With the holiday season quickly approaching, we went on a hunt for some snack ideas that match this season’s festivities. These holiday snacks are great to put in your kids’ lunchboxes or even to bring to work to surprise your coworkers with a little holiday spirit. Can’t think of what to get your Secret Santa? Wrap these treats up and they’re guaranteed to make your friends smile. Not only are these treats fun and cute, they’re easy to make. Enjoy!
Reindeer Rice Krispies
We love these cute treats from Eighteen25 because they are super simple and beyond adorable. Wrap them individually or create a cute basket of reindeer treats for the perfect gift!
The ingredients you’ll need are:
- Premade (or homemade) Rice Krispies treats
- Candy eyeballs
- Red M&M’s, or a different red candy
- Dark chocolate for melting
- Craft spoons (or popsicle sticks)
The only thing you really need to do for this recipe is melt a little chocolate (to make the antlers and attach the eyes and nose). This couldn’t be any easier and the result is too cute!
Peppermint Oreo Truffles
As soon as we found this recipe, we could not keep our mouths from watering. These truffles, from Two Twenty One, look delicious and are perfect for a winter dessert.
For this recipe, you’ll need:
- A 16 oz. package of Oreos
- An 8 oz. package of cream cheese
- 5 teaspoons of peppermint extract
- 8 oz. of white melting chocolate, candy coat, or almond bark (melted)
- Crushed candy canes (if you want to add the peppermint look seen in the photo above)
The recipe itself is also very simple. Crush the Oreos, mix in the cream cheese and peppermint extract then refrigerate. Roll the mixture into balls, dip in the chocolate and place on wax paper. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes and refrigerate until firm.
This is the easiest recipe on the list and it may also be the most adorable. Win-win! We especially like these Snowman Treats, from The 36th Avenue, because they are made with Sno Balls. Snowman, Snowball…clever.
For this treat you’ll need:
- Sno Balls
- Wilton black sparkle gel frosting
- Orange M&M’s for the nose
- Paper Straws
Ready to be blown away by how simple this is? Take the Sno Ball, make two eyes with the black frosting. Then, add a dot of black frosting where the nose should go and stick an orange M&M on top of the black frosting dot. Lastly, cut a paper straw in half and stick it into the Sno Ball. Done. Awesome, right?
The holidays are about spending time with friends and family. You can give these treats as gifts, or make them with loved-ones as a fun afternoon activity. From all of us at Levin Furniture – Happy Holidays!
