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.

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
