Build an Oreo turkey with Oreos, candy and frosting. This would be a fun activity for (school-age) kids at a Thanksgiving gathering to put these together. They can display them at their dinner place and eat them for dessert....if they can wait that long. The recipe I am listing will be to make one dozen turkeys.
A fun candy treat to make for a themed party - to pull kids in and inspire imagination! From the RR archives. ;) Maybe for a Japanese dinner party when the kiddos may not eat sushi with you--this might help them participate for dessert? Or just a fun kids party--or even Halloween. ;) I haven't tried these yet, so I guessed on the times, but will update once I do. I am a slow one in the kitchen though!! *Increase amounts according to number of people/portions desired*
This is a peanut-free recipe I developed using
Recipe #87879 by winkki as a base. I had to make these peanut free for my DD's grade one class and this is what I came up with. They turned out great, and I'd like to thank Winkki for a terrific idea!
You can mix chocolate and white chips together if you want to make the full 2 cups.
Makes 20 small nests.
I make these little treats for my son to take to school. It's a perfect, cute little Easter treat. I serve them in the individual over-sized cupcake papers. You could use plain Rice Krispies and/or omit the chick.....still just as cute. Prep time does not include cooling and setting time.
I used a mix of cauliflower from the gardenia mix, broccoli and boccoflower for a contrast of color. I quickly blanched the broccoli and broccoflower heads very quickly (just seconds) in salted boiling water and the chilled to brighten the color!You'll need Styrofoam cone and toothpicks. I also used a platter that has a center with with a dip basin which is not really needed.
Cute idea for the holidays! Little peanut butter reindeer with antlers and M&Ms for the eyes/nose. Haven't tried this yet (saw the finished result in a picture), but I certainly will- just wanted to get the recipe down. From CDkitchen.
These adorable angels are made using a pointed sugar cone to make a 3D angel. The recipe is no-cook so it would be a perfect holiday project for your kids and could be even be used as place cards on the holiday table. They would also make cute party favors for a children's party.
Recipe from LandOLakes.
This is from a cook book by the name of First Capital Favorites of York, PA. I have not tried it but the ingredients and the simplicity of the recipe appealed to me, so I have shared it with you. Cook time is chill time. Hope you enjoy!
No baking necessary and always a big hit!! My niece made these last year for the holidays and I thought they were adorable. We don't like red hots, so I use mini M&M's. This also allows you to use various colors for the eyes and nose.
