Tired of the same old paper, tinsel and kitchen-roll tube craft? We have compiled some super cute edible craft ideas for you to try out with kids this Christmas.
Marshmallow SnowmanThings you will need:
Pieces of orange candy
Bamboo SkewersHow to go about it:
Slide three marshmallows on to a bamboo skewer. Stick on a piece of orange candy for the snowman's nose. Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and cook for 30 seconds. Stir the chocolate and make sure it's melted. Dip the skewer in the chocolate and draw on the eyes and hands, and finish off with a cute little smile.
Want to give your snowman a dash of personality? Throw a little fruit roll-up scarf around his neck and add a chocolate peanut butter cup for a smart hat.
Strawberry SantasThings you will need:
Cream Cheese – 125 g
Icing sugar – 2 tablespoons
Vanilla Essence – ½ teaspoon
Chocolate icing or chocolate sprinklesHow to go about it:
Cut off the bottom and the pointed top part of the strawberries. Keep the top part aside for the Santa hats. Whip together the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla essence in a bowl. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag and pipe it on top of each of the strawberries. Place the hat back and pipe on a bobble right at the top of the hat. Add a few buttons down the front. Stick the chocolate sprinkles for the eyes or pipe them with some chocolate icing. Your strawberry Santas are now ready to find their way to the serving plates!
Chocolate-Dipped Pretzel ReindeersThings you will need:
Edible eyes/ Pieces of marshmallow
Red candy for the noseHow to go about it:
Carefully cut the pretzels twists into halves for the reindeers' antlers. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for 30 seconds. Dip the antlers in the chocolate and leave them out to dry. Keep two pieces close to each other to make a pair of antlers. Now, dip a pretzel stick in the chocolate and place it on the antlers. Stick on the edible eyes and a red candy for the nose. Allow your pretzel Reindeers to dry for a few minutes before your hungry little helpers decide to dive in.
