Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes with Betty Crocker, Hershey's and Shaws #sponsored #ad #SpreadCheer

It's December 7th people, time to get serious!  This is around the time when I'm starting to get a little less comfortable about what lies ahead. Christmas parties, get togethers, baking, gifts, wrapping, you name has to be done!  It always seems like we're pulled in so many different directions this time of year.  I love giving and being part of the community too.  There's just a lot to get done and time is of the essence.
I'm happy to tell you that help is out there, especially when it comes to your holiday baking! Betty Crocker™ and Hershey’s® makes things a little more manageable with a few shortcuts, great for your holiday treats! Your local Shaws is stocked with all the Betty Crocker and Hershey's baking supplies needed to make life a little easier. I was thrilled to find a wide variety of baking mixes, frosting and a variety of Hershey's chocolate chips for my baking needs. Love and ease are baked right in when sharing yummy treats with family and friends!  The timing was perfect too, as our local elementary school was supplying treats for our city's annual tree lightening.  What a perfect time to spread cheer throughout the community!
