Crazy Christmas Food for Your Holiday Party

I can’t wait to make this fruit Christmas tree this year. At first, I was looking for the pineapple and then realized it’s the “trunk” of the tree. What a smart idea!
Take something savory to the office Christmas party. These pine cone cheese balls are delicious paired with your favorite crackers. And almonds just happen to be my favorite nuts!
Or how about a snowman cheese ball for a kids’ Christmas party?
Reindeer brownies are the perfect holiday dessert – no special recipe needed. Just make your favorite brownies, and decorate as shown.

Kick your Krispie Treat game up a notch. Shape them into trees, and add M&Ms and a marshmallow glaze to decorate the trees.
These pretzel snowmen are one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. The pieces are held together by a fruit roll-up scarf and white chocolate. Isn’t that genius?
Maybe you’d like to offer the kids a healthier snack? These Grinch fruit kabobs definitely fit the bill (marshmallow aside… but what’s one little marshmallow).
Christmas tree waffles are the perfect breakfast for Christmas morning. Don’t forget the chocolate candy “ornaments!”
