These Christmas Bar Recipes are a great addition to any party. These are also great to give as gifts to family, friends and co-workers. Buy a pretty Christmas plate and put a variety of cookies, candy and bars from my site, wrap in plastic with a pretty bow on top. This makes a very inexpensive and thoughtful holiday gift.
P.S. A recipe card with the recipe included adds a nice touch.
