Easy Christmas Cow Pies

I love giving gifts homemade from my kitchen this time of the year and Christmas Cow Pies are a super simple treat anyone can make!  Creamy milk chocolate, almonds and craisins come together in this sweet holiday treat!

I LOVE easy to make holiday treats and these candies could not be any easier to make. I found the original recipe over at Allrecipes!  Milk chocolate is melted in the microwave, almonds and craisins are added, then the candies are dropped onto waxed paper or parchment, and chilled until set.  Top them with festive sprinkles or leave them plain...it's your choice!

These make a great homemade holiday treat for eating or for gift giving.  To give as gifts, dress them up in some clear cellophane bags tied with a colorful ribbon.

These yummy fruit and nut clusters can be made like I did here, with almonds and craisins, or you can use peanuts and raisins if you like.  It's a super simple, super delicious treat I like to make
 every year!  The hardest part is trying to keep your husband from eating them all in one night!

To grab the recipe to this holiday favorite, head over to Mandy's Recipe Box, where this recipe is my December contribution to her beautiful blog!
