Best Christmas Treats for Neighbors

The holidays are a time for giving, and what better way to show your neighbors some festive cheer than with tasty Christmas treats from your kitchen. Whether you make everything yourself or spruce up something from the store, you can bring delight to your neighbors and give them something to enjoy for weeks leading up to and after the Christmas holiday.

Read on to see our five most delicious treats perfect for giving to your neighbors:

1. "White Christmas" Chocolate Pretzels

Are your neighbors dreaming of a white Christmas? Give them some white chocolate-covered pretzels for the holidays. Just melt gourmet white chocolate chips in a bowl, and dip the pretzels into the gooey mixture. Set them aside to harden, and then decorate the pretzels with colorful red and green edible glitter for more holiday fun.

2. Chocolate Melting Snowmen

This quick video recipe on the Better Homes and Gardens website shows you how to create cute, edible snowmen from marshmallows, peanut butter cups, vanilla and chocolate cookies. Your neighbors will devour these tasty holiday treats while enjoying their adorable snowmen faces.

3. Peppermint Bark Fudge

Lemons for Lulu has a delicious holiday recipe for peppermint bark fudge on her blog. This treat combines the perfect blend of chocolate and peppermint to put your neighbors in the Christmas spirit. The final product fills an entire 8-by-8-inch baking pan and creates quite a few servings if you cut one-inch squares.

4. Christmas Tree Rice Krispies Treats

If you've ever made Rice Krispies treats, you'll love this recipe on the Cookies and Cups blog. The secret is in the green food coloring that you add during the mixing process. Once you've baked the treats, stack them on a serving plate in the form of a Christmas tree. Add a few colorful M&M's here and there to serve as decorative ornaments.

5. Snow-Covered Popcorn

Kick off the holiday month with a bowl of snow-covered popcorn. Pop some plain popcorn, and pour it into a decorative red bowl. Melt and drizzle white chocolate over the popcorn, and top it off with some red and green M&M's. Cover the bowl in holiday plastic wrap, and present it as a gift to your neighbors.

Best Christmas Treats for Coworkers

Yummy treats make the ideal Christmas gifts for coworkers, giving them something tasty to snack on at the desk as they work. Chocolate marshmallow pops and cinnamon sugar pecans tickle the taste buds and provide that extra sugar rush to get through the workday. Though sweet treats can perk up even the most disgruntled worker, everyone will need to use their hands to enjoy their snacks. Therefore, you'll want to make treats that keep their fingers clear and clean while working at the keyboard.

Read on for our five favorite tasty holiday treats that your coworkers will love:

1. Candy Cane Marshmallow Pops

Candy canes and chocolate – what could be more appropriate for the holiday? With this recipe from the Liv Life blog, you'll surprise everyone in the workplace with something sweet and tasty for Christmas. You can also switch up the dark chocolate for white or Dutch milk chocolate from our online store, and make your own tasty version of this holiday treat.

2. Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies

You can enjoy a cookie any day of the week, and Christmas is no exception. After all, if Santa Claus enjoys this tasty treat, your coworkers will also love them. Make the cookies using a typical chocolate chip cookie recipe, but add some crushed peppermint to the mixture. You can also use metal cookie cutters in the shape of angels, bells and candy canes to capture that festive spirit.

3. Cinnamon Sugar Pecans

The cinnamon sugar pecan recipe on the Fresh Dreamer blog has the right idea for delicious treats. With an egg, some vanilla extract, pecans, sugar and water, you can create a delicious Christmas treat for everyone in the office to share.

4. Holiday-Themed Donuts

Everyone will feel the holiday spirit when you bring Christmas-themed donuts into work. With some red and green icing and a few decorating tips, you can apply colorful designs to pre-made donuts from the store. Avoid using edible glitter on the donuts as it can stick to everything and cause a mess.

5. Chocolate Ornament Pops

Transform melted chocolate into yummy pops for everyone at the office. With our Christmas ornament molds, you can easily make ornament-shaped pops, each with a special design to commemorate the holiday.
