Okay, so I have a teeny, tiny confession. Sometimes, I imagine myself as a fancy homemaker in the image of Martha Stewart and attempt to re-create her elaborate desserts/projects/designs/etc. Most attempts, sadly, end up worthy of the #pinterestfail label, but sometimes I get it right! The secret, I’ve found, when you’re less-than-crafty, is to choose projects that allow for some creative, ahem, “freedom.”

If you’re anything like me, you probably get bit by the “Martha” bug around birthdays and especially the holidays and perhaps make a few attempts that elicit tears and curses, require band-aids (and the cure-all..wine), and ultimately a trip to Target or a visit to Etsy. Well, have no fear!

I declare this holiday season is going to be a Pinterest success!

To create some homemade goodness and lower your cortisol levels, Nina and I share some super easy, Pinterest-challenged, friendly holiday treats for kids that will impress your family and friends.

Go ahead and click play, check out the holiday treats for kids recipes below, try them out, and have fun! Happy holiday-memory-making, friends!

Holiday S’mores on a Stick


  • Author: Lanie Towsley

Ingredients

  • Marshmallows (regular size or the JUMBO campfire roasters)
  • Melting chocolate (Wilton’s is a great brand, but you can use any chocolate)
  • Graham crackers or graham cracker crumbs
  • Peppermint candy
  • Optional add-ons: mini M&M’s, crushed nuts, caramel sauce, sprinkles
  • Tools: mini-torch or gas stove, plates for dipping, bowl for chocolate, foil, pan, cake-pop sticks

Instructions

  1. “Roast” your marshmallows with either the mini-torch (yes, we have one that a friend gave us as a wedding gift. Apparently, he thought we made a lot of creme brûlée..) or over the stove.
  2. Melt chocolate in a double-boiler or microwave-safe bowl. (For 60 seconds, then stir and melt again at 30-second intervals until creamy.)
  3. Dip marshmallows in chocolate.
  4. Sprinkle on graham crackers, then all the add-ons!
  5. Place on foil and in the freezer to set

Notes

You can display these on a serving dish at a party, or wrap them up in cellophane and give them as a gift!

Option: Make snowmen on a stick by placing three regular-sized marshmallows on the stick, dipping all, and then decorating to look like snowmen!
