Ingredients

  • An assortment of your favorite Christmas cookies in different shapes and sizes
  • Fudge / truffles
  • Candy Canes
  • Miniature ornaments
  • Mini holiday lights

Instructions

  1. Pick an assortment of your favorite Christmas cookies / fudge / truffles, at least four to five in different shapes and sizes. You can fill your box with a medley of store-bought and / or homemade holiday treats.. Start with an open wooden box and use dividers to separate your cookies. We found our box at Michaels but you can also try Homesense, Winners, or even Walmart in the craft section. If you don’t have a wooden box, you can also use a sturdy heavy-duty cardboard box and add dividers or tissue paper.
