5 Family Holiday Traditions:

  1. Christmas Eve Service as a family
  2. Drive around looking at lights
  3. See a family movie, like SING© (So excited to see this!)
  4. Make Christmas cookies & treats together
  5. Deliver Christmas treats to friends & family

One of my favorite things to do is spend an afternoon in the kitchen I’ve shared a few of our seasonal favorites with you in the past, including Apricot Bark & Spiced Nuts. This time I’m sharing a new treat to add to your treat platter….  Honey Bunches of Oats® Almond Treats! These are similar to Rice Krispy Treats, but pack more nutrients into each bite with their honey oat clusters and toasty almonds. Top with a little bit of dark chocolate and you have a treat worth indulging in!

Step 1:

Grab your coupon for Honey Bunches of Oats® (click for a COUPON!)

Step 2:

Run over to Target or Albertsons & pick up Honey Bunches of Oats® (I opted for Almond for an extra crunch but the honey is yummy too!). I opted to head to Target with my coupon so that I could also peruse the fun holiday decorations!
