Christmas Chemistry

For a wonderful holiday treat, start with one hydrogen and one oxygen atom.

Combine them carefully to produce a hydroxyl group (H-O).  Be careful when you bake not to let them get too close together.  350 degrees at about 30 minutes should do the trick.

Your first HO!

If you add a splash of pineapple, you can make a Hawaiian Ho.  Watch for the tiny bubbles to appear.

Once you have perfected the hydroxyl group, you will want to try to combine these to form a H-O-H-O.  Ho-Hos are delicious!

Finally, combine another HO with your Ho-Ho and behold:  Christmas fun for everyone!

And you didn’t think chemistry was fun!  All you have to do is add some Ho’s!

Merry Christmas!
