25 Christmas Snack Recipes That'll Keep Everyone Full & Festive (1)

This holiday season, leave nothing up to chance: Steer clear of any chances of "hanger" by serving up plenty of these easy Christmas snacks. Not only will these sweet and salty treats keep everyone feeling full and festive, but they'll also make sure you keep your spot on Santa's "nice" list this year. It doesn't matter the size of your snacking crew either. Each of these 25 Christmas snack recipes pairs perfectly with a leisurely night in watching corny holiday movies with your boo, a big potluck amongst friends and family, or simply just keeping warm inside solo!

As far as Team Delish is concerned, an expert level snack spread is maybe even more important than what's underneath the tree. So do yourself a huge favor and keep the table full with a few sweet and salty items people can graze on, like our recipes for antipasto Christmas tree cheese ball, eggnog truffles, and puppy chow. Not only does it mean everyone can make their own snack plate, but it also buys you some time to work on a larger Christmas lunch or dinner. Honestly, we love skipping the Big Meal altogether by loading up with some heartier apps, so don't be afraid of that option. No one we know has yet to get mad about feasting on this sausage roll wreath!
