Fun and easy recipe to make with the kids! These Christmas Tree Cones are sure to bring the cheer to your holiday festivities.
1. Begin by spraying the cones with green edible spray dye to totally cover them. Before you do this, make sure that you fully cover your work surface with wax paper. Let cones dry on the wax paper.
2. Next make your favorite cupcake batter (you can use a box mix or your favorite recipe that makes approximately 24 cupcakes). Drop a nut down into the cone to stop the batter from dripping out of the tip. Then fill your cones about 3/4 of the way full with the cupcake batter. Now you’ll have to make this little contraption in order to ensure that your cones stay upright while they bake them. You’ll need to buy some disposable cupcake pans. Snip holes in the bottom of each cupcake slot. Make the hole large enough so that the cones sit about half way down into the pan making sure they are secure and won’t flop over. * Check out the related link to my blog to see step by step photos of this process.
3. You’ll bake the cupcake cones at the temperature and time that your cupcake recipe recommends. You can check to see if they are done by inserting a toothpick into the middle and making sure the pick comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool. Once cool, trim down the part of the cupcake that bubbled past the top of the cone. That way, the cone will sit flat on the serving plate.
4. Now it’s time to decorate!! You can make your own frosting or you can use store bought. Put it in a piping bag and pipe some garland on your tree (see photo). Add a candy star for the top and add red hots and sugar pearls for ornaments. You can use any type of candy for decoration, you can be as creative as you want! After you admire your work, you can eat them which is the best part!!
Epiphany is celebrated on January 6, and commemorates the Magi’s visit to the Christ Child. Growing up, our church would celebrate with Epiphany Cakes, which were filled with trinkets signifying different things. A fun way to celebrate the twelve day of Christmas with your kids! (Note: Be careful with small objects; make sure kids know they’re in the cake.)
These would be the perfect cookies to make with kids on Christmas eve to set out for Santa! Not only are they cute and fun, but they’re absolutely delicious. A soft and chewy sugar cookie base with cream cheese frosting, white chocolate, chocolate chips, marshmallows and sprinkles!
The main thing to remember about peppernuts is that they are tiny, about a third to a half inch, no larger. Peppernuts are a tradition in many German families. They came to our area with the Mennonite immigration in the 1870′s. Imagine generations of people grabbing a handful or two of peppernuts and munching away and you have a tradition worth continuing.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!

In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
