 Kitchen Fun and Crafty Friday
It’s time for our Kitchen Fun and Crafty Friday link party!  We had such a hard time picking out features this week because everything was so amazing. We always love seeing your creations & thanks so much for sharing them!
First we would like to share with all of you our friend Norene’s new Sweet Treats for the Holidays book. One of our lucky readers will have chance to win one of these in the Rafflecopter box below!
Sweet Treats for the Holidays
Norene is one of my favorite fun food creators ever with the site Party Pinching. She makes the cutest treats & they are all easy to make. I was so excited when she announced that she was going to do a book. The best thing about Sweet Treats for the Holidays is that she takes store bought cookies and dolls them up to be absolutely adorable for holidays from Halloween through New Year’s. The kids can even help create these ideas. There are SO many cute ideas for kids holiday parties and class parties at school.
We share so many fun food ideas from others on our social media and I feel like I have seen them all!  The best thing about Norene is that she is original. The best ideas always come from people that are creative enough to come up with their own ideas and she is amazingly talented. I adore everything about this book from the ideas to the pictures & tips. You are going to love it as well!
These Hot Cocoa Cups are one of our favorite creations from the book & we have included the recipe!
Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Cookies

Martha approved. I’m not even kidding.
It’s kind of surreal when Martha Stewart actually says what you made is “adorable”. My hot cocoa marshmallow mug cookies won her over and believe me, it is “a good thing.”
Approximately ¼ cup of white candy coating
4 mini candy canes
4 large marshmallows
1 (16-oz.) can chocolate frosting
12 Jet-Puffed mallow bits
1 (7-oz.) pouch store-bought white cookie icing
4 store-bought tea cookies
40 small tree sprinkles
4 large tree sprinkles
1. Melt candy coating in small microwave-safe bowl according to package instructions.
2. Cut candy cane at the curve. Dip ends into melted candy coating and push into side of marshmallow. Hold in place until it hardens and is secure.
3. Using a small knife spread a small amount of chocolate frosting on top of marshmallow leaving a small rim. Top with 3 mallow bits.
4. Frost cookie with white icing. Place marshmallow in the middle of cookie.
5. Place 10 small tree sprinkles around the perimeter of cookie.
6. Attach large tree sprinkle to front of marshmallow using candy coating.
