Let President’s Choice® Lighten Your Workload This Holiday Season! 

I don’t know about you, but I am pretty sure I am not alone when I say I am stressed to the max, and it isn’t even December!

We still have ALL of our shopping to do; the house is only half decorated; we purchase a fresh tree, so we don’t have that yet; then there is always the decorating of said tree; wrapping of gifts (if they are ever purchased…lol), addressing, writing  and mailing of cards (I’m already contemplating cutting that task from the list);  baking (we always make a  few types of squares and cookies); house cleaning; entertaining and attending holiday functions; oh and everyday life still continues…work, meals, cleaning, grocery shopping, etc!!

OK…I am starting to have heart palpitations just at the thought of what needs to be accomplished in less than 33 days!

Last night I could not sleep, my mind kept going over and over and over what needed to be done, and when or how I would be able to fit it all in. It was as I lie in bed, still wide awake at 4AM, mind racing,  that I came to the realization that this is all utter chaos and something has to change.

The holidays are about being together as family and friends, none of whom care about what is on my ambitious, type A, control freak list!  As I lie awake, I decided four things:

  1. The Christmas cards are only going to be sent to the out of town people, so that whittles the list to a manageable 3 or 4.
  2. My husband and I are going on a marathon shopping spree this Saturday.
  3. All gifts will be “wrapped” in gift bags with some tissue paper poofed on top.
  4. I am either buying or making from a mix the vast majority of the appetizers and sweets that we will be serving this Christmas season.

If like me you have had enough of this madness, listen up!  You are on your own for numbers 1, 2 and 3;  but I can definitely help you out with number 4!

How adorable and simple is this PC® Eat the Middle First Candy Cane Cookies Tree!  This is so simple to make with a couple boxes of cookies, a few dobs of icing and a few coloured candies and would be perfect to send to school or for a child’s Christmas party!

  6. Hello, Can anyone help…I started to stack the cookies for the tree…but it is not turning out right at all…so adorable and perfect for me to take to the Christmas Party.. I need a couple of instructions. Many Thanks

    • Oh no, I am not a pro Cindy but will try my best, what’s happening?

      • Hello, I was sure I replied last night, have no idea what happened to the post….Thanks gain..do you know how many cookies are on the botom layer ??? and is the next layer..is fosting used to hold it to the bottom layer ?? thanks

        • Hi Cindy,

          I’m not sure how many cookies are on the bottom, it may vary depending on how big you want your tree.
          I would assemble it on the actual serving plate and attach all of the cookies with a bit of frosting on the middle of the bottom of the cookie. (I would attach the cookies to the serving plate also) You would then start layering, attaching each cookie with frosting until you get to he top.
          Use frosting to attach the little decorations too. Make sure you frosting is quite thick and if you have a piping bag you could use that to apply the frosting, if not, a knife should work well too.

          Good luck Cindy!
