8 Delicious Homemade Holiday Snacks

These Delicious Recipes Are Perfect to Enjoy This Christmas. 

It wouldn’t be Christmas without sweet and savory festive treats! There’s always so many to choose from and it seems like new ones come out every year. Why worry about which snacks to buy at the store when you can make some at home? Not only will you get to enjoy all kinds of different snacks for less but making them can be a family activity! Some of these treats are easier to make than others but I’m sure there’s something everyone in the family can do to help. These are some of the best homemade snack recipes around and are sure to fill hearts and bellies with Christmas cheer.

Candy Cane Fudge

Everyone craves that cool bite of peppermint around the holidays, especially with white chocolate in the mix. This recipe not only satisfies that craving but is one of the easiest on this list. Four ingredients and your microwave are all you’ll need!

Christmas Crack (Holiday Chex Mix)

I saw this recipe and was like “What is THAT?” Seriously, this looks like something you make and then immediately need to hide. There is no way something like this would last more than an hour in my house.

Sugar-and-Spice Nuts

This is a great choice if you’re entertaining and want something to pair with wine or cheese. Or maybe you have some family members who can’t get enough nuts around the Christmas season. Either way, I’m sure they’ll be happy you made this delicious cashew and almond snack.

Popcorn Party Mix

When I hear the words “party” and “mix” together my stomach starts to rumble. This recipe has a lengthy list of ingredients, but it’s so worth it. Christmas just isn’t complete if my face isn’t in a bowl of something. Make this and let me know how it is, like vicarious snack eating.

Drinking Chocolate (French Hot Chocolate)

I have never been a big fan of powdered hot chocolate, and this sounds like the antidote to my watery chocolate Christmas. You’ve got to give it to the French, this recipe is chocolate euphoria. It also sounds like it’s very filling!

Oreo Cookie Christmas Ornaments

These adorable snacks are double the fun! You get a delightful cookie snack and a cute craft to make with the kids. No baking is required either, just the microwave to melt the chocolate.

Cherry and Pecan Divinity

I had never heard of Divinity before reading this recipe but now I can’t stop thinking about it. Maraschino cherries are a top-tier dessert food, and I will make or eat anything that involves them. Try this recipe out yourself and see if they’re as divine as they look!

Saltine Cracker Toffee

I know by now it’s clear I love sweet and savory treats, but this is different. Saltines are such a beloved comfort food and pairing them with fudge and caramel might be the secret to happiness. Two trays of this are going in the oven as we speak.
