Muffin Tin Monday

Muffin Tin Monday blog can be found here

I have participated in Muffin Tin Monday's once before and had a blast. I just had forgot all about it. I "liked" the page on fb and saw that today was "Holiday" theme. There were already some great ideas posted and that got me thinking.
I was planning meatballs and rice anyways and after that, it was easy.
I put 3 meatballs together to make "snowmen" but ended up making better snowmen for dessert.

Meatballs (which I joked with my daughter was Reindeer poop), Rice=snow, Sliced carrots=Snowmen noses, Beans=Evergreen boughs.
I then cut up a waffle to try to make it look like a Christmas tree (I tried, it kinda worked)--completed with a star on top.

The best was dessert
A marshmallow snowman with pretzels for arms, chocolate sprinkles for eyes, small piece of carrot for a nose, a black gumpdrop cut up for the hat and held together with a thin piece of spaghetti inside!

The snowman was laid on top of some "Christmas lights"--cut up chocolate marshmallow square.

It was fun, Princess loved it and is begging me to do it again next week.

What a cute tin. I love the little snowmen. I was wondering what was holding it together; how ingenious. Your tree is so cute. I think you are so creative, glad you remembered about muffin tin monday.
