Easy-To-Make Winter Snacks

Christmas Tree Meringues

Take a look at these adorable meringues! They may look complicated, but they’re easier than you might expect. Once you prepare the meringue, you can get to work piping your little trees! All it takes is a piping bag with a tip of your choice, a relatively steady hand, and a lot of holiday cheer. You can use frosting to add little ornaments and a tree topper! Everyone will love these treats, and they’ll be asking you to make them every year!

Elf Shoe Bugles

These treats are so festive! The best part about them? There is absolutely no cooking or baking necessary, and you can make dozens in no time! (Trust us, you’ll need a lot. These are delicious.) All you need are some original Bugles, creamy peanut butter, some chocolate, and decorations. Fill a Ziploc or piping bag with peanut butter and fill each Bugle. To seal the ends, melt chocolate of your choice and dip the filled Bugles in. You can then roll the end in sprinkles, sugar, or any other decorations to make them more festive. Add a dot of frosting or a piece of candy on the “toe” to make a pompom and boom! A perfect (and delicious) elf shoe treat.

Monkey Munch/Puppy Chow

Let’s be clear – there is never a bad time to make monkey munch; we just feel like it’s an appropriate winter snack. This is another no-bake recipe that is addicting. All you’ll need is Chex cereal, chocolate of your choice to melt, peanut butter, powdered sugar, and a few other things you already have in your pantry. The chocolate and peanut butter get melted together and poured over the cereal. Powdered sugar can be applied in a bowl or a plastic baggie. This will be a hit with all ages because it’s so delicious!

Peppermint Bark

Nothing says winter like peppermint! This bark is one of the most delicious treats you’ll ever eat. With exactly four ingredients, you’ll create pepperminty, chocolatey goodness that your family and friends won’t be able to get enough of. This is a slightly more advanced recipe and isn’t great for kids because the stovetop is used to melt chocolate. You can let your little ones help smash the candy canes! Throw them in a Ziploc (maybe double bag to prevent holes) and crush them with a rolling pin. Melt the chocolate, form the layers, add the candy cane, and let it cool! A sweet treat perfect for the winter months. 

These winter treats will be a hit for kids and adults alike! We love the simplicity of the recipes because it means the kids can even help make them! Fair warning, your kitchen will get messy.
