5 of my Favourite Treats to make at Christmas

Move over butter, white flour and white sugar…..these still sweet and deliciously satisfying

treats have a place on your counter this Christmas.

image001Last year at Move Your Body Studio, I offered

up these tasty treats after classes and they were gobbled up with requests for seconds!

You can bet that I will be making them again and pleasing my participants!

I also love putting them in pretty jars and handing them out as gifts.

Not only are these goodies super yummy but they freeze really well so you can

make a lot at once and then have some time to chill during the holidays.

Enjoy as you put some bliss in your balls this Christmas

and make treats that are on your “nice” not “naughty” list.

I’d love to hear what treats you are making during the holidays.
