Snowflake goodies

Some weeks back I read this idea. And it sounded fun and perfect for my little ones. We took flour tortillas, folded them in quarters and cut them into snowflakes, just like you do with paper.

Then we fried them in hot oil until golden and crispy - sort of like a sopapilla, but not as bubbly.
And as they drained on paper towels, we sprinkled them generously with powdered sugar. Now they are beautiful white snowflakes and a perfect match for hot chocolate (make mine with some Bailey's Irish Cream please!)
Then we snuggle up and read another chapter of A Christmas Carol (you know it only has 5 chapters so you can start it on the 21st and finish reading it to your kiddies on Christmas day. Be sure to use appropriate voices for all the characters!)
