15. Santa Munch Christmas Popcorn

Santa Munch Christmas Popcorn

We love binging Christmas movies, and while we’re doing that we need snacks! One of the things I love to binge eat while binging TV is popcorn. I’m pretty sure Santa loves popcorn too, especially when it’s coated in white chocolate, mixed with pretzels, nuts, and M&Ms, and even more so when you package it in cute little bags. Santa munch popcorn snack mix is a little reminiscent of my Elf Munch recipe, which at some point I need to remake and reshoot and repost. Every year, I see that post pop up in my analytics and cringe a little, hoping that the reader clicks “home” after printing so they know I’m better now than I was then.

14. Christmas Light Cupcakes

Christmas Light Cupcakes

These Christmas Light cupcakes look so impressive but are actually so easy to make. You could have these done before your aunt can finish decorating her first sugar cookie. These cupcakes were some of the most fun cupcakes I have ever made. Especially since I got to snack on mini m&ms throughout the decorating process. Actually mainly because I got to eat so many m&ms. Having one container to decorate and one container to just snack on sure helped. It’s one of the best Christmas treat ideas I can share with you.

13. Chocolate Peanut Butter Stacks

If you need a ridiculously easy, no-bake dessert for a party, holiday cookie exchange, or just have a spur of the moment craving for chocolate and peanut butter, this is a perfect recipe. What I love about these little cookies or cracker, stacks is that they’re salty and sweet, crunchy from the crackers yet creamy from the peanut butter, and gooey from marshmallow creme. Every awesome dessert quality has been rolled up into one little bite-sized bundle. They’re incredibly addictive. Read the blog posts for chocolate recommendations.

11. Chocolate Kiss Cookies

Chocolate Kiss Cookies

These buttery, melt in your mouth cookies are topped with a chocolate kiss to create an easy, moreish dessert you won’t be able to stop eating! These are SO simple to make, yet totally addictive. I ate 3 straight out of the oven. No regrets. As soon as the plain cookies came out of the oven, I put the chocolate kiss into the centre. I then left them to cool for 5 minutes then ate one and it was just incredible. The chocolate kiss looked like it had held its shape, but as soon as you bite into the cookie, you get a burst of melted chocolate.

7. Rum Balls

Rum Balls

Rum Balls are a classic holiday treat. Boozy, chocolatey and rich, store these beauties in the refrigerator for several days for an even better flavour! Rum balls are pretty similar to turtle cookie balls or peppermint oreo cookie balls – just…boozier. Rum Balls are made with vanilla cookie crumbs, pecans, cocoa, confectioners’ sugar, and spiced rum. Mix everything in a bowl and roll into balls, then you just give them a quick toss in any topping you can think of. These do taste like spiced rum, so keep that in mind. Although if rum isn’t your favourite, you could try making them with bourbon instead.

3. White Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

White Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

These White Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies are crispy, chewy, and delicious. The perfect sweet treat for the holidays! Candy canes and peppermint aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. They’re a staple during the holiday season, but not everyone likes the taste of mint, which is understandable. Personally, I am a huge fan of the mint and chocolate combo, especially when paired with dark chocolate. White chocolate does add more sweetness though, so these cookies are not lacking in that regard.
