Hello there! My name is Melissa and I’m the girl behind the Polka Dot Chair Blog. My goal at the Polka Dot Chair is to inspire you to want to make something! Whether it’s a sewing project, a craft or a yummy recipe I want you to leave feeling inspired to create!
Today I am so excited to be participating in my second Bake Along! Thank you so much to Rachel for having me back for a second year. I’m going to share with you a recipe that’s been in my family for years. My Mom always used to make these yummy bites to take to friends and family at Christmas time. I loved that she made them but hated that she gave them away!
They are an addicting combination of Graham Cracker, Marshmallow and Coconut and I can NEVER eat just one, so I always give them away too!
I love giving handmade and home cooked gifts for the Holidays and I love thinking of fun and easy ways to package them up. So today I have for you not only a recipe, but also a FREE printable for the sticker on the front of the cups! Stop by my blog, enter the giveaway and download your free printable!
Now for the recipe!
I’m torn, y’all.
I want Melissa to be my neighbor so I can benefit from all her crafty awesomeness, but I don’t.. because she’ll totally make me look like the no crafting person I really am.
I seriously adore her and am thrilled to have her back for a second year!!!!!
