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.


3 cups orange juice, chilled
Grenadine syrup


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

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


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

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

Dust with powdered sugar.

Makes 6 trees
