Sure there are all sorts of edible flowers but have you actually eaten them? I have, they taste like, well, like flowers. Wouldn't you rather eat something that looked like a flower but tasted sweet? Of course you would.
I know these are simple cookies with peppermint Hershey's Kisses on them but I just couldn't resist posting them, they're so cute! I'm getting into some serious holiday spirit already, a record early cheer from me. I certainly wouldn't turn down a box of these babies!

It's hard to bring something to a BBQ that people will like that's still simple and quick to throw together. Throwing a few bits to fruit onto a stick is pretty much as simple as it can get. And who doesn't like a rainbow! You can dress up that boring buffet table covered in potato salad and baked beans!
