Instead of serving peppermints in a traditional manner as an after dinner palate cleanser, take your décor to new heights by creating Peppermint Snow Mints   place settings. Not only will these place setting additions serve their true purpose of directing your guests to their seat, at the end of the night, their after dinner mint will be patiently waiting at their seat.

Hickory Farms is here to save the day with our collection of superhero-inspired recipes. With these dishes, your child’s birthday party will be a smashing success. Wake your little superhero up to a great birthday breakfast with these Captain America Super Power Pancakes. Slice up some fresh strawberries and place them on top of a couple pancakes hot off the griddle. Then, fill the middle with halved blueberries. Spray a circle of whipped cream around the strawberries and add a whipped cream star against the backdrop of blueberries. Spiderman Strawberry Shortcakes are delicious and so easy to make!

Use mini chocolate chips to outline the eyes, and then fill in the outlines with more whipped topping. Guests will love these Batman Burgers topped with our Farmhouse Cheddar Cheese. Mold the burgers to resemble a face, and then after they’re cooked, trim the top in the shape of Batman ears.
