Muffin Tin Monday- Sweet & Swirly Oh...and my "homemade" Poptarts:P

Today's muffin tin was one of my more time consuming ventures, however it still only took about 10 mins start to finish. And the kids were ecstatic with the results, and that is the real goal:)
The tins today were based on Peppermints & Candy Canes:
 The tins contain a Juice Pouch, Turkey Tortilla Pinwheels, Jello Cup, Candy Cane shaped Apples, Babybel cheese with a CandyCane Cutout, and Vanilla Yogurt with a red swirl with a big fat Peppermint Marshmallow!




I dyed the cream cheese in the pinwheels, and used a small cookie cutter on the apples & cheese. Hooking this Tin up at Muffin Tin Mom

I also attempted homemade Poptarts this morning. I am going to be honest and say they were rather dissapointing. If you LOVE the flavor of pie crust all by itself these are the pastry for you! However I thought they were rather bland, so if you have any ideas on how to "spice" these babies up let me know. All I did was take a premade piecrust & cut it into circles with my biscuit cutter. Then I dolloped a tsp of jelly in the middle ( I didn't want to put more in so it wouldn't ooze out!). I topped the circle with another pastry circle, and then sealed the edges with a fork. I used an egg wash on the top to add sugar sprinkles for texture and looks. They looked nice & yummy...but not so much:/

I have seen other recipes for homemade poptarts, maybe I will try to hunt one up and send it you. They still look tasty. I love the candy cane theme- I was a little nervous about the red in the sandwiches until you said you dyed the cream cheese! So tricky.:) Also, jealous of your closets, as always.

Love the red and white meal. So festive. The turkey tortilla pinwheels sound yummy. And the homemade poptarts look good, sorry they didn't turn out so tasty. Now I am tempted to look up a recipe and try it out myself.

Your meal is so pretty! I love all the red and white. The pop tarts really do look pretty.

So, do you shop in advance for your Monday meals? Because I probably wouldn't just have all that stuff on hand.

I bet if you drizzled the pop tarts with some frosting (just powdered sugar and a little milk) it would really give them some flavor :) OR....cream cheese frosting!
