What’s the Project? This Christmas muddy buddies recipe is so good you won’t be able to stop eating it. It’s great for holiday parties. Package it up cute and you’ve got a cute and yummy holiday gift for the season as well!
This project combines a few things that I love.
First of all, I love all things chocolate but make it muddy buddies and I am a real goner! I made these Candy Cane Christmas Muddy Buddies and just love how they turned out so I will share the recipe with you.
Second, I packaged them up all cute with glittery tags and ribbon and fun containers. All this while listening to Christmas music and my kids “helping” me makes for a fun project!

Cute Christmas Treat Packaging Ideas:
I just grabbed some fun supplies at the craft store and had fun putting together some options. Here’s some of what I used:
- Fry containers and the red boxes (LOVE!)
- Glitter Tags
- Snowflake cutouts
- Baker’s Twine
- Peal and Stick Labels and Stickers
Then I just put it all together. You just need some glue to attach things. I used hot glue. You can probably also use craft glue.
Here are some samples of what I did. And let me tell you, my boys were also involved in this and loved it! So simple and turns out so pretty!
I made a variety of the fry boxes with fun embellishments like snowflake cutouts and ribbon:
Also, I used some of the stickers from the set to decorate these: (That little snowman is a sticker.)
And I made these little glitter gift tags. Anything with glitter wins me over:
Now, packed this up cute and take it to a friend!
I hope you love making, eating, and giving this Christmas muddy buddies mix!
