Hors Dourves

Holiday greetings,

This morning I received the cutest little hors' dourve. (Spelling) Too cute to eat! It was half of an oreo cookie (choc base & frosting), on top of that was an edible mousie made of a hershey choc kiss on it's side for the head and pointy nose and a choc covered marashino cherry with the stem/tail for the body. And the cutest little almond slivered ears. Eyes were added with red gel.

Years ago I was at a kid's birthday party and the hostess had made "hamburger" hors' dourves by using Nilla wafers as the bun, shredded coconut with green food coloring as lettuce and I can't remember what else. I think there was a choc covered mint patty for the burger. Has anyone ever made these burgers or any other cute novelty party foods that would be fun for kids to create?

We've made the "hamburgers." We used Nilla Wafers, plain chocolate cookies as the meat, green colored coconut as the lettuce, and red and yellow frosting as the mustard and ketchup. My daughters LOVE making these! We'll have to try the mousies now - they sound cute!

Four our sunday school party, my pastor made pretzels with slightly melted hershey hugs and topped them with reeses pieces or m&m's. Yummy. You put them in the oven for just enough time to melt the chocolate.

Our foster children loved to make "stained glass cookies"..simple sugar cookie recipe, but when you place the cookies on the cookie sheet, you make a hole in the middle of each and drop in three peppermint candies....when the cookies bake, the candy melts and forms a lovely middle that light shines through..real fancy ones are made of lifesavers!!!!!! YUMMMMMMM.

A woman yesterday was telling me about 2 different christmas food ideas.

Rudolph sandwiches: Spread peanut butter on wheat bread, Slice diagonally. Place pretzels at the corners for horns, rasins for eyes, and a cherry for the nose on the 3rd point.

Elf pudding: Use vanilla pudding, let kids add green or red food coloring. Top with whipped cream and a cherry.
