Peanut Butter Balls
Tis’ the holiday season! This time of year is definitely my favorite but also the most stressful too. I am sure you can all relate between buying the gifts, making the food, and getting holiday ready in the household. In our family we celebrate both Chanukah and Christmas so organization is totally key in making the transition from the winter to the holiday season seamless. Who has time for stress? NOT I!! Thankfully, Rubbermaid TakeAlongs are there to help make holiday preparation that much easier!IMG_7447

This month alone I have five holiday parties which means I have to bring five desserts or appetizers to the parties. The problem I always encounter is I do not want to bring along my best china to put my desserts on, for fear that I will leave it at my friend’s house. That is why Rubbermaid TakeAlongs are a genius idea. The Rubbermaid TakeAlongs help store and transport everything from baked goods to leftovers, and even deviled eggs. The way they work is that they feature a Quik Clik Seal™ technology which keeps food secure and helps prevent spills in transport. Long gone are the days when the lids don’t close and inevitably everything falls on the floor. Hello are the days when you can transport your foods in a nice container from one house to another during the holiday season.IMG_7444

Since my first party is coming up this weekend, I knew I needed to scout out Walmart for some Rubbermaid TakeAlongs. I found them in the house section near the food storage aisle. They have such fun green and red prints, which would make bringing these to your holiday party a smashing success. Some of the designs of the Rubbermaid  TakeAlongs include TakeAlongs Rectangle, TakeAlongs Deep Square, TakeAlongs Serving Bowl, TakeAlongs Serving Rectangle, TakeAlongs Rectangle, and the Deviled Egg Tray! They have just about everything you are looking for to make your holiday season stress-free and easy!unnamed

I decided to pick up quite a few of the Rubbermaid TakeAlongs for our holiday party. When I was in Walmart, I also thought of some dessert ideas to bring in the Rubbermaid TakeAlongs to my next holiday party. The idea hit me right there-Peanut Butter Balls!Peanut Butter Balls

The balls were so much fun to make and I plan to make a couple more so I can take them with me to every holiday party I have. I may even gift them inside a Rubbermaid TakeAlongs for the teachers this year! I am sure they would appreciate it!IMG_7494
