Grinchy Grapes Recipe

Green grapes
Mini marshmallows
Chocolate frosting

Take a toothpick and form a shish kabob in the following order: mini marshmallow, strawberry, sliced banana coin, then green grape. To make the grapes stand up straight on the plate, cut the bottom of the grape so it’s flat. (You may also need to trim the toothpick.) Then, fill a piping bag with chocolate frosting and carefully draw a face on the grape. Let the frosting dry for 10 minutes and serve! 

Reindeer Cupcakes Recipe

Your favorite box of cake mix (Follow box instructions!)
Chocolate frosting
Vanilla wafer cookies
Candy eyes
Red and brown chocolate candies

Bake cake in cupcake tin according to box instructions. Let cool and then frost. (Store-bought frosted cupcakes work well too!) Then, put on pretzels to form the antlers and the cookie to create a muzzle. Use chocolate frosting to attach eye candies and a chocolate piece for the nose. Use brown to create Santa’s reindeer and red candies to make a Rudolph!

Crispy Holiday Lights Recipe

1 1/2 tablespoons butter
2 cups miniature marshmallows
3 cups rice cereal
Food coloring
Red licorice vine

Over low heat melt butter, and stir in the marshmallows until it forms a smooth mixture. Take off the heat and split up the marshmallows into portions, and use food coloring to create different colored lights. If desired, keep one section colorless to use as the light fixtures. Pour the rice cereal into the different portions and stir until cereal is covered in the mixture. Cool so you can touch it, but cooling off too long will make the mixture difficult to work with. Use butter or cooking spray on your hands so the cereal mixture doesn't stick, and form into lightbulb shapes. Make a hole at the top for the licorice vine to string through. Let cool and enjoy!
