Top 10 Christmas Party Treats Kids Will Love

Christmas is a time of year that many children look forward to, and we can easily see why between the parties, presents, and of course, the sweet, decorative treats. From Santa, snowmen, reindeers, candy canes, Christmas trees, to the elves, Christmas party treat ideas are plenty. If you’re hosting a Christmas party this holiday season, consider these top 10 Christmas party treats to delight the kids with.

1.     Santa Hat Cupcakes
Kids love cupcakes, but they’ll love them even more when you deck them out to look like Santa. Here’s how to make them.

  • Get a box of your favorite vanilla cupcakes and bake them according to the box directions. Then simply let them
  • Make a batch of buttercream (or buy pre-made) frosting and color it red with food coloring.
  • Use a piping bag to frost the cupcakes, starting with a cone-shaped pile of frosting in the center to create Santa’s “hat.”
  • Add a mini marshmallow to the top of each hat for Santa’s pom-pom.

2.     Candy Cane Twist Cookies
The sight of candy cane often signals Christmas. Delight children with candy cane-shaped cookies by twisting rolls of plain cookie dough. Use food coloring to help make a batch of red dough and brown dough to mix with the plain dough. This treat has been featured in Country Living.

3.     Christmas Tree Brownies
Turn the plain brownie into a Christmas tree, and what’s even better is when you can eat it off a candy cane stick.

Here’s a Christmas Tree Brownies recipe that’ll put you in a holly jolly mood:

  • Whip up a batch of your most beloved brownies, and chill ’em out.
  • Rock those brownies into a triangle shape to resemble a Christmas tree.
  • Decorate the brownies by drizzling on some ooey gooey melted chocolate or icing, adding small candies or sprinkles to create ornaments.
  • For a final festive touch, drizzle some white chocolate over the top to create a snowy effect.
