Down the Chimney Cookie Platter!

Christmas is coming so I'm going to help you get ready....with the cutest cookie platter you ever did see.  I had this in my mind, sketched it out and got to work.  Lo and behold, it turned out just as I had imagined!  I'm pretty sure you're going to love it.
I took photos along the way and made printable templates for you to use.  You know, I'm starting early, giving you stuff.

Feather Rice Krispie Treats!

With one day before Thanksgiving, I wanted to make something simple.  And to me simple always begins with a Rice Krispie Treat.  The treats were made, cut into bars and then nothing.  Nothing came to me, all I could see were Rice Krispie Bars. 
When that happens, I realize it's time for a break, which means go the computer and see what's going on.  Within one minute on Facebook, I saw a cute little photo of two kiddos, each wearing a feather in a headband, titled "Thanksgiving Feast"!  Immediately I knew what to do with the RKT.

Pumpkin Spice Cake!

YIKES!  Why didn't someone remind me Thanksgiving is almost here?  Like in four days almost here.  Thankfully I'm not doing the cooking, just the baking.  I won't even tell you about the time I made a turkey, you can only imagine.
Anyway, this is what I baked, a Pumpkin Spice Cake.  I love this cake, but haven't made it for a long long time.  I decided it was time to bring back the spice!

A Very Merry Party Table!

Could it be I'm the only one hosting a Very Merry Christmas Disney themed dinner?  I'm hoping you're planning a Christmas Dinner, because each and everything I created for the Disney themed Christmas party could be switched from mouse ears to ornaments!
And it wouldn't be a party without a party table, right?  I wanted to make the dinner table fun and exciting without going out and buying a bunch of stuff.  And that's just what I did.

Disney Themed Christmas Candy!

Hey there, Hi there Ho there, I'm as happy as can be...
I've made Peppermint Bark so cute, I can't wait for you to see!

What's great about this?  You can make the peppermint bark in any shape for any occasion.
And I won't try any more poetry.

And if you keep scrolling, I'll show you how I made the Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Bark too.

Chocolate Gingerbread Mickey!

After making the Disney Themed Christmas Cookies, I just couldn't stop.  Maybe you don't have the time to make the Disney themed  sugar cookies?  Don't worry, with Mickey Mouse cutters and molds in hand, I put them all to good use.
Taking one of my favorite Christmas combinations, Chocolate & Gingerbread, I made Mickey cookies with chocolate Ears!  Now that's the kind of ear I'd like to nibble on.

Disney Themed Christmas Cookies!

This is how it all started, making cookies as take home treats for any party I hosted.

Now I can't host anything without having a themed cookie along with several other take home sweets.  Of all the Disney desserts I made for my sister and her family, these were my favorite and I couldn't wait to share.

A Very Merry Christmas Party!

I didn't think I would be having a Disney Party quite so soon.  But what do you do when your sister is taking her son and his family to Disney World for the Very Merry Christmas Party?  And I happen to live right on their way to the airport?
Have a Very Merry Christmas dinner of course!  Even though it's going to be a quick stop for a bite to eat, I wanted it to be special.  Disney special, starting with the DIY Invitation.

Marquee Brownie!

I'm not sure how, or even why this idea came to mind.  Maybe it's because everywhere I look I see some kind of marquee letter or sign in lights.  So I guess it's only normal to turn it into a brownie, right?  Well, my normal.  And it's the perfect way to direct guests to the party!

Buttercream Thanksgiving!

For me, getting ready for the Holidays always include cookies.  Lots of cookies.  Lately, I have been on a royal icing kick and love the look.  However, as much as I try to persuade my cookie customers into letting me make their cookies with royal icing, most are persistent saying they want buttercream.  Because I aim to please, buttercream it is!
I just decided to change it up a bit.  Instead of piping all the cookies with buttercream, I decided to go back to my roots and spread the buttercream on the cookie. Only because I didn't want it to be super smooth, it went much faster.
