Wreath-Shaped Snacks That Will Make Any Get-Together More Merry
Spread some holiday cheer with one of these festive recipes.
Sturdy evergreens trimmed with garland and lights, playlists packed with your favorite carols and glasses of sweet, spiked eggnog: Is there anything better than holiday party season?
Aside from the joy of spending time with family and friends, most of us look forward to this season’s get-togethers because of the snacks. (So. Many. Snacks.) This is the time of year when we treat ourselves to our favorites — and reinvent them in fun, festive ways.
Not sure you can create a gigantic standing snowman made of cupcakes or an elaborate Santa bread pastry (complete with his signature hat and beard)? Try making a wreath. This simple shape is perfect for decorators of any skill level — and full of holiday cheer!
Bundled branches of holly and pine are nice but when it comes to wreaths, one that gets its’ bright green color from fresh herbs (sprinkled over creamy cheese) is better!
Like wintry mounds of fluffy, fallen snow this meringue wreath is sure to get you in the holiday spirit. For a light, airy texture, add the sugar into the mixing bowl slowly, in several batches. This helps the sugar dissolve — and won’t deflate your whipped egg whites.
Who needs presents to unwrap when you can tear into this sweet, swirled masterpiece? You’ll be surprised how easy it is to create the pull-apart design. Instead of slicing your log of rolled dough into individual discs, connect the two ends and cut slits (one inch apart) all around the ring. Then, simply fan the pieces out to form a wreath.
There’s only one way to decorate a wreath filled with pepperoni, cheese and Italian sausage: fresh basil leaves and a pizza dough bow!
Here’s an easy way to add more red and green to your Yuletide spread: gather green beans, broccoli and shishito peppers into a wreath-like ring and decorate with clusters of grape tomatoes. Serve alongside onion dip for a tasty holiday appetizer.
You've been on the nice list all year so treat yourself to the admiration of everyone at your holiday get-together. Just make this show-stopping chocolate fudge wreath.
