Rudolph Christmas Edible Art

 

After having so much fun with our Christmas Edible Art: Snowman Sandwich my son and I decided to do a round two of the edible art projects for lunch.  Playing with food is not always a bad thing and in this case, it is the perfect way to turn your winter mealtimes into a fun art project {especially when indoor projects to keep your kiddos busy are sorely needed!}.

This time around we made Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer pulling a sleigh full of toys.  I originally used cheese for the toys but my son discovered that the pear apple he was eating could be cut into fun shapes: Mommy, I made an apple “candy cane!”  I liked his idea and the “apple” toys ended up being sturdier than when made out of cheese.  But you can use either one.

I’m sure if we had played with it more we could have made the scene more detailed and elaborate but the point was to serve a quick, simple lunch with basic ingredients that we typically have on hand.  Our reindeer was a turkey, cheese & avocado melt and we had a PB&J sleigh but you could use the sandwiches and cookie cutter shapes of your choice.
