Holiday parties, family & friend get-togethers, and potlucks. It's that time of year.

 

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the best cook; actually I don't cook, but I can DIY! And cooking is just like DIY-ing but with food, right? Right! All you need is a little creativity, determination, and a good recipe! Once Thanksgiving ended, I scoured YouTube for some easy, tasty, and awesome holiday DIY treats, and I was blessed with a ton of options, from rice crispy treats and smoothies to muddy buddies, I was in holiday DIY treat heaven.

 

So this year, while my family dishes out the side dishes, main dishes, and desserts to various members of the family, I'll be ready to bring a few sweet holiday treats for everyone in the family to enjoy. I plan on making the Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Sticks and the Melted Snowman Cookies that you'll see below! 

 

Here are a few of my favorite holiday DIY treats from awesome DIY YouTube channels!
