Christmas is getting closer, and what could be more enjoyable than making the tastiest Christmas snacks together with your little one? Whether it's for a cozy Christmas dinner at home, a Christmas celebration at school, or just to have on the couch during a snack evening, these creative Christmas snacks will surprise everyone!
1. Sausage rolls in puff pastry
Who doesn't know them? Cocktail sausages wrapped in puff pastry are classic treats that shouldn't be missing during the Christmas season. Let your little ones help with rolling the pastry, and bake the snacks quickly and easily in the oven. You can even shape the sausage rolls into a Christmas star or Christmas tree. Prefer a vegetarian version? You can use vegetarian sausages for the rolls.
2. Cucumber Christmas trees
Want something tasty and healthy for your Christmas dinner, but not sure what to make? Christmas trees are simple but super creative to make. Slice the cucumber into rounds and thread the slices onto skewers in a zigzag pattern, adding a cute little star on top. This star could be made of cheese or pineapple, for example. It not only looks festive but is also delicious and healthy.
3. Gingerbread house
Gather the glitter, mini marshmallows, and other candies. The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating a gingerbread house. It's like Hansel and Gretel's house, where you'd want to nibble on all the sweetness!
4.Christmas tree pizzas
Who doesn't love pizza? Bake your homemade Christmas pizzas and give them a festive twist! Let your child help with topping the trees with ham, cheese, peppers, salami, and other delicious pizza toppings. Use a dough cutter in the shape of a Christmas tree to create the most beautiful Christmas tree pizzas for the school or home Christmas dinner.
5. Stuffed eggs
Another classic is stuffed eggs. Homemade stuffed eggs are always the tastiest! Use creamy mayonnaise, mustard, and herbs of your choice, such as curry powder, and let your little one help with peeling the eggs. Decorate the stuffed eggs with a sprinkle of paprika or fresh herbs for a festive touch. The eggs will be gone before you know it!
6. Reindeer marshmallows
For a sweeter surprise, reindeer marshmallows are a perfect snack. Decorate large white marshmallows with melted brown chocolate sauce and use pretzels to make the reindeer's ears. Your child can help with applying the eyes and nose. For example, use M&M's for the noses and white chocolate drops for the eyes.
