Christmas Milk

How about "red",  or "green" milk or milk shakes? Simply add food coloring.


Fruit Kebobs

Select a variety of fruit such as strawberries, green grapes, watermelon, and kiwi. Cut into bite size pieces and put on to a skewer.

 

Chocolate Covered Snowman Pretzels

Ingredients Needed:

Bag of Pretzel Rods
1 cup white chocolate chips
Mini chocolate chips or white melting chocolate
Orange decorators' gel
Fruit roll ups (various colors)
Gummy rings
Gumdrops
Wax Paper

Melt 1 cup of white chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler or microwave.

One at a time, dip one end of an 8-inch pretzel rod in the melted chocolate and use a plastic spoon or knife to spread the chocolate two thirds of the way down the rod.

Set the pretzels on a sheet of waxed paper and press on mini chocolate chips for eyes and buttons. Use orange decorators' gel to add a carrot nose.

When the chocolate has hardened, stand the pretzels in a mug or glass and tie on strips of fruit roll up for scarves. For each hat, stretch a gummy ring over the narrow end of a gumdrop and secure it on the pretzel rod with a dab of melted chocolate.

Hot Chocolate Cones

Ingredients Needed

Cocoa Mix
Cone-shaped cellophane bags (available at party stores and Michaels craft store) Size 6 x 12 inch.
Clear rubber bands
Chocolate Chips
Mini Marshmallows
Red gumdrops
Scissors

How to Make it

Pour 3/4 cup  of cocoa mix into one of the cellophane bags.  Secure the bag with a clear rubber band. and trim the end of the bag 1 inch above the band.  Flatten the top of the bag (so it does not stick up) and place it into a second cellophane bag.  Then layer 1/4 cup of chocolate chips, and then 3/4 cup of marshmallows.  Top with a red gumdrop and secure the bag with a clear rubber band.

 

Veggie Tray

Use red and green vegetables such as red and green peppers, grape tomatoes, celery and broccoli.  Cut into bite size pieces and arrange on a tray.  Add some ranch dressing for dipping.

 

Ice Cream Sundae Party

Select a variety of topping such as M&Ms, crushed Oreo cookies, chopped Milky Way bars, and sprinkles

Include hot fudge sauce and caramel

Lots of whipped cream

Maraschino cherries

Keep the selection of ice cream to a minimum.  Sticking to vanilla is usually your best bet.

Have the kids come up in small groups. An adult should scoop out the ice cream and then have them select their own toppings. An adult should then add the whipped cream to their creation

The kids will love it!!!
