The Christmas season always brings with it an enthusiasm for baking and crafting delicious treats. Even if you’re not the one inspired by the season, someone you know probably is. But peanut butter balls, chocolate chip cookies, peppermint bark and peanut brittle can get old after a while. Here’s three ideas for holiday snacks you can make to spice up the barrage of traditional holiday sweets this year.
Santa’s Trash Cookies
Yeah, we’ll be honest and admit that that name will raise some eyebrows, but anyone who likes the combination of salty and sweet will enjoy these. Imagine the best things about chocolate chip cookies, pretzels, and potato chips, and then imagine a cookie recipe that brings it all together.

This next treat’s an interesting way to make crispy rice treats without it being a simple block of sugar and rice mashed together with marshmallow. This recipe takes inspiration from the shape and color of holiday wreaths, but uses corn flakes and crisp rice to turn the concept into a reality.

Sugar Cookie Truffles
Sugar Cookies might be the most recognizable holiday cookie out there, but why not take a new angle on them this year? Instead of cutting the same shapes and agonizing over getting the frosting just right, try making them into these coated cookie balls instead. Don’t worry, it’s not an iffy uncooked cookie dough recipe, this one starts with you crumbling baked sugar cookies and mixing it with cream cheese.
