This post about Holiday Hacks and Mozzarella Wreath Sticks brought to you by Farm Rich. The content and opinions expressed below are that of close to home.
The last couple of weeks I have been sharing a lot of holiday entertaining tips. Most of these have been for tips on how to entertain and not feel overwhelmed. Through out the year I also share a lot of recipes that are semi-homemade which gives you the appeal of a homemade dish with the convenience of something store bought. There is nothing wrong with this approach especially if you are entertaining and you want to actually enjoy your guests. For an upcoming party for my daughter’s class, I decided to play around with some frozen snacks, the Farm Rich Mozzarella sticks and create a festive platter.
Most kids love Mozzarella sticks and it is a great snack to fight off all the cookies and candy available around holiday time. Farm Rich Snacks are easy and convenient, made with 100% real cheese, are good sources of protein and calcium and have 0 trans fats!Instead of just putting them on a platter, I decided I would create a wreath with the Farm Rich Mozzarella sticks for a fun twist.
It could not be simpler than baking the sticks per the directions, I baked them but I know they would be amazing in a deep fryer. Then arrange them on a platter, I wish I had a bigger one on hand. I used 2 shot glasses and filled them with marinara sauce to resemble part of the bow.
For the rest of the bow, I had some roasted red peppers on hand and just strewn them on top. If you want to do a little more, add some greenery like parsley or olives on the wreath as well.
Be sure to serve warm as they are best that way, although most kids don’t care when it comes to quick snacks. Don’t think this little guy minds!
