I do not cook.

But for some reason, I find baking to be v relaxing and a great way to decompress.

Growing up, I would make toffee with Carms for the holidays and would distribute to all of her friends.

As an “adult” I decided that my gift to friends and fam during Christmas would be the llama cookies.

To make the scarves, take the candy tape (which I purchased from Smart and Final) and separate the pink from the red. You can do this either by hand, or with a pizza cutter.

If you are OCD like me and prefer the scarves to be vibrant red as opposed to the snow crusted (as seen above), you’ll take the sour tape candy and wet under the sink.

Dry off, and wrap around the neck.

Lastly, to give your llama some character, use the black gel pen to the create eyes.

I give these to friends in a cellophane bag with a yarn ribbon and a holiday tag.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas.
