A Cowboy Christmas by Shanna Hatfield - Deck the Halls with Books Holiday Extravaganza



Ombré Punch


When you need a beverage you can serve to all ages that will bring a little “Wow!” to your table, try this easy to make punch. The trick is to not stir it!

We like it best with orange juice as the base, but you can also use grapefruit juice for a different flavor.

Makes Six Servings.

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups orange juice, chilled
Grenadine syrup
Ice

DIRECTIONS:

Place ice in the bottom of the glasses. Add ½ cup of juice to each glass then carefully pour one teaspoon of grenadine syrup in each glass. That’s it! Told you it was easy. Just make sure you do not stir the drink or it will lose the lovely ombré design.

If you prefer grapefruit juice to orange juice, substitute it and add a splash of Sprite or 7-Up to each glass before you add the grenadine syrup.



Chocolate Chex Trees



These yummy and adorable trees are so simple to make and a great project if you have kids at home who need something to do. Set them on a disposable plate, foil-wrapped piece of cardboard, or a large sugar cookie wrapped in cellophane for gift-giving!

Ingredients:
3 cups Chex Chocolate cereal
6 pretzel sticks (the thick kind, made for dipping)
½ cup peanut butter
¼ cup Nutella
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

Mix the peanut but­ter, Nutella, but­ter, and pow­dered sugar in a bowl.

On whatever you plan to use for a base, mold the peanut butter mixture around the pretzel stick until it stands upright and forms a slight cone shape.

Hold it steady by using the tip of the pret­zel as a han­dle and begin insert­ing pieces of cereal into the peanut but­ter mix­ture in a sym­met­ri­cal pat­tern around the stick.
You can tip the cereal pieces up or down, depending on your personal preference.

Add more cereal pieces, stag­ger­ing them as you move upward, until you get near the top.

For the top of the tree, use broken pieces or cut them in half to get the smaller scale of branches near the top.

Use two pieces of cereal back to back to form the top.

Dust with powdered sugar.

Makes 6 trees
