With winter upon us – it’s time to bring the warm glow of baking to our homes. These Christmas party food ideas will bring joy to everyones hearts and the kids will love getting involved too.
1. Gingerbread Men
The trick to getting these gingerbread men to hold the sweets is to bake them holding little balls of tinfoil which then takes shape to hold the sweets once baked.
2. Stained Glass Cookies
Make these by cutting out Christmas shapes from sugar cookies and crush up hard boiled sweets for the center. They make great decorations for the tree too so make sure you add a hole with a toot pick before baking.
3. Marshmallow Snowman
If you’re looking for a super quick treat to make – this snowman is perfect and he looks great on top of a steaming mug of hot cocoa. Take 3 marshmallows and place on a pretzel stick. Break another pretzel into bits for arms and legs and use food coloring for details such as the eyes and smile.
4. Edible Reindeer
The perfect treat to leave out for Santa and Rudolph on Christmas night. Take some mini chocolate rolls and slice two slits with a knife to add large pretzel twists as antlers. Use icing to attach the candy eyes and red M&M nose.
5. Melted Snowman Cookies
You don’t have to go out in the cold to make a melted snowman – try making these delicious ones instead. Use food coloring to add a face to marshmallows and drizzle white icing over cookies to attach the marshmallow heads.
6. Christmas Wreath Pops
Transform Oreos into these colorful Christmas wreath pops with white chocolate, sprinkles and M&MS. Pop your cookies into melted white chocalte and add sprinkles and M&Ms.
