Christmas is coming and your....low on cash ?

What are you going to do?! Your low on cash and you have to buy a ton of Christmas gifts! Well don't worry, your not the only one. The economy is getting worse by the second and Christmas can be a little bit on the expensive side. Well I have a solution for you! I have a lot of friends that I give gifts to around Christmas and it becomes costly. I don't wanna be rude and get them something cheap if they get me something really nice. So I make homemade gifts, and I save probably about $30-$60. I love to bake so I incorporated my baking skills into my creativity skills and I bake sweets from scratch. Such as, brownies, cookies, cupcakes, and sometimes even chocolate covered pretzels. Last year I made chocolate covered pretzels and my friends absolutely loved it. I even had one of my friends this year tell me that they were excited about what I'm making for Christmas this year! I was so happy. This year I'm going to make Andes Mint Chocolate Brownies. So this time I cheated a little and bought a huge pack of the baking mix. The reason I did this is because I'm making brownies for out of state family and friends. On black Friday I went to Target and I found a Ghiradelli Brownie Baking Mix and you can make four batches of a dozen, and it only costs $8! I was so amazed, then I bought the Andes mints on the side to add and I bought cute Christmas bags to put them in. Hopefully that will help you save some money. Feel free to comment or email me any questions you have. Happy Holidays! Click here for recipes.
