Bite-size Christmas pizzas.
Who does not like pizza? Not only do these bite-size versions of the Italian classic taste delicious but they also look festive. You can cut out the dough to look like a Christmas stocking, Put some tomato sauce on it to make it red, decorate the upper part of the “stocking” with some cheese to resemble a white fur trim, and bake. Alternatively, cut out some tasty bite-size Santa’s hats.
Pinwheels are every party host’s go-to food. The basic version includes tortillas, your favorite soft cheese, vegetables, and thinly sliced meat. Add cranberries to serve them at your next Christmas holiday party.
I am sure many of your favorite salads would be welcome at your Christmas party but Caprese salad is especially appropriate due to the color combination of its ingredients. Red tomato, white mozzarella, and green basil; these colors are typically associated with Christmas. And the salad could not be easier to make. Simply slice the tomato and mozzarella into even circles and place alternating layers on a plate (don’t forget the basil of course). You can arrange the circles into the shape of a candy cane for an extra festive look.
Festive cheese balls.
Get yourself a couple of pounds of soft cheese (like goat’s cheese or ricotta) and divide it into three bowls. By mixing some chopped herbs into one you will add some green color and delicious flavor. Shape the mass into a ball and roll it in the herbs before placing it in the fridge to chill. Make the second ball red by mixing in a tiny bit of paprika or chili powder and rolling it in some chilly flakes (be careful not to overdo it). You can leave the third ball as it is (white) or add some toasted almond slices or crushed walnuts. Serve with veggies, crackers, or toasted bread.
Baked cranberry brie.
We are not done with cheese yet! This baked cranberry brie will have your guests salivating as soon as they step into the door and catch the scent of it. Ideally, you would slice the wheel of brie and sandwich the cranberry and walnuts between the two sides before baking, but if your wheel is thin enough you can just place them on top as well. The main factor here is timing as it needs to be served warm (with some crackers).
Chocolate-covered pretzel sticks.
Now let’s move on to desserts, and these pretzel sticks are really easy to make. You’ll need to buy a bag of pretzels, cover them in melted chocolate and sprinkle on some... well, sprinkles. Use red, green, and white ones to make your pretzel sticks more festive.
Strawberry Santa hats.
A red strawberry is placed upright on a white circle of whipped cream and its tip decorated with a small blob of the same cream does indeed resemble a Santa’s hat. You can serve these tiny hats as they are or place them on pies, cakes, or biscuits.
Individual cranberry cheesecakes.
Layer the biscuit base, cranberry jam, and the cream cheese filling in small mason jars and top with some more sweet berries. These sugary treats will make a perfectly sweet Christmas gift for your colleagues.
If you have children at home they will love decorating these (but not as much as they will love eating them). All you need is to put a large marshmallow on a popsicle stick and dip it into the brown chocolate. Break a small pretzel in half and stick the pieces in to represent the horns. And then you can have fun with the icing and draw on the face. If you want to make Rudolph you can stick on a red M&M as a nose.
Bundt cake with eggnog glaze.
Bundt cakes are some of the easiest and tastiest cakes to make and the fact that the sponge is infused with eggnog and covered in the sweet rum glaze definitely puts this family classic into the holiday food category.
Christmas tree brownies.
Instead of baking your brownies in a rectangular tray and cutting them up into squares why not bake them in a round one and cut the bake up into triangles. cover each slice with some green icing and place some M&Ms on top to represent the baubles. for a snowy Christmas, tree effect cover in white chocolate icing and sprinkle with some coconut flakes.
You have probably had mulled wine at your local Christmas market. But what is to stop you from making it at home and serving it up to your guests? It is extremely easy to make and requires just a handful of ingredients (red wine obviously being one of them).
