Fun House: S2, ep 1... Christmas in July!

Welcome to Muddy's Fun House: Super Fantastic At Home Bake-a-long and Variety Show... with your host, Kat from Muddy's!

(New to the Fun House? Here's a little FAQ about the show)

Holy jingle bells, we're in Season 2! So many shows get canceled after the first season... wow, are we honored that the network brought us back! *wink*

For our kickoff episode of Season 2, we celebrate a beloved Muddy's tradition: Christmas in July.  We bake tasty double chocolate peppermint cookies-- the perfect holiday treat that is ultimately designed to enjoy with ice cream! What better bake for Christmas cheer during the hottest month of the year?
