#SpreadCheer with Betty Crocker {Plus $20 PayPal Giveaway}

One of my favorite movies to watch during the holidays is definitely Elf.  I can’t help but smile every time Buddy says “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”  I’m definitely not a singer, but that isn’t stopping me from spreading Christmas cheer.  I found another way everyone can spread cheer during the holidays regardless if they can carry a tune or not.  Cookies!  Who doesn’t love cookies?!  And the best part is you don’t even have to be talented in the kitchen because Betty Crocker has you covered.

Betty Crocker meets Buddy the Elf

Last week Willow and I decided that we were going to surprise my sister with some delicious Betty Crocker Christmas cheer.  She works at the County Health Department where she handles nuisance complaints daily and though she enjoys her job we thought it would be nice for her to get surprised with some cheer at work instead of a complaint.  After dropping the big sisters off at school we made a quick stop by Target to pick up some Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix as well as Betty Crocker Cookie Icing and some festive sprinkles.  While there we also made a pit stop at the dollar spot where we found some perfect items to put together an adorable basket of cheer.

When we got home Willow couldn’t wait to get to work baking cookies for her Aunt Courtney.  She was so excited that I let her help with everything from start to finish.  First she mixed the ingredients – Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix, butter, and an egg.  So simple, yet so delicious.

Once everything was mixed Willow would scoop a tablespoon of dough out of the bowl which I would then form into  a ball.  We then baked them in the oven until the edges were a light golden brown.

After the cookies were completely cooled it was time to decorate.  We used Betty Crocker Cookie Icing since it hardens allowing us to stack the cookies for our basket of cheer.  Willow’s little hands got tired after icing a few cookies so I finished up the rest, but she was a master at sprinkle distribution!

She was even better at taste testing the finished product.  I may have sampled a cookie or two as well.

While we waited for the Betty Crocker Cookie Icing to harden Willow and I got to work assembling our basket of cheer.  The first step was to visit the Betty Crocker website for some free #SpreadCheer printables.

We lined a darling wire basket with a festive kitchen towel.  Placed our delicious decorated Betty Crocker Sugar Cookies in a beautiful red jar.  Added in an ice cold bottle of milk.  Tossed in a plate and set of coasters.  Then tied  on the finishing touch with a #SpreadCheer tag and cute Christmas ornament.

We also printed the Betty Crocker “Your Cheer Is Here” instructions.  Willow was excited to hold this paper up when we delivered our basket of cheer, but it also explained to our recipient what #SpreadCheer is all about and how they can continue the chain by spreading cheer too.

Your Cheer Is Here

Willow was so excited to deliver our basket of cheer to her Aunt Courtney and Courtney was even more excited to receive it.  She especially liked the added touches of cold milk and the super cute plate.  We wanted her to be able to enjoy her cheer right then and there.  Courtney even began spreading some cheer around her office by sharing cookies with her co-workers.
