The best part of holiday parties is you can make really fun and festive treats. Here are three treats which will make you the hit of any holiday party!

GRINCH KABOBS

These are a favorite because they’re fairly healthy and taste delicious!

You’re going to need strawberries with the stems cut off, green grapes, bananas, marshmallows, and coffee stir sticks.

First, take a marshmallow and slide it down the coffee stir stick. Next take the strawberry and pierce it with the stir stick. Do the same thing with the banana, then the grape, and top with a marshmallow!

 

HERSHEY KISS-M&M PRETZELS

Another really cute and tasty holiday treat are Hershey Kiss-M&M pretzels. Use a bag of pretzels along with a bag of Hershey Kisses and a bag of red and green M&Ms. Before you get started, preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

Spread the pretzels out on a cookie sheet until it’s full. Then, take a Hershey Kiss and place one on top of every pretzel. Place them in the oven, watching them closely because you don’t want them to melt completely. When you start to see them soften, take them out. Immediately add an M&M and place it on top of the Hershey Kiss, pressing down. Let these cool and you have another holiday treat perfect for a party!

 

ICED GRAHAM CRACKER SANDWICHES

The last treat is a sweet snack that everyone will love! You will need graham crackers, white icing, chocolate chips and red, green, and white sprinkles. Break apart graham crackers and spread them with white icing, topping each with another graham cracker. Get a bowl and pour the chocolate chips in the bowl, place it in the microwave, and set the timer for 30 seconds. When you take it out, stir it. If it’s not melted enough, put it in for another 10 seconds. Keep repeating this until it’s fully melted. Before you dip the graham cracker in the chocolate lay out wax paper. Also, put the sprinkles into a bowl. Take each graham cracker sandwich, dip it halfway in chocolate, then dip it in the sprinkles. Lay your creation out the wax paper. Repeat this until you have enough for everyone at the party.
