Food Friday

This Christmas cutie has lots of fun teachers and friends that needed some Christmas goodies from our kitchen. So, Mama got to work and we made some fun things to take to church and school.

We made these for his friends at church and his former teachers at daycare.
You take a Nutter Butter and dip it in chocolate bark and sit it on wax paper with a Popsicle stick on the back. Place mini chocolate chips for the eyes and a red hot for the nose. Break a round pretzel in half for the antlers. I put them in small clear bags and closed them with ribbon. They were so cute and so much fun!

We made smores kits for his friends at school and to add to our neighbors goodie tins. The card attached said, "Have SMORE fun this Christmas! Love, Henry". We put a snowman Peep in the clear bag with 2 graham cracker squares and a small Hershey bar. I tied them off with ribbon and attached the little card by punching a hole in it and running it through the ribbon.

Henry will miss his party at school this week due to our travels, but I wanted him to have something to give to his friends anyway. He loves his little school friends so much!

Because I was tapped out in creativity and time after making teacher gifts and our annual holiday candy to give neighbors and family, I gave my pals at work these wrapped candy boxes for little Christmas happies. I got the $1 movie candy boxes and wrapped them with this cute little wrapper I found on Pinterest. It was easy, cheap and made them!

Our little foodie has been so busy getting ready for Santa. He and his Daddy went to shake some of their wiggles out at the park. We made Henry wear his ski bibs because it was so cold. He looked like Ralphie's brother on the Christmas Story after we added his jacket and gloves. Sweet little Henry!

Happy Food Friday!
