Christmas time is all about togetherness and celebration – and what better way to bring people together than with delicious treats that warm the cockles of your heart? This is the one time of the year when the sumptuous aromas of cakes, cookies, pies and bakes suffuse the house, spreading cheer and happiness.
At IKEA, we love celebrating with friends and family, and we know how important food is to a happy life. So, this Christmas, try out these simple and easy treats that you and your whole family can make together and enjoy!
This is a fun and simple take on a pizza that your kids can get involved in making, and they’re sure to love eating it too. Take 2 different sizes of pizza base, some olives, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and a carrot sliver. In a large baking dish, place the smaller pizza base above the larger one to create the body and head.
Spread sauce on both and sprinkle cheese generously. Use olives for the eyes and the sliver of carrot for the mouth. Add olives for buttons on larger pizza. Pop it in the oven and your Snowman Pizza is ready to go!
These festive treats are delicious and picture perfect! Get the following ingredients together – 4 cups of plain cornflakes, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, 50 grams of butter, some red M&Ms or any other red spherical candy, 30-40 large marshmallows and 1-2 teaspoons of green food colouring.
Melt marshmallows, butter, and vanilla extract together in a large pan over low heat till smooth. Add food colouring and take the mixture off the heat. Stir in the cornflakes gently, bit by bit so every cornflake is covered in the mixture. Line a serving tray with baking paper. Drop a tablespoon of the mixture on the tray, shape it into a mistletoe and decorate with 2-3 red candies per treat. Refrigerate them until they have set. Your delicious Christmas treats are ready.
Charming and tasty, these treats revamp a classic brownie into something more festive. You’ll need some store-bought or home-baked brownies, strawberries and whipped cream.
Place the brownies on a plate and use cookie cutters to cut shapes out of them. Place 1 de-leafed strawberry, head down, on top of each shape. Spray a circle of cream around the base of the strawberry. Your batch of Santa’s brownies is ready! The team at IKEA hopes you try out these super-easy recipes and have an amazing and delicious Christmas with your family!
