Our kitchen is under renovation. At this very moment the contractor is removing my kitchen floor, all four layers of it. That means we don't have a stove -- at least one plugged into electricity -- and we won't have one until next Thursday when the new floor will be installed. After that, it will still be a while before the kitchen is put back together. We'll be waiting on a new countertop, plumbing, etc. but at least I might possibly still be able to put together a batch of these cookies in time for the return of my grown sons for Christmas.
If you're having any trouble finding Christmas colored M&Ms, I've found them right here on Amazon.
