Easy Last-Minute DIY Treats For Your Next Holiday Party!

12-18-2018 by Amanda Baltazar

   

 

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, when my family dished out the side dishes, main dishes, and desserts to various members of the family, I was ready to bring a few sweet holiday treats to bring for everyone in the family to enjoy. I myself will be planning 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!
