Just a few days left till Christmas kids so you are officially allowed to lick the batter bowl and sprinkle glitter ( or pixie dust as I call it ) all over the house. Let the magic fill the air and make sure you leave some good snacks out for Santa.
Speaking of which, this the reason I popped on the blog today to recreate a super fun, easy and festive Christmas Tree Cheese Platter recipe from Kraft. Because you’ll love snacking on this while wrapping gifts and making sparkly bows covered in glitter, I mean magical pixie dust.
Seedless grapes and a mix of different cheese will give you the fuel you need to get the job done today. And if you are expecting really nice guests, you might even want to make one of these cheese platters for them. Or maybe leave one out for Santa, he could sure use a good snack for the road. I bet kids would also be all over a treat platter like this one. I know because I ate half of it just assembling it and taking photos. Yummy !
Honestly tough, what a pretty centerpiece to set on the table early Christmas morning and keep the cravings under control while everyone opens their presents.
