Christmas snacks and apps!

We are getting ready to host our second annual Christmas in the Edwards house, so I have been very busy menu planning for the week leading up to Christmas, and brainstorming some yummy snacks and apps to have on and around the holidays.

As for snacking, I will be making some tried and true things along with trying out a new recipe from Jennifer at Life in the Green House!

These are SO good. I have made them for a year now and they 
are always gone at the end of the party or holiday!

Taken from Plain Chicken 

This is a great recipe for hot and spicy chex mix. I LOVE homemade chex! 
And, it is super easy to travel with!

This is basically food crack. It's DE-LICIOUS. And, the blogger I got the recipe from recommends using grahams instead of saltines. Might have to try both this year!

This is a new one from Jennifer and I can't wait to try it! Sounds yummy and EASY!

What are some things you are going to be making for the upcoming holidays? I would love to know!


  1. Well Christmas Eve we are making your homeade green bean cass! MMMMMMM

  2. I always make Naughty Crackers: 1 box Saltines, 1 cup vegetable oil, 1 tbsp red pepper flakes, 1 package dry Ranch dressing mix

    Line the crackers in a 9x13 dish with a lid. Mix all the other stuff together then drizzle that over the top and put the lid on it. Let the whole thing sit for about half and hour, then flip it over and let it sit for another 30 mins. Do this until all the oil mixture has been absorbed into the crackers.

    Trust me: if you like spicy snacks, this is perfect! But you might want to label to warn the not-spicy-lovers.

  3. Sausage balls are one of my all time favs. Give me some fresh warm sausage balls in a bowl and a football game, you won't be hearing from me for a while.

  4. are those the same sausage balls from Thanks cause those were better than any I have ever had!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
