5 Mesosamerican Themed Party Treats

I am such a nerd. I have become part of a “book club” or sorts for studying Mesoamerican topics in relation to the Book of Mormon.

To kick off our study group, I decided to make some treats, but of course, they had to be Mesoamerican-themed.

We’ve officially named the occassion “Pizzan-Itza”

Here are a few ideas for if you want to throw a Mayan party of your own!

1. Pizzan-Itza: A Mayan Pyramid Pizza

Just get any old pizza and decorate it with toppings to create some mesoamerican design. I opted for creating a Mayan pyramid out of olives. Everyone hated the olives.

On top of a pizza party with pyramid iconography, we needed other treats.

2. Mayan Designed Cookies

I didn’t actually make this for the party last night, but if I had more time I totally would have.

Bake some delicious spice cookies, and let your imagination run wild with Mayan and Aztec designs. If I were doing this one, I would probably make some circular ones that looked like the Mayan or Aztec calendars.

3. Human Hearts: Balled Watermelon

Just use an ice-cream scoop to create spherical chunks of watermelon and voila! Human Hearts.

5. Sun Chips

And to finish it off, we had Sun Chips because it was the Solar Equinox. Mayans were all about solar events and holidays.
