I’ve been in a baking mood for awhile. So when I came across a recipe that combined chocolate, Oreos AND peanut butter, I knew I had to try it out.(The full recipe can be found here.)
The eyes are dark chocolate covered pomegranate seeds, the Rudolph nose is a sliced piece of strawberry licorice and I attached everything with cool whip frozen frosting (for a better taste).
A similar recipe can be found here.
Like my earlier post about hamburger cookies, I have a thing for mini foods and sweets. These mini donuts were another family favorite growing up because they’re easy to make and fun for kids to decorate. I used a basic donut recipe (found here) and piped the dough into a tray with small rings.
The exciting part is creating the variety of decorations. Shake made donuts in a bag full of cinnamon and sugar, dip the tops in chocolate icing, roll in powdered sugar, ETC.
This Thanksgiving I volunteered to assist my mother in the kitchen. But needing to make my contribution cute, I offered to make the appetizers:
A hummus dip “turkey:”
(tri-colored bell peppers, carrots, celery, and fuji apples)
and veggie “boats:”
Beware: you might need some alternate appetizers that people are more likely to eat.
Miniature foods are always more adorable than regular-sized bites. What makes them even better? When mini foods are made to look like other delicious foods!
These “hamburger cookies” are made from Nilla Wafers and Keebler’s Fudge Mint Grasshoppers (though Girl Scout Thin Mints also suffice). The recipe can be found here.
For an added dose of adorable, dip the tops in vegetable oil and sprinkle on sesame seeds, etc.
