The festive season is upon us and Christmas is just around the corner. Everyone’s counting down the days, opening up their advent calendars day by day, decorating their homes with fairy lights and tinsel, and putting up Christmas trees. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. And you know what can make it even better? Fun and delicious Christmas treats. Because everyone knows that food that looks cute tastes better. So here are a couple of ideas that might inspire you to cook some fun treats for you or your family and friends.
1. Polar Bear Hot Chocolate
We all know hot chocolate is best with marshmallows and if you can make them look fun – it’s the best. This is so easy to achieve, just grab some candy, different sized marshmallows and use melted chocolate as glue.
2. Deer Rice Krispies
Why make regular ones if you can make them look like deer with just some M&Ms, melted chocolate and candy eyes?
3. Polar Bear Cookies
You could use your favorite sandwich cookie recipe or just dip store-bought ones into white chocolate and add ears, noses and eyes using candy and melted chocolate.
4. Mint Snowman Marshmallows
Did you know you can make your own marshmallows? Oh yeah, it’s pretty easy actually and you can make them look however you want. All you really need is gelatin and sugar.
5. Gingerbread Cookies With Ombre Buttercream
All you really need to make the ombre buttercream is two shades of food coloring. Just make two or three batches and put them in the bag one after another.
6. Reindeer Cake Pops
I mean, you can’t really do Christmas treats and not try to make a reindeer cake pop, can you? You could, but you’d be wrong.
