It takes just 10 minutes to make, they’re completely customizable and best of all, they’re so inexpensive! If you bake on a regular basis, you’ll have all the ingredients on hand. The only thing I had to buy was the seasonal m&m’s but feel free to use whatever type of candy or chocolate chips that you already have. I just wanted to go the more festive route which is why I chose the green and red m&m’s.
