​Double-Duty Winter Treats

Posted by

We love beautiful desserts and sweet treats. We also enjoy a good multi-tasking food item. This winter, there are plenty of desserts and baked goods that are not only delicious, but pretty, as well. We’re showing off some fun ideas for treats that do double duty. We found sugary ornaments, colorful table decorations and tasty gifts.

Have fun creating these fun and scrumptious wintry treats:

Rice krispie trees

Add a few drops of green food coloring and make these in a round pan. They’re ready for a straw tree stump and m&m ornaments. Don’t forget the star on top!

The Classic Tiny House

Gingerbread House

The gingerbread house is a Christmas classic for a reason. Kids love using their imaginations to decorate a mini house with all the candy they can find. Host the decorating party for your kids and let them showcase their masterpieces on the dining room sideboard or the entryway table. They’ll love showing guests their work.

Dip Mix Ornaments

We saw this idea for dip mix ornaments and we fell in love. It’s the perfect way to gift our Rabbit Creek Dip Mixes. Grab a fruit or veggie dip mix, pour it into clean ornaments, and add a ribbon and tag with directions. These make great stocking stuffers, gifts for neighbors, or little extras. Food-safe ornaments with wide openings are your best choice for this craft.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Trees

The little ones in your kitchen will love making (and eating) these adorable trees. Check out the Lovely Little Kitchen to find out how to make them.

Fruity Snowflakes

Grab a box of bright, fruity loop cereal and a length of wire or pipe cleaners. Arrange them in a snowflake pattern and twist together. Let the kids string the wire with cereal and fold the edges over. Add a loop and hang on the tree!
