Someday, when I'm supposed to bring homemade cookies or cupcakes to a classroom party, I will be forced to go to a bakery and purchase instead of putting my own homemade spin on things. Too bad elementary schools don't have soup parties. I make a mean soup!
Here is what happens when I bake:
Cookie #1: Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods -- You can't get much simpler than dipping pretzels in chocolate and covering them in sprinkles. Yet, somehow I messed these up.
Cookie #2: Peppermint Brownie Bars -- Another easy recipe - refrigerated peppermint sugar cookie mix on the bottom, topped with boxed brownie mix. Yet, somehow, mine look like crap.

Cookie #3: Reindeer Cookies -- These were so cute - and they looked so easy! I used refrigerated cookie dough. However, those chocolate covered pretzel antlers are NOT a good idea. They kept melting and sliding all over the place. Seriously, my reindeer cookies look like they've been infected by zombies.

Cookie #4: Melted Snowman Cookies -- These cookies were ADORABLE and I was so excited to try to make them. Boxed sugar cookies, cookie icing, marshmallows - how could this go wrong? As you can see, it DID go wrong.
