‘Twas the night before Christmas…did you remember to make something for Santa? Here are a few easy last minute Christmas Eve snacks for Santa to ensure that your house doesn’t get skipped this year. And don’t forget the reindeer!
Peppermint Bark Pretzels
You can whip up these festive pretzels in the time it takes to hang your stockings.
New Fallen Snow Shortbread Cookies
Simple sparkly cookies that will definitely catch Santa’s eye.
Easy No Bake White Chocolate Thin Mints
Better leave the big guy a tall stack of these easy thin mints, they’re kind of addictive.
Hot Chocolate Bombs
Cookies are great, but it’s cold out there! Make him some steamy hot chocolate and maybe Santa will linger a while (and leave more presents!) –also perfect for sipping while admiring the tree on Christmas Eve.
Christmas Popcorn Reindeer Munch
Those reindeer work up an appetite on Christmas Eve, too! Leftovers make a great snack for holiday parties.
Easy Cocoa Meringues
It’s a good bet Santa’s on a diet, so why not offer him something he can enjoy without the guilt?
Thin and Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies
There’s no way Santa won’t love these crunchy chocolate chip cookies. Pairs perfectly with a glass of milk.
Perfect Peanut Butter Fudge in 10 Minutes!
We have it on good authority that Santa LOVES fudge, and I bet this is his favorite.
White Toasted Almond Bark
Everybody and their brother is probably leaving peppermint bark for Santa, but you can outdo them all with this uniquely delicious almond bark.
Fudgy Brownie Cookies
Need to get back on the good list? Tempt Santa with some dark chocolate ~ works like a charm 🙂
Russian Tea Cakes
Simple and delicious, these classic cookies look like perfect little snowballs–they would make a great addition to the fireside cookie plate.
Naughty and Nice Party Mix
Why not pack Santa a little to-go bag to take with him!
We always left these easy vintage shortbread drop cookies for Santa when I was growing up, and he never complained.
Christmas Cracker Candy
This classic crunchy combination of salty and sweet is guaranteed to make St Nick a happy camper.
Amish White Cashew Clusters
I bet Santa will fill his pockets with this classic Amish holiday candy.
The Sloppy Santa
If your house happens to be Santa’s last stop of the night, then a cocktail is in order!

What a happy roundup of Santa worthy recipes and treats. I hope you and your family had a lovely Christmas, and perhaps Santa stopped by for a nightcap! Hope you have a fantastic 2018 Sue!
Merry Christmas to you from Denmark. This tradition is not normal in Denmark but my youngest have done it never the less since she was four and met the real Santa in the forest… ( Santa is from Greenland in Denmark by the way)
She bake and decorate her own cakes with frosting special for Santa. We also give Santa and Rudolf apples and carrots. This year was the last. She’s turning 13 next year so I decided it was the right time to stop.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful time.
Merry Christmas Marina!
Sue every single one of these looks wonderful. I may have to squeeze a few in before the holidays have ended. Merry christmas!
Hi again…that question mark after the Merry Christmas to your family was supposed to be an evergreen tree…don’t know what happened…
Please adjust ? Thanks
I think my blog’s comment thing doesn’t accept those ~ I get the idea though!!
Sue, your delightful Christmas Eve email is the prettiest, most creative and mouth-watering collection of Santa treats I’ve ever seen! I just wonder which one my Santa would enjoy the most?? This post is a absolute keeper!
Merry Christmas to you and your family! <3
