HelloFresh’s Recipe Development Manager, Mimi Morley, explained, “It is fascinating to see the impact TikTok trends have on the types of foods people are experimenting with, and the many different exciting ways there are to cook them.

"You can create a real talking point for your family and friends by putting a festive twist on this year’s biggest TikTok trends in time for Christmas entertaining. Take a look at my Christmas party food tips and tricks for adding some festive cheer to any Christmas spread. Top tip: simply adjusting the arrangement of foods into festive shapes can really add that extra special touch to your table.”

Mimi recommends these seasonal twists on TikTok trends:

Reindeer Cloud Bread

Cut cloud bread in half like a burger bun, and fill with turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce - maybe even a few sliced sprouts if you're feeling brave! Then half a mini pretzel and stick into the top of your sandwich to look like reindeer antlers, with half a black olive for a nose. 

Baubled Butter Board

Top your butter board with sliced figs, bacon lardons and diced green peppers and pomodoro tomatoes for a seasonal treat for all the senses. You can even add colourful, nutrient rich dippable veggies like radishes or carrots.

Christmas Morning Pesto Eggs

Pesto eggs with a festive twist would make a wonderful Christmas morning breakfast. To make them look a little more festive, simply use red pesto on one side and green pesto on the other, then sprinkle with a few chilli fakes and chipped chives; it’s as simple as that!

Christmas Tree Custard Yogurt Toast

Custard yoghurt toast would make an equally delicious festive breakfast or brunch on Christmas morning. To take this incredible treat to the next level, top with kiwis cut into Christmas tree shapes, pomegranate seeds or sliced cherries. You could even add a sprinkle of cinnamon if you like.

Winter Baked Oats

Combining mixed spices to your baked oats will not only smell heavenly, but will taste delicious and Christmassy too. I recommend using cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and nutmeg.

Marry Me This Christmas Chicken

Thinking of popping the question over Christmas? You’ll be in good company, as research shows over 40% of engagements happen between Christmas Eve and New Year's Day. Nothing says it better than ‘marry me chicken’, so why not make it extra special and extra festive by adding sprigs of rosemary and diced Golden Queen tomatoes to your herbed chicken, topped with a few dried orange and lemon slices.
