This year, I was really more interested in HAVING baked goods than MAKING baked goods, so I decided to make very simple boxed stuff with only minor decorations: brownies with vanilla melt snowflakes and…. yeah, I’m not gonna talk about the cookies.
If you make the melts designs in advance, while the brownies/cake is cooling, you can place them on top and they’ll melt straight down onto the baked goods. (I’ve never had a problem with them not holding their shape through this process.) Cut the brownies/cake first or you’ll ruin your melts designs.
