Kidstir December 2016

Rating: Like It!!!
Cost: $15.95/month

My daughter loves to help cook, so as a Christmas gift we bought her a year subscription to Kidstir. I'm so excited to review a different subscription box. We also received a Kidstir binder with our subscription to keep all the recipes in that we receive throughout the year. Kidstir includes three recipes a month and a couple kitchen gadgets/utensils. They also include some fun activities each month.

The December box was Winter Wonderland Cookies. It included three cookie recipes that my daughter will be making for her pre-school teachers. There was a shopping list included, so you'll know what you need to have for each of the recipes. I like the shopping list, so I didn't have to look at each individual recipe to know what I needed. It's great to have it all in one place.

Here is a picture of the binder we received. It's really nice and has tabs for each category of recipes, so it'll be easy to keep them organized.

The first recipe included was Snowball Truffles. These look yummy and you can roll them in powdered sugar and anything else you'd like to decorate them with such as sprinkles, nuts, peppermint candy, etc. They're a no-bake cookie, so they should be really easy for my daughter to make. Kidstir also included Holiday Gift Tags to use if you are packaging the cookies up as gifts! I love this!

The second recipe included was Hot Cocoa Cookies. These are small cookies that can be put on the side of a mug of hot cocoa, which is such a cute idea. Kidstir also included Starry Night Cutters to use to cut these cookies into star shapes. There was even a recipe for Homemade Hot Cocoa included. We may have to add some cocoa to the cookie tray we make!

The Starry Night Cutters were used to cut out the star shapes. These were easy to use and my daughter loved rolling the dough and cutting out the stars!

The last recipe included was Snowflake Shortbread. I love shortbread cookies, so I am very excited to make these! These cookies had maple syrup in the recipe, which gave them a great flavor! Kidstir included Cookie Decorating Kit to decorate the shortbread cookies. And it's a silicon bag to put the icing in, so we can re-use it. I'm very happy about that. And the tips are plastic and colorful, so they'll be perfect for my daughter. There is also a recipe for Cookie Frosting. There is also instructions to make a snowglobe out of a small jar. 

The cookie decorating tools are the best! I love the plastic kid friendly tips and the silicon bag can be used over and over again. Plus they are real easy to use and easy to clean. Love this!

I love the December Kidstir kit. I think my daughter will really enjoy making the cookies and giving them away as gifts. We'll be making them this week! Update: I forgot to take pictures of the actual cookies, but they all looked nice. The snowflakes didn't come out as great as the pictures in the kit, but they were delicious! I can't wait to see what we get in the January kit!
