Muffin Tin Monday: Dreaming of a White Christmas

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

This is the third week of Christmas themed muffin tins.  I decided to use the following theme:
"I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" (Though I am really not, as I would like to go visit my mom and I really don't relish driving in the snow.)  

We had
Cheese quesadillas  on white flour tortillas
Ranch dressing
Banana yogurt (plain yogurt mixed with baby food bananas)
Mini marshmallows
Rice Krispie treat from last night's Christmas program at church.

This was not a very well received muffin tin.  They had never had the cheese quesadillas before.  I used to make them all the time for the older children.  Just put the tortilla in the fry pan and sprinkle with cheese.  When the cheese is melted roll it up.  Yummy, however they only nibbled at those.  They ate the cauliflower after being nagged at.  Refused to touch the yogurt.  Must have had bad memories from last week when I gave them plain yogurt. Unfortunately, because they didn't eat, the Krispie treats which had been taken away were never given back.  They were told they could have them at dinner.  One thing that was offered that they devoured was...

The hot cocoa made from the hot cocoa mix we made today.  I found a recipe for homemade hot chocolate over at A Country Classroom and decided we would make it to give away as gifts.  I found some cute jars over at the thrift shop that I am going to use to give to friends at playgroup tomorrow.  Then I thought I would give it away to others in peanut butter jars or something.  

Here are the girls getting ready to make the hot cocoa mix:

We used:
1 quart of dry milk
16 oz Nestle Quik (actually we used store brand)
2 cups confectioners sugar
2 cups coffee creamer

This was a nice simple thing to make and it will make a nice gift.  You just need to take 1/3 cup of mix and add it to 2/3 cup hot water (I always boil ours).

Head on over to Muffin Tin Mom's blog to see what other cute tins others are giving their children.


  1. I would love a white Christmas! Your tin is wonderfully yummy.

  2. This is a much different recipe than the one I tried that was way too sweet. That one only had cocoa, sugar, and milk choco chips in it. This one sounds like it wouldn't be so sickeningly sweet. I'm going to give it a try. Thanks for posting it!
