With Christmas just a few days away, I decided to show some holiday treats I have recently shared with my staff.
For our December Saturday clinic, the staff enjoyed an eatable village that included:
Pound cake houses (each staff member could have their own house):
- Pound Cake (recipe found here)
- Cookie glazing frosting (recipe found here)
- Mini M&Ms, chocolate chips, colored sugar, almond slivers, Andes candies, lemon wafers, green frosting, and sugar flakes.
Spritz cookie Trees (recipe found here, peppermint extract used instead of fiori di sicilia)
Marshmallow cereal trees (recipe found here, shaped into trees rather than wreaths)
Cream wafer cookies (recipe found here) – these are really good!!
Meat and Cheese Tree
On another day, a demonstration of a new piece of equipment we are considering, was held over our lunch break. So, I brought in some meat and cheese for the staff to eat. Keeping with the holiday spirit, these were put together in a decorative fashion.
After seeing the idea in an ADA Morning Huddle email, I also made a tray of fun fruit treats. These Grinch Poppers (original idea posted here) were enjoyed by everyone.
Merry Christmas to everyone who reads my blog!!
