Who can resist a steaming mug of hot chocolate? Not us.

This one is nice and easy to make and serves as a fun one to make with the kids. As much a craft as it is a treat, it is certain to delight. As an added benefit, it is healthier than most holiday treats, so you and your family can enjoy it without any guilt.
Looking for a treat that comes together in five minutes or less? Then this one is for you. This popcorn recipe is great for any occasion, but we love making it for Christmas movie marathons. So make a big bowl, grab your throw blankets, and settle in.
If you like the recipe above, you must be a fan of sweet and savory combinations. If that is the case, give this one a try. These pretzel sandwiches are festive, tasty, and perfectly play to the sweet and salty combination that so many of us adore.
