Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Tip: Serve cookies from little holiday pots to make them even more tempting! Cut pieces of floral foam (available at craft stores) to fit snugly inside flowerpots to within 1/2 inch (1cm) of tops. Glue or tape foam pieces securely in pots. Carefully poke bottoms of sticks into foam. Cover foam with shredded coconut to look like snow.
