Build a Christmas tree right in your own kitchen. All you need are some juicy kiwis and strawberries. Peel the kiwis and slice them up before assembling and stacking them into the shape of a Christmas tree. Use the kiwi skin as the base of the tree and sprinkle small strawberry chunks to add a pop of colour.

We had so much fun creating this because it required so little effort and the kids were squealing in excitement when the tree started to form! Because it turned out so pretty, the kids couldn’t wait to get their daily dose of vitamins by reaching out for all the kiwis and strawberries.

For all the moms out there, you should definitely try this at home!

Reindeer Cupcakes

These reindeer cupcakes will really get you in the festive mood!

Bake a batch of chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting and you’re all set to decorate. Pretzels make the perfect antlers and button-shaped chocolate candy (i.e. M&Ms) is best used for the nose. To complete the look, use edible googly eyes, which you can find easily at the baking section in most supermarkets and stores. If you can’t find those, fret not! Simply cut a small marshmallow into half and place a mini chocolate chip on each marshmallow and you’re all set!

What we really loved about this recipe is how you could customize each face to get all sorts of funny expressions! Let the kids go crazy choosing different colored noses and stealing bites from pretzels to make the antlers. Such a joy to see them laughing and smiling away while having fun at it!

Serve these cute desserts at your Christmas party and trust us, they’ll be gone in seconds!
