In my opinion, one of the best things about Christmas is the huge amount of tasty food on offer. It’s also a lovely opportunity to get the kids in the kitchen and create some yummy Christmas treats together.
Christmas themed food just seems to taste better! Why make a round biscuit, when you could make a Christmas tree shaped cookie – am I right?
I’ve collected together a few recipes I have come across that look absolutely adorable and perfect for the kids to get stuck into.
10 Tasty Christmas Treats For Kids

Sprinkle Rim Milk Glasses
This is a quick and easy way to glam up the classic ‘cookies and milk’! Hello Society has a lovely tutorial on how to create these Sprinkle Rim Milk Glasses. If you live in the UK like me, you’ll notice that the recipe calls for corn syrup. Worry not, here’s a handy method for creating your own version of the syrup:
Dissolve 300ml of sugar in 60ml of hot water and you’ll have the equivalent of light corn syrup. You could also use golden syrup as it has a similar texture.
Chocolate Orange Shortbread
Fancy a cookie to dunk into that milk? How about these Chocolate Orange Shortbreads from 3 Princesses and 1 Dude. Shortbread is such an easy recipe for kids to get involved with and they also happen to taste amazing and look very impressive.
