Sometimes, when I introduce a recipe, I say something along the lines of “this could not be any easier.”  And I think I said something similar when sharing my Santa Hat Mini Cupcakes a few years ago.  In mom-of-one-child-land, the easiest recipe involved minimal baking, minimal decorating, and maximum cuteness.

My friends, we have entered a whole new land over here.  One which two children.  And two holiday parties on the same day.  One where every morsel of holiday party deliciousness is purchased at Costco or Trader Joe’s a day or two prior to the party and no extra decorations are considered and I forget about plates and napkins until the day of in a serious food blogger lazy move.  But ya know what?  It didn’t really seem to matter {Or at least all of my guests were polite enough to act like it didn’t.  We had plenty of wine and beer so that probably helped.} .

The only ounce of effort that was put into making this spread remotely Christmas themed was a quick little 10 minute project that happened about 30 minutes before my guests were scheduled to arrive.  Brownie bites, canned cream cheese frosting and strawberries were purchased making this completely semi-homemade and absolutely no baking required.  And even though our holiday party was on a relatively chilly Southern California evening with the rain drizzling down outside, I was still happy to skip the oven.

So if you’ve got that party coming up tomorrow and you want to look impressive without actually doing anything impressive, I’m your girl.  Whip this one up and call it a day.  You’re welcome.

If you’re fancy, look back at some of my other holiday recipes, which, while still simple, have a little more…well…baking to them.
