It's no secret the Fixer Upper star loves making progress in the kitchen, but not everyone knows she likes to cook and bake there too! Gaines shared some of her favorite recipes in her first-ever cookbook, Magnolia Table in April 2018, and the multi-talented mom of five also revealed a few Christmas candy recipes on her Instagram story that are great for kids — without a laundry list of ingredients. Courtesy Magnolia Chocolate Peanut Clusters "Chip's favorite — so easy. Dry roasted peanuts in melted chocolate bark and then scoop on wax paper and let cool," Gaines explains.

First, put your favorite peanut butter in between two Ritz," she writes.

Gaines notes, "I like to do half chocolate and half white chocolate flavored cookies." This leaves them extra jazzy!

Remove from oven and then press a pecan half on top and push melted Rolos down," she writes.
