CUB GRUB - Fun Food

Snowman Soup

1 package hot chocolate mix
3 Hershey Kisses
15 (or so) marshmallows
1 candy cane
"Put items in colored plastic wrap"

The Poem: Put on paper and give with items in a mug

Was told you've been real good this year

Always glad to hear it

With freezing weather drawing near

You'll need to warm the spirit

So here's a little Snowman Soup

Complete with stirring stick

Add hot water, sip it slow

It's sure to do the trick!



Hot Spiced Cider


1 quart cider

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 Tablespoon whole cloves

1 small cinnamon stick

1/8 teaspoon salt


Put spices in large non-aluminum kettle with cider and sugar. Take out the spices before serving.  Mix together and simmer 20 to 30 minutes.  Serve hot.


Red-Nosed Reindeer Sandwiches
Trapper Trails Council

2 slices whole wheat bread

peanut butter

strawberry jam

12 pretzel sticks

4 raisins

2 cherry halves, drained

Spread the peanut butter on one side of a slice of bread.  Spread the jam on the other slice of bread.  Put the slices of bread together to make a sandwich.  Cut the sandwich in half diagonally.  Create two reindeer sandwiches using raisins for eyes. Pretzels for antlers and the cherry halves for the nose.


Chocolate Christmas Logs
Trapper Trails Council

2 tablespoons butter/margarine, softened

½ cup light corn syrup

2 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted

1-teaspoon vanilla

¾ cup powdered milk

3 cups powdered sugar

In a medium bowl, mix the first four ingredients together.  In a small bowl., stir the milk and sugar together.  With clean hands, knead it into the chocolate mixture until well blended and smooth.  Roll the mixture into four long logs.  Cut each log into several short ones.  To store, wrap in waxed paper and place in the refrigerator




6 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups butter

1 large can evaporated milk

2 packages chocolate chips (personal favorite—milk chocolate chips)

1 jar marshmallow cream

1 cup nuts

Cook in heavy pan until boiling, boil 10 minutes, stirring all the time.  Take off burner and add chips, marshmallow cream and nuts, make sure you mix well, pour into 9 x 13 buttered pan.  It will make 6 pounds.
