This holiday season we have been busy in our kitchen. My daughter and I have been.baking our favorite holiday treats and discovering new recipes as we get closer to Christmas. We recently tried a new recipe inspired by the Land O’Lakes holiday giftgiving brochure.

While shopping at Walmart, I visited the grocery section to purchase the ingredients for our holiday baking recipe. Land O’Lakes butter is a favorite in our home with so many yummy options. Most of our holiday recipes include butter so we go through quite a bit of Land O’Lakes butter during this time of year.

Our Peanut Butter Santa Hats are easy to make and my daughter enjoyed helping in the kitchen.


  • 1/2 cup Land O’Lakes butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate baking chips or almond bark
  • red sugar sprinkles
  • butter crackers

You also need wax paper to place the hats on after they have been dipped in chocolate and cookie sticks.

4) Before chocolate is completely dry, top with red sprinkles. Add a white baking chip to the top of the Santa hat.

If you’re gifting the treats, consider placing cookie sticks in a piece of dry foam (found in the floral section at Walmart) to stand upright. Put the foam in the bottom of a cute holiday cup and you have a perfect gift!
