Christmas is a time for spending time with loved ones and of course is a time for eating some great food! To get you all into the Christmas spirit, we have come up with some non-bake, quick and easy Christmas treat recipes that you can make with your little ones for Santa coming!

Marshmallow Snowman

The kids will love making these fun little snowmen! All you will need is:

  • 2 bags of Marshmallows
  • Skewers
  • 1 packet of Strawberry Laces
  • Black & orange icing
  • Thin piping bag

 

  1. Take three marshmallows, and slide the onto a skewer
  2. Use the strawberry laces to wrap them around the snowman’s neck for a scarf – cut off the excess
  3. Pipe some eyes, a mouth and buttons onto the snowman using the black icing
  4. Pipe a little triangle with the orange icing for the nose and your done!

 

Strawberry Santa

A fun way to eat strawberries! All you need is:

  • 1 cup of thickened cream
  • ¼ cup of Icing Sugar
  • 2 punnets of strawberries
  • Raisins or Liquorice  
  • Piping bag and fluted nozzle

 

 

  1. Mix the thickened cream and icing sugar together until it is a firm texture
  2. Slice the stem off of the strawberries and sit them upside down on a paper towel
  3. Cut the tip of the strawberries off and sit them to the side (don’t throw these away!)
  4. Fill the piping bag with the cream and icing sugar mixture and pipe some cream onto the top strawberries – this will be the face of the Santas.
  5. Pipe a little bit of cream halfway down the strawberry and join this to the cream at the top to create a beard
  6. Put the tip of the strawberry, that you cut off earlier, on top of the cream and pipe a bobble on top for the hat
  7. Lastly cut a raisin into quarters (or some soft liquorice) and stick them on the cream as the eyes!
