1. Reindeer Sandwich
Your little kids will love to make this innovative sandwich that looks like a reindeer and tastes delicious.
Whole wheat bread
Two tablespoons of honey
Handful of raisins
A few marshmallows
A few cherries
1. Take a slice of whole wheat bread.
2. Now, take generous quantities of peanut butter in a spreading knife and smear over the slice liberally.
3. Next, get hold of the second slice and fix it over the first slice uniformly. The layer of peanut butter will act as the cementing material between the slices.
4. With a bread cutting knife, cut the edges of the bread neatly and slit the sandwich diagonally in such a way that it becomes two triangles.
5. Consider one of the points as the nose of the reindeer. Thus, dab generous quantities of honey over that corner and affix a big, red cherry so that a prominent nose is formed.
6. Now, at the other two corners you need to make an antler each. Slide in a pretzel at each of these corners in such a way that their edges protrude out of the sandwich.
7. At the final stage you need to make an eye. Therefore, dab honey in the spot you think will be right for the eye of the reindeer. Then place a marshmallow over it, smear some more honey and put a raisin on top of it to form the pupil of the eye. Follow the similar method to make another eye of the reindeer. And your reindeer sandwich is ready to serve.
2. Crunchy Snowman Pretzels
Pretzels had never been so unique and apt for the Christmas holidays before the snowman pretzels came into existence. This unique dish will encourage the cooking skills of your kids further.
1 cup white chocolate chips
Dark chocolate chips
Colorful gel or icing paste for decoration
Fruit leather of different colors
Multicolored gummy rings
1. Put the white chocolate chips in a saucepan and subject the pan to medium flame until the chocolate melts completely.
2. Get hold of a spoon or a smearing knife in one hand and a pretzel in another hand. Now, dip one tip of the pretzel in melted white chocolate and smear it to two third portions of the same with the spoon or the knife.
3. Next, put a waxed paper on the kitchen top and lay the chocolate coated pretzels on it.
4. Affix dark mini chocolate chips on to the pretzel sticks when the chocolate coating is still soft. The mini chocolate chips will serve to make the eyes and buttons of the coat of the showman.
5. Use the orange gel to make the carrot nose of the snowman.
6. When the chocolate coating gets completely hardened, place the pretzels inside a glass and insert fruit leather inside each of the pretzel sticks to make scarves.
7. At the final stage, make a hat with gummy ring for each of the pretzels and affix it on top of each of them with gumdrop and a dab of melted chocolate.
3. Snowflaked popcorn
Let the frost of the season shed on the popcorn that your kid will make during the Christmas holidays. This novel popcorn recipe will be an exciting one for all.
Popcorn of any flavor
A jar of marshmallow crème
Handful of candy sprinkles in red and green color
1. In a tray, spread large sheets of cookies with a cooking spray. Now, set the microwave at a temperature of 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Next, cook the popcorn in the microwave oven.
3. At the next stage, empty the entire jar of marshmallow crème into a medium sized bowl and put inside the microwave without a covering lid. Leave it like that for two minutes till the crème melts completely. Take out the bowl after that and stir vigorously.
