Candy Stuffed Christmas Cookies

Christmas cookies

There are so many wonderful things about Christmas, the gathering of family and friends, the music, and the Christmas spirits (and by spirits I mean cocktails). Usually these things only come together at holiday parties, but now you can enjoy them all throughout the Christmas season. This weekend, my friends came over for a night of Christmas songs, drinks like Guy Fieri's Gingerbling,  a pile of candy, and bowls of cookie dough. This recipe is easy and fun and perfect for a night with friends or for parents to do with children! Just try and resist eating all the cookie dough and candy before baking!
