Muffin Tin Monday – Christmas (Week 1) December 6, 2010

When I saw that the theme for the next three weeks of Muffin Tin Monday would be Christmas (or Hanukkah for my many celebrating friends here on the North Shore), I got excited because the possibilities are endless.  Then I freaked a little, because the possibilities are endless.  I had a hard time focusing on a well put together tin.  So I turned to my Muffin Tin Mentor…Skylar.

.

I asked her “If Santa were to bring you food in a muffin tin, what would you ask for?”  I got a lot of great answers, and got busy putting it together.  I thought that since the question involved Santa giving food, I thought the tin should look accordingly.  And how does Santa give things away?  Wrapped up as gifts of course…

A few small pieces of double-sided tape helped make this tin into a fun paper-ripping meal.  Skylar squealed more and more with each compartment she opened.  It was a great prequel to Christmas morning.  The inside, using Skylar’s recommendations, looked like this:

Top Row (Left to Right): Mac and Cheese, Chicken Nuggets, Grasshopper Cookies

Bottom Row: Banana Slices, Peanut Butter “Ornament” Sandwich (with m&m embellishements), Corn

.

This tin was a big hit.  I’m not sure if it was the fun wrapping paper, or the favorite foods, but either way a good time was had by all.  If you would like to see more great Christmas themed muffin tin meals, check out Muffin Tin Mom’s Site.
