Fun and Frugal Christmas Snacks
Posted on Wednesday, December 12th, 2012 at 7:00 am
What kinds of snacks are you going to serve at your Christmas party? Sure, you could pick up one of those plastic trays of vegetables and cheese from the grocery store. Or, you could put together these fun and frugal Christmas snacks. Nobody’s going to remember the veggie tray, but people will talk about the cute snacks that you made this year!
5 Christmas Snacks
These are super cute! All you need are some strawberries and some whipped cream. Flip the strawberries upside down. Cut off the top – and it becomes a Santa hat. Use the whipped cream to create Santa’s head, and put the “hat” on top.
Cracker and Veggie Ornaments
Spoonful has a fun, christmas, spin on the typical crackers and veggies snack. Get a package of round water crackers. Spread some cream cheese on them. Cut up red peppers, green peppers, and yellow peppers into shapes, and stick the pieces into the cream cheese. Add carrots that have been cut into small circles. Add some small, round, peas. Use a broccoli stem as the “hook” on the ornament. Way more fun than a typical veggie tray!
Reindeer Mini Doughnuts
I found this one on the Free Fun Christmas website. It’s super easy to make! Get a box of chocolate mini doughnuts. Stick a red M&M into the center hole. Add some pretzel sticks for antlers. Now, you have a batch of Rudolph the Red Nosed Doughnut.
Healthy Candy Canes
All you need for this one is some bananas and some strawberries. Cut both into bite sized pieces. Arrange them into a candy cane shape on a small plate by alternating the banana and strawberry pieces. I found this one on the Make Do and Friend blog. You are going to want to serve these immediately, before the banana pieces start changing color.
Edible Christmas Tree
This awesome idea came from the Little Wonder’s Days blog. You will need a holiday bowl that is shaped like a Christmas tree. Fill it full of green grapes. Put a row of red raspberries, (or strawberries) across it as “garland”. Done! Would you rather have veggies instead of fruit? Fill the Christmas tree bowl with green olives. The “garland” can be made from cherry tomatoes.
