Now that Halloween is over, I’m all about everything Christmas! I’m one of those annoying people who start playing Christmas music on November 1st & have to stop to “ooh” & “aah” at everything in the holiday section at every store. I’m already making my bucket list, and doing some easy Christmas baking is high on that list! While I’m not ready to fire up the oven quite yet, I’m enjoying some cute and festive holiday treats, like these Cherry Mice!

-12 Hershey’s Kisses
