The Feast of the Transfiguration is coming up on August 6th! It is an extremely important event in the life of Jesus. So many pivotal things are revealed during this story, Jesus' divine nature, his authority given by God, his fulfillment of the Old Testament Law and Prophets...the list goes on and on!
In the story, Peter recognizes the moment's significance and suggests that he build three tents, one for Jesus, Moses, and Elijah. I thought a cute way to celebrate this day would be to construct a "mountain" on your dining table and top it with three graham-cracker chocolate tents. Just for fun, I added some sprigs of rosemary stuck in little cubes of cheese!
Note: Make sure that you make more than three tents if you have more than three kids!
To make the "mountain", turn a large pot upside down on your kitchen or dining table. Cover with a brown tablecloth or brown fabric.
To make the "trees", take a sprig of rosemary or a sprig from a tree or bush, insert the tip of the sprig into a small cube of cheese.
Graham Cracker and Chocolate Tents
3 Tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips 2 Tablespoons water 2 packages of graham crackers Place the chocolate chips and water in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, stir and then continue microwaving in 30-second increments, stirring until smooth.
Break graham cracker sheets in half. Cover a square with melted chocolate and set it down. Place two other squares on top of the square covered in chocolate and let them come together to form a teepee. Hold the teepee together and spread melted chocolate where they join together. Set aside and allow the chocolate to harden.
Serve up on a "mountain" with little trees and enjoy The Feast of the Transfiguration!
