Thanksgiving Day Treats – Quick and Easy by Nikki Boxler

The holidays are upon us which means we spend most of our time in the woods, working and of course running errands.

With so much to do and so little time, I like to have recipes on the back burner (pun intended) that I can turn to when I am in a time crunch. Here are a few quick snacks that the entire family will enjoy. The best part is both recipes share the same 3 core ingredients!
