The holidays on Pinterest usually mean crafty recipes like melted snowman cookies or pretty table decorating ideas like olives on a bed of rosemary. That's why when I saw a slew of photos of bread shaped to look like Santa Claus in my feed, I was a little concerned. Would you eat something that looked like this?

Taste of Home seems to have come up with the original recipe for santa claus bread. The final result looks complicated, but is actually easy to make. You basically use your favorite bread dough recipe, cut some of the dough to look like long tentacles, and then braid them to look like a beard. Then you use red dye to make the Santa Claus hat.

I honestly can't think of anything more creepy (or delicious?) than ripping off Santa's beard and slathering some butter on it before stuffing it in my mouth.
