A few weeks ago, I was browsing Pinterest & saw 2 super cute Christmas treat/snack ideas.
I didn't pin them, but made a mental note that I wanted to make them with the girls.
Our Christmas Break starts late this year...December 21.
Usually, I have a week off school before Christmas & I look forward to that week so that the girls & I can do Christmas Crafts & Baking. Since our break starts so late this year, I making sure I do some crafts/baking before hand. Our first activity was yesterday!
The first snack called for my favorite...powdered sugar donuts.
Here is what you need:
-mini powdered donuts, wooden shish kabob skewers, fruit by the foot, mike & ikes, apple o's, peachy o's, gum drops, mini chocolate chips & black (or brown) cookie icing.
I love these powdered donuts...Can we have a moment of silence for Hostess going out of business?
Take 3 donuts & put them on the wooden skewer.
Add a peachy O or Apple O & then a gum drop for the top hat.
An orange Mike & Ike for the carrot nose.
Use other colored Mike & Ike's for the buttons.
Use mini chocolate chips (or the icing) for the eyes & mouth.
The fruit by the foot is the scarf.
Viola! Powdered Sugar Snowmen!
The girls had a fun time making (and eating) these.
They were cute, but they were MESSY.
Powdered Sugar everywhere. EVERYWHERE.
Also, make sure you get powdered sugar donuts that have small holes...the Entemenn's brand wouldn't work as well because the donut hole part looked WAY too big & candy didn't fit in there. I used Little Debbie. Hostess would have been perfect also, but RIP Hostess.
I saved the leftover candy for our Gingerbread Houses that we are going to make next week.
The second snack we made was:
These were my favorite to make. SO, SO, SO EASY!
Here is what you need:
Mini Chocolate Donuts, Pretzels, Red m&m's, Black Cookie Icing
Break off pieces of Pretzel to make antlers, stick a red m&m in the hole to make the nose & add the eyes with the frosting.
These literally took us 3 minutes to make. Such a fun & easy treat to make!
I don't like the way chocolate donuts taste (I know, I am weird) but these were just too cute!
Here are 2 things I made last year for the December Pinterest Test Kitchen that were cute & that I plan on making again.
