Make Christmas Treats for Santa!

Santa Claus will be really busy come Christmas Eve, so leave out a plate of sweet treats to help him fuel up for his long journey. Even though he has a soft spot for milk and cookies, he loves munching on a variety of snacks, so check out some of Kidzworld's yummy ideas for Christmas treats!

Jingle Balls

You might make a mess in the kitchen while preparing these chocolate-covered peanut butter balls, but Santa will totally love 'em!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 package of chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 tbsp parawax

Instructions:

  • Mix peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.
  • Melt chocolate chips and parawax over low heat.
  • Take the chilled peanut butter mixture and roll 'em into balls about the size of a quarter.
  • Using toothpicks, dip and coat the balls in chocolate. Place them on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper and refrigerate until they're ready to serve.

Fruits, Vegetables and Sandwiches

Santa may have a sweet tooth, but he also loves fruits, veggies and sandwiches. Make him something healthy to snack on, like turkey on whole wheat bread, and cut up some carrots and celery sticks. You can also leave him an apple or banana to munch on-the-go.

Minty Hot Chocolate

Help Santa quench his thirst with a cup of hot chocolate. You can probably find a package of Nestle Hot Chocolate Mix in the kitchen cupboard. Add a candy cane as a garnish to turn it into a minty hot chocolate so that Santa will have fresh breath all night long!

Reindeer Treats

Don't forget to leave treats for the reindeer cuz they'll be just as hungry as Santa! Here's a quick and easy snack to make for them - mix rolled oats, raisins and dried fruits together in a big bowl. You can buy dried cranberries, apricots or dates at the grocery store. Sprinkle this dry mixture on the lawn or patio so that Rudolph and his buddies can enjoy a snack while Santa's inside puttin' presents under the Christmas tree.

Maybe they're trying a little too hard to impress you. Maybe they're desperate for a friend and don't want to lose you so they're trying to please you. Just calmly ask them if they could stop trying to be exactly like you and instead be themselves, because people like to be friends who are themselves. Good luck! -HannahG

Hey, just move on. If she/he can't see what a great person you are, then they don't deserve you. You're an amazing person and if they believe differently, then they don't have a clue about what they're missing. -HannahG

Look, I know that it's bad what she did. It's wrong. But there's nothing you can do about that. Let her live her own life, the best thing to do is just leave it alone. If she wants to take care of a child, she'll deal with the consequences. She makes her own decisions, so if that's what she wants then you shouldn't interfere with it. Forget her. Just don't make the same mistake. I know some girls out there believe that their boyfriend totally loves them, and if they have ########### they'll love their girl even more. That's not always the truth. They always say it's not gonna be me, I'm not gonna make the same mistake, my boyfriend loves me no matter what, and they turn out wrong. That's the end of my rant. Just leave her alone, you'll be better off. -HannahG
