A few days ago I shared a delicious Christmas Cookies recipe and D.I.Y gift ideas that make perfect Christmas gifts for teachers, neighbours, etc. Together with McCormick we are getting festive and sharing another gift idea and recipe along with a fantastic giveaway for All Mum Said fans. This one is perfect for not only adults but the kids too.
My kids love getting involved with cooking and we encourage them to try new things, invent flavours by mixing and matching herbs/spices and food. The kitchen is a place for creativity and vision. Which is why the idea below from McCormick is perfect!
Santa’s Festive Fairy Dust
This is a wonderful idea for the kids to get involved and get creative. They can create their very own magical fairy dust for Santa’s Christmas Cookies or make some fairy dust for their teachers. Simply add a teaspoon of four of your favourite spices into the bag, then follow this recipe. If making these as gifts just add a tag with the recipe on the back.
