When I hear “Christmas,” the first thing that comes to mind, besides presents, is spending time with my family and watching funny movies. One thing that I haven’t done in a long time however, is making Christmas treats. When my sister and I were little we would go over a friend’s house to make holiday treats and then take them home to our family. Here are 8 fun treats to make for people of all ages!
1.Corn Flake Holly Wreaths
These were one of my favorite treats to make when I was little. I loved the squishing the cereal and marshmallows in my hands and then adding the food color in making it look more festive.

2. Peppermint Candy Cane Cookies
This was my second favorite cookie to make especially when we had to roll the dough to form the shape of the candy cane. This is especially fun to do with smaller kids since it allows them to handle and shape their own unique candy cane.
3. Ginger Melted Snowman Cookies
Although no one would love to see everyone's favorite snowman melt, these are a cute idea especially when the snow starts to melt and our snowmen go with it.
4. Ball Jar Snowman
This is an especially cute idea to give away as a Christmas present.
5. Grinch Fruit Kabobs
For those who don't exactly have a sweet tooth here's a great healthy alternative and it's still just as sweet.
6. Reindeer Cupcakes
These are fun and what's even better is they have a built-in handle to keep the mess to a minimum.
7. Snowman Cupcakes
Here's a fun way to keep everyone's favorite snowman still standing.
Last, but not least...
8. Holiday Tree Brownies
A great way to show your Christmas spirit with a fun way to carry around your own Christmas Tree.
