If you’re like me summer 2012 holds a special place in your heart because the Olympics are in full swing! There is nothing like watching history being made and seeing the world’s best athletes perform at the peak of their game. If you enjoy the Olympics as much as I do you’ll want to share the spirit of the games with your family and friends. With these fun and creative ideas you can throw an affordable and entertaining party full of Olympic spirit! Check out these recipes and go for gold with some Olympic themed snacks! Here are three creative and tasty takes on party food you’ll love.
(1) Fruit Filled Olympic Rings
For the fruit filled Olympic rings you’ll need:
-Pieces of Pineapple
(Or any fruit of your liking really…)
For this simple snack you just cut your mini bagel in half, smear cream cheese on the halved mini bagel, and place pieces of the sliced fruit on their own respective bagel half! This snack is so simple everyone will love it!
(2) Edible Medals
For the Edible Medals you’ll need:
-Fruit by the Foot
All you have to do is split up the Oreo, place both ends of the Fruit by the Foot on the cream center, and put the Oreo back together! This treat doubles as a party favor too.
(3) Torch Cupcakes
For the torch cupcakes you’ll need:
-1 Package of dry cake mix
-40 Mini ice cream cones
-4 Cups of vanilla icing
-Orange food coloring
-Yellow food coloring
-Star-tipped pipping bag
Just follow the baking instructions on the boxed cake and instead of putting the batter into cupcake tins, pour it into the ice cream cones. As for the frosting you’ll want to go for the gold! Mix the vanilla frosting with orange and yellow food coloring. Be sure to take your time with this step because you’ll have to guess and check to get just the right hue! Then fill your pipping bag with the golden frosting and top your cupcakes to make a delicious torch! If you want to get even more creative you can design little flags to decorate your torches.
