What are good Christmas snacks?

Good Christmas snacks are basically anything that looks, smells, tastes, or reminds you or your kids of Christmas!

This could be as simple as making red and green Christmas cookies or cupcakes, or making gingerbread men or gingerbread reindeer!

It could be something that reminds you of Christmas when you were little.

For example, my mom always used to make cheese bread when I was little, so if I were to make a vegan version of that cheese bread; that would be a good Christmas snack. Same for cookies or other snacks or treats you may remember from your childhood.

There is no bad or wrong Christmas snack if it has some meaning to you!

What do you serve at a Christmas party?

You serve food that kids will actually eat at a Christmas party.

You could serve sweet treats, savory snacks, or other foods.

Ideally, you’ll serve something that doesn’t require a fork or knife to eat.

Something easy to eat that isn’t messy, like finger foods.

What are good finger foods for Christmas?

Good finger foods for Christmas may include (but not limited to);

  • Holiday cookies
  • cupcakes
  • pretzels
  • pieces of fudge
  • peppermint bark that’s pre-broken
  • truffles or energy balls
  • and more!
