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.

Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family

Both of my brothers have autism. I am 12 and a girl. I also have a 3 y/o sister. It always seems like my parents pay more attention to them then me. I don't want to tell them about it because they will think I'm being selfish. But i can't do ANYTHING fun. My little brother is allergic to half the ingredients in most candies, so I can never go trick-or-treating. And I have not had eggs since I was 3. I always have to do everything by myself. How do I deal with this?
