"John the Baptist teaches that the greatest joy for an apostle is to see that Christ increases while he or she decreases on behalf of Him." (Behold I Stand at the Door and Knock, pg. 107)
Coloring – Mysteries of the Rosary
Rose and her friend were given the challenge to create something edible that would correlate with St. John the Baptist. They were given the following supplies…….
These are their creations…
Their creations were fairly simple but they got their wheels turning. The girls searched for something chewy and found my stash of Red Vines. The girls cut the Red Vines into small chunks to represent locusts. They stuffed the locust-like licorice pieces with pretzel sticks to provide the crunch. Lastly, they dipped their concoction in chocolate to disguise the licorice-pretzel locusts.
Their locust creation was great in taste and looks.
I wish I wasn’t so rusty in my blogging skills and had the right-mind to take pictures. : )
I decided to enlist my littles. We created chocolate covered crickets for a family play date with parish families. We broke pretzel sticks up and dipped them in chocolate. I used the same technique as used when making Chinese New Year Cookies found here.
All the families present loved their special St. John the Baptist treats.
