The holidays are a great time to snack to your heart’s content. Puppy chow is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. I can never put it down once I start! Here is a way to put a Christmas spin on puppy chow. It is so addicting!

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups Rice Chex cerealed9f54a3d36b5d361f0d70597c306389
  • 10 ounces vanilla almond bark or melting vanilla white chocolate
  • 1 cup crushed candy canes
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Pour the Chex cereal into a large bowl. Melt the white chocolate or almond bark according to the directions on the package. Pour the melted chocolate over the cereal and stir until it is completely covered. Next, add in the crushed candy canes. Dump the powdered sugar into a Zip Lock bag and then pour the chocolate/candy cane coated cereal into the bag. Seal up the bag, then shake until the cereal is covered by powdered sugar. Pour the puppy chow into a plastic container that has a tight fitting lid. This stuff doesn’t last long, trust me! It will be gone before you know it.  It is great as a little gift if you pour it into a goodie bag and tie a bow on it!

XOXO, Chels

Christmas time is here! I repeat, CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE! And with Christmas come delicious treats. Today’s delicious Christmas-themed sweet is holiday popcorn that will remind you of the Grinch himself!

Ingredients:grinch-popcorn2

  • Microwave popcorn
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • Blue and yellow food coloring
  • Another 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • Red M&Ms

Pop your microwave popcorn, and once it is done pull out all of the un-popped kernels. Next we make the marshmallow mixture. Melt ¼ cup of butter in a saucepan, and once it is melted add the 3 cups of marshmallows. Stir together until they are melted, and turn the heat off. Add 2 drops of yellow food coloring, mix until it is bright yellow, and then add a small drop of blue. Stir it until it turns green, then pour this mixture over the popcorn. Gently mix it in slowly until the popcorn is mostly covered. Cover a cookie sheet with foil, then pour the popcorn mixture onto it. Drizzle some of the marshmallow mixture over it so the M&Ms and marshmallows have something to stick to, then sprinkle ½ cup of mini marshmallows and M&Ms onto the popcorn. Allow it to cool, then eat up!

Your friends will love this festive treat fit for a Christmas movie night.

XOXO, Chels

I am a sucker for a soft, gooey sugar cookie. Especially when they are Christmas themed! This recipe is Chelsea Crockett tested and Chelsea Crockett approved! Here is a recipe for some fun Christmas sugar cookies that are sure to be a hit with everyone who lays eyes on them.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softenedChristmas-Funfetti-Sugar-Cookies-by-sallysbakingaddiction.com-5
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles, plus more for sprinkle on top before baking

In a large bowl using a hand-held mixer or stand mixer, cream the softened butter for about 1 minute on medium speed. You want it to be nice and smooth, and then add the sugar on medium speed until fluffy and light in color. Mix in egg and vanilla. Scrape down the sides as needed and then set aside the mixture.

In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cream of tartar. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. The dough can become thick so you may need to stir them by hand. Once combined, stir in 1/2 cup sprinkles.
Scoop out large sections of dough and roll into balls. Make sure the balls are taller, rather than wide. Add a few more sprinkles on top of each dough ball. Chill the balls of dough on a cookie sheet for about 2 hours. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper. Baked the cookies for around 8 minutes. The cookies may appear not fully cooked, but once you allow them to cool they will finish baking. Remove them from the cookie sheet about 3 minutes after allowing them to cool.

These cookies are a crowd favorite! The sprinkles are such a cute added touch to your everyday sugar cookies!

XOXO, Chels

Christmas time means Christmas parties, and Christmas parties mean fun snacks and activities with friends! Today I am going to show you a sweet Christmas treat that you can make with your friends and family and serve at a Christmas party! These festive treats are sure to be a crowd favorite because A, they involve Oreos and B, they are adorable!

Ingredients:christmas-treats

  • Oreos
  • Cake pop sticks
  • Vanilla almond bark for the coating
  • Orange Tic-Tacs cut in half for the nose
  • Black frosting for the eyes and mouth

1.Insert the cake pop sticks into the white filling of the Oreo.

  1. Melt the vanilla almond bark according to the instructions on the package. Hold the cookie stick over the pot and use a spoon to coat the cookie with chocolate. Don’t dip the Oreo pop into the vanilla almond bark because it will cause the cookie to fall off the stick!
  2. Place your coated cookie pops onto a baking sheet covered in wax paper to dry. Before the chocolate coating fully dries, push the orange Tic-Tac halves into the middle of the cookie. Allow the pops to cool completely before adding the eyes and mouth.

And that ‘tis it! Now you can make adorable tasty treats with your friends this Holiday season! Keep an eye out for more Christmas themed recipes!

XOXO, Chels
