Fast + Festive Holiday Snacks

‘Tis the season for all things DELICIOUS! The oven and I have never been besties, but I do adore making simple sweets and treats over the holidays. I’m all about something the whole family can enjoy — from gram + gramps to the littlest kiddos. Think chocolate-dipped pretzels, peppermint marshmallows and festive santa hats.

You’ll love these quick recipes I’m sharing today. Each one is quick to make, yet incredible tasty and oh-so-pretty to serve! Plus, these are a lot of fun to do with kids because of their simplicity. Happy munching…


Ingredients // melted white chocolate | pretzel twists | red sprinkles | mini-marshmallows

Generously dip 3/4 of the pretzel in white chocolate | Lay on parchment paper [fill in gaps by spooning more chocolate in empty areas] | Break a mini-marshmallow in half and place it on the corner of the pretzel | toss red sprinkles over the chocolate, while still leaving a thin layer of white as the hat’s ‘fold’

Allow 30-minutes to cool, or refrigerate for 10 minutes | Serve on white tray


Ingredients // melted white chocolate | marshmallow squares | crushed peppermint

Dip top half of each marshmallow in white chocolate | Place upwards on serving tray

Sprinkle peppermint over the white chocolate it’s still warm | Allow 10-minutes to cool


Ingredients // melted white chocolate | pretzel sticks | festive sprinkles

Lay pretzel sticks on the tray you want to serve them on (this allows the drizzle effect to present beautifully when serving!) | Drizzle chocolate over the pretzels

Toss festive sprinkles over the melted chocolate | Allow 30-minutes to cool

Serve + Indulge!
