One of the holiday traditions we have started creating with our kids is going to Santa’s Workshop at The North Pole in Colorado Springs Colorado. We were so happy to bring Grandma and Grandpa “from Arizona” to join us. It was a perfect chilly winter day. We were bundled up in our snow gear but had a fantastic time.
Once the stockings were hung and the tree decorated perfectly we jumped right into some treats and crafts! The best part of the holidays – treats and crafts! Ha! My kids absolutely agree with me.
I pulled out a craft we saved from last Christmas, color your own mug craft. It was a hit. These little artists were busy for over an hour! They are perfect too, a memory we will have for a long time.
My kids have found a new love of Chocolate and Peanut Butter thanks to their dad so I knew that the first treat of the Christmas season needed to include those ingredients. I decided to make some Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cookie Pops. Yes, they taste as good as they sound, oh and in true Censie fashion – they are super easy too!
While the kids worked on coloring their hot cocoa mugs I focused on these delicious treats that I plan on making again for Santa in a few weeks…I know he will approve.

To complete our Thanksgiving weekend (Christmas kick off weekend) we got the kiddos in their PJs and let them enjoy the cookie pops and Swiss Miss® Hot Cocoa with marshmallows in their newly decorated hot cocoa mugs.

Your Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cookie Pops look great! I love that they're no-bake, and a fun way to include the kids in holiday treat making. They're a great idea for holidays year round too.
We usually make sugar cookies for Santa, or plain chocolate chip if I'm in a time crunch. (Santa prefers the sugar cookies though 😉 ) Christmas cookies are one of my favorite things about the holidays.

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating Thanksgiving. Going to Santa workshop sounds like a blast. Love how your family celebrates making crafts together. The detailed pictures of the pops look easy enough for the whole family to make together.

During the holiday season, we love to make yummy treats together as a family, too. I love the way your cookie pops came out. They look so fun and festive. They're perfect for a holiday party. I can't wait to try these!

Yum these are just like tagalongs…my favorite girl scout cookies before I discovered samoas! Unfortunately I have a recently discovered peanut allergy, but I'd totally make these for the kids to scarf down!

I love your kids' hot cocoa mugs! So cute and special. I can't wait to try your Santa Cookie Pops, either. They're so festive! I'm certain that my kids will love them, and Santa will, too. 🙂

These are so cute it looks like your family is really getting into the spirit of the season. I will have to share this with my daughter, we love doing stuff like this. Those pops look so yummy I am sure she will want to make them right away!
Lisa Codina says
Those look delicious! I'm thinking Santa might want those left for him on Christmas Eve…I'll ask the kids what they think 😉

So funny–our Grandparents are differeniated by state as well! 😀 The Grandparents here are "Poppa and Grandma from Texas" and the others (my parents) are "Poppa and Grandma from Wyoming" 😀 XD So cute! Love this idea for Santa, too, and the mug craft is a great idea as well!
