As I’ve written before, Thanksgiving and the weeks leading up to Christmas aren’t filled with happy memories for us. We’ve had a number of family members pass away during this time so it’s a little bittersweet. That’s why Rosie and I try to focus on the positives leading up the holidays. This year, we decided to #SpreadCheer with Betty Crocker. So much fun to surprise our neighbors and remind them how special they are to us.
My daughter loves to bake but we don’t always have the time (or desire) to bake from scratch. Betty Crocker makes it easy to make holiday treats with their mixes. All you do is add butter, an egg and a tablespoon of water and you’re good to go. They’re perfect to introduce your little one to baking because they’re so easy to use and delicious. My teen can make them all by herself so we keep a couple of packages around for when the baking urge hits her.
Rosie chose sugar cookies because she made some incredible icing that she didn’t want to go to waste. And, if we’re honest, she’ll never pass up an opportunity to play with sprinkles. After she baked the cookies and let them cool, she was ready to start making a treat that would #SpreadCheer throughout our neighborhood.
We found some adorable boxes at the craft store that we thought would be perfect for the surprise. With Betty Crocker’s tags and a huge bow, they turned out adorable. Since we’ve been in the middle of an ice storm for three days, we didn’t get any pictures of the drop-off to neighbors but I bundled my teen up and sent her across the street. Big smiles all around.
Why don’t you continue to #SpreadCheer this holiday season? Betty Crocker’s made it easy. You can download a coupon and use the FREE printables they’ve created from their website. Once you #SpreadCheer, package your goodies up for delivery, snap a pic and share on your social media. Then, nominate three of your friends to join in as well. To keep the holiday cheer going, one of my lucky readers will win $20 in Pay Pal cash. That way, you can win some cash to put together your own basket of treats!
