms
1/2 cup of crushed candy cane

Directions:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Flour your rolling pin ( if you don't have a rolling pin , a drinking glass would work just flour it real good) and your working surface to keep the dough from sticking.


Roll out the sugar cookie dough to 1/4 inch thickness on a parchment-lined  or foiled line cookie sheet. 

Bake for 10-12 minutes .

Let cool for at least 20 minutes.

Melt your candy melts or white chocolate chips according to package instructions.
They burn easily so do intervals of 10-15 seconds.
 Prepare the candy toppings.


Spread the melted candy coating with a spatula or spoon on top of sugar cookie .

Sprinkle it with M&Ms and crushed candy canes.

Let it cool so the candy coating sets up completely before it breaking apart.

Beautiful and yummy too!



Here's a great reminder:
