Christmas Stressor Number 1

You are invited to a cookie exchange.
These are words that make me break out in a sweat. 
I can’t cook, much less bake!!!!!! I want to come to the party, but I have to bake cookies AND bring the recipe to share.  That means I can’t go to Harris Teeter, buy cookies and then put them on a pretty plate and pass them off as my own.  One of my best friends just invited me to a cookie exchange where you have to bring 5 dozen cookies.  5 DOZEN COOKIES!!!!  Sure I can build you a house while I’m at it too.  I broke out in a sweat just reading the invite.  To me that is like asking someone who has never picked up a paint brush to bring 5 paintings to share with guests.  Granted Tonya (who I swear is my own real life Mary Poppins) text me after she sent the invite and offered to help me bake some cookies if I came.  She knows me too well.  
So this is my answer to the cookie exchange invite.  I want to come hang out.  But I can’t bake you any cookies that you will want to put in your mouth much less share with your friends.
This sweet lady at a recent Christmas bizarre was handing these out as samples.  I swear they are the best things in the world and if I can make them, ANYONE can make them!
What you need:
Pretzel squares
1.  Put Rolo on pretzel
2.  Microwave for 15 seconds
3.  Smash walnut in Rolo
Done!!!!!  I call them Holiday Destressors.  Just in time to enjoy the cookie exchange!

    Those look Awesome! but I'm pretty sure that is a pecan. Are pecans and walnuts interchangeable?

    Oh I can cook but (she turns her head away in shame) I prefer not to! Yes it is true I am not happy slaving away in the kitchen anymore and any recipe that will make me look like a kitchen diva without the perspiration is a winner in my books! Thanks for this post, you are A-OK #1 in my books!
