+ This Christmas Snowball Fight Edible Centerpieces post brought to you by Hostess #HostessHoliday +
Who’s up for a SNOWBALL FIGHT?!
I’m talking the tastiest snowball fight around….
We’re starting a new tradition here in the WhipperBerry house, we are going to have indoor, scrumptious snowball fights each Christmas.
As a kid I LOVED the snow, I still do, I just don’t love the cold very much.
I have magical Christmas memories of playing out in the snow for hours, building snow caves out of the drifts along our house. Snuggling in to making scores of snowballs in my cave, getting ready for the battle to come. The battle was never as epic as I had planned for, but I was prepared for darn sure!
This year I’m preparing in a much sweeter & easier way…
How fun is this edible centerpiece that you can simply create with some Hostess Sno Balls®, some peppermint bark and a fun banner?!
We run around like crazy during the Holidays,working tirelessly to create magical memories for our families and friends. Why not let Hostess do a little heavy lifting?!

Christmas Snowball Fight Edible Centerpieces
This is the easiest centerpiece you’ll ever make, not to mention the fact… Your kiddos will LOVE it, it’s magical and white so it will match any decor! I went to Walmart and stocked up on four boxes of Hostess Sno Balls®. That’s 24 Sno Balls® to make your epic fight!
First, on a cake plate, layer some peppermint bark. This step is optional, if you can’t find peppermint bark you can leave this step out.
Next, pile your Sno Balls® as high as they will go.
If you have a fun little red truck, you can add that in if you would like for a pop of whimsy and color. I found my truck at Target.
Now, all you have to do is make your Christmas Snowball Fight 2014 banner.
All you have to do is print them from your computer…
and cut them on your Silhouette cutting machine…
Once you cut them out…
bend them along the perforated lines and that is how you get that fun 3D effect.
Using some glue dots, glue them onto some bamboo skewers that you can find in the kitchen section at the market. I dipped the top of my skewers in plain old glue and added some gold glitter first. I also added some glitter to the edge of a couple of the banners.
The tassels are made out of gold baker’s twine. They are simple to make…
Wrap some of the twine around three fingers about 8 times.
Using another piece of twine roughly 6 inches long. Tie the top of the wrapped twine.
Then using another small piece of twine roughly 4 inches long, tie around the top of the tassel.
Then trim the bottom of the tassel and voilà, you have a simple tassel to add to your banners!
How fun is that edible centerpiece?! It really takes minutes to make and it adds a fun, whimsical flair to your holiday table.
