One of my favorite things about Christmas time is making treats with my kids in the kitchen.
Making Christmas cookies can be such a fun tradition to pass down to your children. When I was growing up, my mom and my Grandma always made candy for Christmas along with cookies. Christmas candy is so much fun to make. It can be pretty simple too! I am not much of a baker, but I love making candy! Your kids will love making candy with you too!
Here are some fun Christmas candy ideas for you to make with your kids this holiday season!
My girls LOVE pretzels. We always make candy treats using pretzels. They store very well and look so pretty packaged up in Christmas bags.
Rolo Pretzel Sandwiches – this is a quick and easy treat that uses Rolos, white chocolate and baby pretzels!
Easy Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites – super easy and a great gift for chocolate caramel lovers!
Chocolate Pretzel Christmas Trees – your kids will love drizzling candy melts to make fun Christmas tree shapes.
Oreo Chocolate Pretzels – Oreos and White Chocolate make the perfect match.
Bark has got to be my absolute favorite candy to make with the kids. Most of them are just melt and pour, let harden and break apart. So fun and so many variations!
Peppermint Bark – super simple and kids love crushing the candy canes.
Melted Snowman Chocolate Bark – your kids will have so much fun making this melted snowman candy!
Oreo Peppermint Bark – these look festive with colored Oreos too!
Christmas Marshmallow Pops – these are so simple and festive!
Homemade Gum Drops – gummies are so fun to make!
