Ramen around the Christmas Tree! 5 Noodle Gifts

My family loves ramen.  
It's fun to eat, easy to make 
and there are so many ways to celebrate with it for the holidays.
This year it will be Ramen around the Christmas Tree!

O Christmas Tree, Cup O Christmas Tree Gift

This eco-friendly gift is perfect for everyone, 
especially the "Christmas Tree Huggers" on your list...

Save your Cup O' Noodles container and plant a mini evergreen inside.
What a way reduce, reuse, recycle and say, 
Peace on Earth!

Make it a Ramen Holiday

Everyone loves Chex Mix, but this version has a slight Asian flair.

It makes a unique gift that is totally addictive...

Dry ramen noodles add to the flavor and crunch
and wasabi peas give it some kick...

It is definitely a flavorful adventure!

Ramen Holiday Snack Mix
Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees

In a large bowl combine:
2 packets of Top Ramen broken into bite size pieces
3 cups Rice Chex 
3 cups Wheat Chex
1 cup peanuts (I like Planter's Red Skins)
1 cup wasabi peas

Melt 6 tablespoons butter and stir in:
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Then pour over dry ingredients and stir to coat.
Place on parchment lined baking sheet and bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.  Allow to cool before placing in airtight containers.

Give Santa's Beard some Cheer

Ramen noodles served on a Santa plate,
give him a delectable make over!

The perfect way to watch his hair Ho, Ho, Grow...

Top Ramen with Ramen 

Deck the gifts with ramen and ornaments.

The recipient will be bowled over with this ramen ornament 
and red and green packaged noodles.

The perfect present presentation.

Make a Ramen Wreath

My son would eat ramen daily if he could.
What better way to top his gifts than with a wreath of one of his favorite things?

To make:
Cook plain ramen noodles in boiling water until just soft, about 2 minutes.
Drain and let cool on paper towels.
On a parchment lined baking sheet, form a wreath shape with the ramen, packing the ramen tightly together.  It helps to form it around a small bowl in the middle, then remove the bowl before placing in a 250 degree oven for approximately 1 hour until wreath is set. 

Have yourself a Merry Ramen Christmas!
