Tortilla Snowflake Craft
Turn Mexican flat bread into munchable snowflakes! Arriba!
- Flour tortilla:Pick them up next time you're at the grocery store.
- Scissors:Make sure they're nice and clean and don't have glue on them from your child's last arts and craft project, or invest in an inexpensive pair of kitchen shears.
- Butter or margarine
- Toppings:Cinnamon, paprika, brown sugar, parmesan cheese, sprinkles, and so on. Go nuts. Heck you can even use nuts!
- Toaster oven:And some aluminum foil if you load on the cheese.
- Fold a flour tortilla in half. And then in half again. And, if you're inspired, in half again!
- Using the scissors, help the kids make little cutouts in the tortilla as if you were making a paper snowflake.
- When your child is satisfied with the cuts, unfold the tortilla to reveal the snowflake design.
- Smear on some butter or margarine to make the tortilla sticky and have the kids sprinkle on a variety of yummy toppings. Brown sugar and cinnamon make a delish combo. Or try honey and paprika for a little sugar and spice!
- Stick them in toaster for a few minutes, then serve 'em up hot.
- Have everyone in the family make one. The kids will marvel at how different each one looks and how great each one tastes. Remember, every tortilla snowflake is completely unique!
