Santa Hat     

·    16 mini brownie bites

·    16 small strawberries (tops cut off)

·    Homemade frosting or store bought

Next, place the frosting in a zip lock bag and snip off the corner. Then place a swirl of frosting on top of the brownie.

Finally, put the strawberry on top and added a little dot of frosting on top to complete the Santa hat.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Best served the same day.

Peppermint candy platter 

STEP 1

To make a 9-inch platter, unwrap about 65 to 70 peppermint candies. (If you want tomake a larger platter, unwrap more candies and use a bigger pan.)

STEP 2

Line the base of a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper. Arrange the candies in the pan, placing them in a circle around the edge about ¼ inch apart from one another. Continue until you’ve filled the pan, trying to keep an even amount of space between the candies. 

STEP 3

Transfer the pan to a preheated 350°F oven, and bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until the candies are melted and flat. Cool the pan and the peppermint platter completely before unmolding.

STEP 4

Unmold the platter, then top it with cookies and candy. Pat yourself on the back.

Pretzel rod wreath

  • 1 package (10 ounces) pretzel rods, halved

Melted snowmen 

·         Line a cookie tray with either a silicon baking mat or wax paper
