Wordless Wednesday – Preschool Holiday Snack

Remember all the fun I had at Halloween with Johnny’s birthday? And when I baked all this?

Gavin was all about them! He insisted the next time he had snack I would make them for him. Problem? Halloween was over. I knew he had a holiday party going up so I asked Wilton if I could do the Gingerbread Boys and Trees Non-Stick Mini Pan. I knew immediately that the mini cake pans were perfect for rice krispie treats! See:

I should have used regular frosting instead of the sparkle gels. I just love using them but because its a gel it seeps into the gaps the rice krispies have. Frosting sits on top.

The trees were fun. I thought of it too late but I wish I had M&M’s to decorate the trees with or cute sprinkles.

Are you having fun baking too? I have been posting some recipes so check out the recipe tab!

    Ok, you are allowed to make snacks for your school? We are in a podunk town where everyone pretty much knows each other and we HAVE to bring in an unwrapped snack from the store. No homemade goods, ever. You did a great job again. The other moms must be green with envy!

    • Jennifer says

      Yes, but we can’t bring anything in with nuts. It’s a nut-free school.

  2. Stefany T says

    No baking here… but those are super cute!

  3. I need to spend more time baking, because that looks like fun!

  4. Tutus and Tantrumns says

    Sooo cute! I made some halloween ones but they didnt turn out nearly as good!

  5. Emilie says

    Yum. Love Rice Krispie Bars. And yes, I wish I could bring homemade snacks to school too! πŸ™

  6. Candace says

    I haven’t baked a single thing yet. Probably won’t unless making puppy chow counts. I am tired of fighting for space to roll out cookies with other people around me LOL.

    I love the treats though you did wonderful on them!

  7. Those look yummy and professionally made. Same here as the other commenters, only store bought items for school.

  8. Tammi says

    Those look great!
    I have shyed away from a ton of baking this year…then I don’t eat it!

  9. Jessica says

    very cute, we cant bring anything unless its store bought!

  10. Amy says

    The no homemade snacks makes holiday parties and birthdays just not so much fun. I love your rice krispie treats- my girls were asking for them just today. I might have to make them for them.

  13. Sara@MommaFindings says

    I’m so jealous. Our gingerbread men looked nothing like that. Our Christmas trees? Deformed. But we had a lot of fun making them. Yours look great! Merry Christmas from my family to yours!

  14. I’m sorry to hear about you getting laid off. What a bummer. Your boss must be a real hum – bugger! Thanks for the linky my friend. If I hear of anything cool to enter I’ll let you know.
