So far I’ve basically made fun of Christmas with horrible vintage ads, inflatables designers didn’t think through, sketchy Santas, and elves on the shelf doing very naughty things. However, this post be a hiatus from all the kitsch I featured so far for this treat article since I did a couple similar ones with Thanksgiving and Halloween (latter out of my mom’s suggestion and former just out of simply plain boredom that I couldn’t do much else). Still, as you know, like Thanksgiving, Christmas is a very big holiday for food, especially when it comes to candy and desserts. So much so that in fact, a lot of New Year’s resolutions are devoted to losing weight and January advertising features a lot of fitness stuff. Still, a lot Christmas dinner scenes are just loaded with food of almost every type imaginable that starting a diet on this time of year is impossible often brought by relatives charged with bringing something. Yet, sometimes it’s hard for people to bring a Christmas dish especially if their item wasn’t specified (though it usually is). However, we do have many items featured on the Christmas table like figgy pudding, candy canes, gingerbread cookies, and eggnog. Nevertheless, for those who want to be creative, here are plenty of dishes you may find to your liking whether it be for appetizers, salads, or desserts. So without further adieu, here are some great treats for those who want to put the festive spirit in this Christmas season.
1. For a great stocking stuffer, I’m sure a candy cane Rudolph would suit your fancy.
I’m sure reindeer don’t have red and white striped antlers. But still, very easy to make and I’m sure the kids will love it.
2. For your veggie platter why don’t go with broccoli Christmas tree decorated with peppers and cherry tomatoes?
Now I’m sure if you also include celery and carrots, I don’t think this design will work out for you. Still, very easy to make since it only requires 3 ingredients.
3. Start Christmas morning out with a Christmas tree made out of sticky buns.
I know that cinnamon rolls aren’t that good for you but what the hell, give yourself a break for the holidays. Hey, I’ll take one.
4. Instead of making conventional Christmas cookies, perhaps consider making cookies of ugly sweaters.
This goes particularly well if you have to go to an ugly sweater party. Still, I wonder who sells sweater cookie cutters?
5. For dessert, take a bite out of these Christmas tree cupcakes.
Don’t worry, health nuts, those Christmas trees are actually strawberries covered with a lot of icing. So these aren’t totally bad for you.
6. Take a bite out of this Christmas cornflake wreath.
Okay, so maybe cornflakes don’t do well against green dye. Yet, they do bring a leafy feel to it. Yet, I can’t say whether this one is actually good for you or not.
7. Get in the festive Christmas spirit with these ornament cake balls.
Now the most complicated thing about this is making the cake batter and balls. You can just add the Reese cups and Twizzlers later.
8. For lunch, perhaps a Christmas wreath candle cheese pizza is one that Wallace and Gromit would love.
Boy, this pizza uses a lot of cheese. Yet, I wouldn’t recommend this for the lactose intolerant or those with high cholesterol.
9. With pretzels, white chocolate, and Twizzlers, you can make your own Christmas wreath snacks.
Seems like white chocolate and Twizzlers can hold almost anything together. However, I wouldn’t recommend pretzel wreaths as a stuffing stuffer. They may be too delicate.
10. Bring a little cuteness into your life with these penguin Oreos.
Maybe penguins have nothing to do with Christmas, but hey, I’ll eat one of these. Also, who can’t resist these cute little penguins?
11. For a healthy snack for the kids, I’m sure these bread creations of Frosty, Santa, and Rudolph.
Of course, while Santa and Rudolph’s noses are from cherry tomatoes, Frosty’s eyes and mouth are made from blueberries and his body is made from strawberries. Santa might also have a strawberry hat while Rudolph has kielbasa antlers.
12. For lunch, you might want to grab some of this Christmas tree veggie pizza.
This is made from either bread or pizza dough spread over with cream cheese as well as topped with carrots, cherry tomatoes, yellow peppers, and broccoli. Still, it’s a healthier option than the cheese candle wreath one. Yet, won’t satisfy vegans.
13. Fruit lovers would love this candy cane made from strawberries and bananas.
Of course, if you want the peppermint freshness of the candy cane, this treat isn’t for you.
14. For the meat lover, here’s a wreath of mini sausage wraps.
Of course, this isn’t one of the more healthier wreaths here. But at least it brings in the festive spirit of Christmas.
15. For winter fun, consider making Christmas cookies of ice skates with mini candy canes on them.
Hey, I’m still going to post cookies on here. Yet, you have to appreciate the creative aptitude on this person’s part. Who knew candy cans can be used for ice skates?
16. Broccoli and cherry tomatoes are all this Christmas wreath veggie platter needs.
While this is the best food Christmas wreath by far, this doesn’t exhibit a lot of vegetable variety. Also, the center lacks dip.
17. Grace your Christmas party appetizers with this Christmas tree cheese platter.
Of course, this platter shows about 4 kinds of cheese and cherry tomatoes. Still, has a lot of color to it if you know what I mean.
18. Get in the festive spirit with this giant candy cane cake.
If you love Christmas like I do and have a taste in fresh baked Danishes, than this cake is for you. Seriously, it looks like a giant candy cane sticky bun.
19. Nothing makes a better dessert for Christmas than this wreath of chocolate fudge.
If this dish was featured at my family’s Christmas celebration, I would have a very hard time controlling how much I got. Boy, talk about death by chocolate, indeed.
20. Wow your Christmas dessert table with this jelly bean covered cupcake Christmas wreath.
I’m no fan of jelly beans but I have to admit, they do make good edible food decorations. But their taste is another matter.
21. Bring the joys of winter into your life with these flower covered snowmen.
Of course, these snowmen almost look real except that they’re made from dough. Yet, I’m sure you can’t really eat the arms though or else have your cheeks pierced.
22. Now these Santa crackers sure make a great snack idea.
Now I’m sure these are from Ritz crackers that contain cream cheese from a tube, celery, black olive bits, and pepperoni. Still, they are quite cute if you know what I mean.
23. Of course, you can’t forget these potato made Christmas trees.
Sure they may not be green but they sure do resemble Christmas trees. Besides, I’ll have a few of these.
24. For healthy snacks, I’m sure such cream cheese covered bread is the thing for you.
Now these are topped with long green onions and red bell peppers. Then again, I really don’t know what those green things are anyway for they could be a lot of things.
25. Make your kids’ Christmas special with these olive and cheese penguins with cherry tomato hats.
Now these are simply adorable despite that penguins actually live in the Southern Hemisphere (not just Antarctica). Still, nobody could resist these cuties.
26. As a party dessert, I’m sure these Santa hat pretzels will do quite nicely.
Now these are so cute and seem so easy to make. Man, the wonders you can make with pretzels. Also, love how they use mini marshmallows as the pom pom on the end.
27. As snowman melt with rising temperatures, these melting snowmen cookies will melt in your mouth.
Have to hand it to the person who thought of this. I mean I’ve never seemed these kind of cookies before. Yet, I don’t understand while some of them are smiling despite melting their way out of existence.
28. Grace your appetizer table with this Frosty the Snowman cheese ball or balls.
Seems like you can also do a lot with cream cheese as well over the holidays. Still, I’m sure he’ll have a lot of Ritz crackers dipped into him by the end of the night.
29. If you don’t like the ornament cupcakes, may I suggest ornament popcorn balls with candy cane hooks?
Now I also like how Christmas M&M’s are used to decorate these as well. Yet, I’m sure chocolate haters won’t like these either.
30. Deck the halls with these Christmas tree brownies.
Now these make a wonderful edition to any Christmas dessert platter. Still, no two of these brownies are alike if you know what I mean. Also, I would have a hard time resisting these treats as well.
31. Nothing makes a great lunch than this Christmas tree pizza.
Of course, this person forgot to use pesto as a sauce. Then again, there’s a specific process to making pesto. Yet, still very ornate.
32. I’m sure these Rice Krispie wreaths will bring joy to any child on Christmas.
You won’t believe how many stuff I’ve seen made from marshmallows and Rice Krispies. These are among the very best, especially since they’re dye green.
33. With some Twizzlers and frosting decoration, you can adorn this lovely large candy cane Rice Krispie treat.
Of course, this treat is one of these you may have to cut for the kids. Yet, it’s a great marvel of Rice Krispie ingenuity.
34. For those who like veggies, try these pepper and cucumber wreaths.
Now these are very adorable. However, I’m not sure if vegans would love them. Still, I’m sure they’re relatively easy to make.
35. I’m sure kids will delight in these cute Christmas cupcakes.
The cupcake with Santa being stuck in the chimney is especially hilarious. Still, why does the cake ball in the middle have eyes? Seriously, why?
36. What better holiday treat for adults than snowmen made of hardboiled eggs?
Now I’m sure the eyes and buttons are made from peppercorns. Still, these are adorable though your kids may not like them.
37. This peanut butter reindeer sandwich will make a great lunch for the kids.
Cute to add the pretzel antlers, the raisin eyes, and the red cherry tomato nose. Still, the kids would love this.
38. Now sandwiches are easy to serve this Christmas with this sandwich wreath.
Now this wreath can use some more parsley. Actually a lot more parsley. Yet, you need to see the sandwiches which I think are basically made from melted cheese and whole wheat bread.
39. With marshmallows, chocolate, and thin mints (it seems) these little snowman hats would sure delight.
These are simply adorable. Now if only if they had actual snowmen to wear them. Then again, how do we make them?
40. Nothing graces the Christmas table than a yule log cake.
This cake is from a restaurant. Still, seems like Santa is making his rounds in California’s Redwood Forest. Still, what’s with the Christmas tree?
41. This fruitcake brownie is sure better than the real thing.
Of course, gum drops may not be the best but at least the brownie part is tasty. After all, who doesn’t love brownies?
42. We’ve all heard of gingerbread men and ginger bread houses. So why not a gingerbread Christmas tree?
Sure it takes a whole plate and has a bunch of cookies stacked together. But hey, it has to be good. I also love the frosting.
43. Surely, I hope that some kids take to these Rudolph cake pops.
Sure they may not be the healthiest treats, but they’re still pretty cute if you know what I mean. Still, these use straws.
44. While we have fruit and Rice Krispy candy canes, we also have pizza ones, too.
I like how the white parts are covered with cheese and how the red part has tomato sauce. Still, I’m sure you can only have the cheese version and they’re whole wheat, too.
45. Have hotdogs? Then make these hotdog stockings on a stick.
Now these are probably made from mini hotdogs. I’m sure regular ones would be cut in smaller sections.
46. I introduce you to Frosty the Snowman cheese pizza.
Now this is perhaps the only snowman to be exposed to over 100 degrees and still survive. Still, must be tasty.
47. Melt a girl’s heart with these lovely heart shaped candy cane treats.
Because one of the best ways through a girl’s heart is through cooking and chocolate. This especially goes for chocolate. Remember that, fellas.
48. Have a frosty Christmas with this snowman ice cream treat.
Like snowmen, these treats also need to be refrigerated. Yet, I also hear they taste delicious. Nevertheless, so cute with those chocolate chip eyes.
49. Grace your dessert platter with this cookie wreath.
And I see that these cookies are holly leaves covered with green frosting. Man, I have a lot of wreaths on this post.
50. Deck the halls with these Rice Krispie treat lights.
Now these Rice Krispy Christmas lights are strung by Twizzlers. Man, Twizzlers is used in a lot of things here.
51. Make your Christmas simply heaven with this Christmas tree made from Rocky Road ice cream.
I’m sure this tree doesn’t just consist of one serving size if it’s as big as I think it is. Yet, sure looks good.
52. If you want your penguins with a soft and gooey marshmallow center, this is the treat for you.
Of course, this is a nice creative Christmas treat that your kids would certainly love. Also, it’s very adorable in chocolate and Oreo cream.
53. Make this Christmas a healthy one with this wreath veggie pizza.
Now this pizza makes a very colorful wreath I’m sure your family will love, once they get past the veggies that is. Oh, and it actually has pesto on it.
54. Nothing says Merry Christmas like a Christmas tree of spiced buns you can dip in tomato sauce.
Now I’m sure these buns taste really good. If I came across them, then I don’t know if I could resist overindulging myself. Unless these were made by The Olive Garden that is.
55. Serve your kids a healthy Christmas lunch with this Rudolph Sandwich.
Now this is quite clever with the strawberry nose, the pretzel ears, and the pea pod evergreen tree. Yet, I don’t think kids should take this kind of lunch to school. Might ruin the effect.
56. For party favors, I’m sure you can’t do anything wrong with these Santa and Christmas tree pretzel sticks.
Now I don’t know about you but doesn’t Santa seem a bit skinny on a pretzel stick. Then again, to each his own.
57. Don’t have Santa cookie cutters? Maybe you should improvise with a heart shape instead.
Maybe a bit of an unconventional choice but seems to work as long as you have the hearts face backwards. Also, quite adorable.
58. Make your Christmas ugly sweater party memorable with this ugly sweater cake.
Now this is a particularly amusing cake with the wreath, ugly sweater, and lights in all. Still, really goes well with the ugly sweater cookies.
59. I’m sure everyone would think these polar bear treats as adorable.
You especially have to like their little fruit roll up scarves. Still, even if real polar bears are slowly becoming casualties of global warming (it’s real, it’s caused by humans, and it’s happening now as we speak) and that they resemble koalas, they’re still irresistibly adorable.
60. Nothing graces your table set like these gingerbread Christmas trees.
Now I wonder if these trees were meant to eat or are just used for decoration. Either way, they seem delicious.
61. Reindeer cheese treats sure make healthy snacks for kids.
They also make great snacks for adults since cheese tends to go very well with wine and olives. Yet, beer goes better with pretzels, especially in October.
62. Nothing says Christmas like these adorable sugar coated snowmen on a stick.
Of course, while sugar gives these snowman sparkles, this doesn’t mean it’s necessarily good for you. And those dots may be stickers.
63. For health conscious folks, I give you these fruity Santa poppers.
Like the fruit candy canes, these poppers are also made of strawberries and bananas. Yet, unlike the fruit candy canes, they also have marshmallows.
64. These Christmas cupcakes are just simply adorable.
Of course, we have a lovely one of Santa and one of the gingerbread man. Also, the holly one really goes well.
65. A Christmas tree made out of sushi? Now I’ve seen everything.
Of course, this tree is for Japanese people with more traditional or health conscious diets. Seriously, they celebrate Christmas in Japan with KFC which is, well, basically heart disease on a plate.
66. Get into the spirit of Christmas with these Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer donuts.
Of course, these reindeer donuts would really make great Christmas gifts for your friendly neighborhood police officer.
67. Now Santa really seems to be stuck in the chimney with this cake.
Seems that Santa should’ve went on a diet before he decided to go down the chimney. Do you know what they used to put up in chimneys in the early 1800s? Naked school aged orphan boys.
68. Nothing encapsulates Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas, than this large cake.
Of course, this is the scene when the Grinch tries to dump the stuff at Mount Crumpitt and suddenly sees the Whos down in Whoville all singing on Christmas Day.
69. Make your own reindeer antlers from M&Ms, chocolate, and pretzel sticks.
This is perhaps the only picture in which all the ingredients are show. Still, quite easy to make, once you heat up the Dove chocolate.
70. Nothing says Merry Christmas than these Rice Krispy gingerbread candy houses.
They’re just like regular gingerbread houses with the exception of being made from Rice Krispies, not gingerbread. Still, really adorable if you know what I mean.
71. Tis the season for these Christmas tree cake poppers.
Now these may be made from cake but they certainly look a lot like little Christmas trees. But I bet they taste pretty good.
72. Nothing celebrates the season with these iced snowman cookie poppers.
How likely is it that those cookies under the icing are all Oreos? The answer is obvious. Still, they actually have snowman faces.
73. These Santa hat cake poppers certainly fit well in a box together.
I’ve seen a lot of these on the Internet. Still, much easier than Christmas tree poppers and much more popular, too.
74. I’m sure that your kids will fall in love with these reindeer poppers, especially Rudolph.
Odd, seems like these pops appear to be made for Santa’s sleigh team. Yet, I guess Rudolph is certainly the obvious one as well as the one the kids want the most. Seriously, kids are suckers for Rudolph since he has his own cartoon.
75. You’ve heard of Christmas trees and Christmas cookies. So how about a Christmas cookie tree?
I’m sure that this will be the centerpiece of the dessert platter. And I also love how the cookies are have green sugar and icing on them.
76. Celebrate the Christmas season with this cupcake Christmas tree.
I see a lot of people with green lips from all the green icing once everyone is done eating from it. Still, I totally love it though I wish the cupcakes were chocolate though.
77. For your Christmas party appetizers, I’m sure a cheese ball of a snowman wearing a wreath is for you.
I don’t know about you, but this snowman seems to remind me of a Roman emperor. Maybe it’s the wreath.
78. Remember, for Christmas, you can use cookie cutters for your pizza dough.
Now these are Christmas mini pizzas with peppers and tomato. However, I wish I had one with pepperoni. Don’t care what shape it’s in.
79. For Christmas party favors, you can’t go wrong with a chocolate Rudolph.
Just make sure that none of your child guests has a peanut allergy because this treat is made from Reese’s cups.
80. Nothing celebrates the season like these Christmas wreath pops.
I don’t know about you but I think these wreaths aren’t made from cake. Rather I think they’re made from small donuts, if they came as that tiny.
