The holiday season is here and that means Christmas treats and snacks! Sometimes it can be difficult to maintain a healthy appetite when there are Christmas cookies, candy canes, and peppermint bark tempting you at every grocery store.

However, here are six easy and healthy holiday-themed snacks that are perfect for Christmas parties, family gatherings, or just a fun treat for yourself. In addition, I tried out all of these treats myself and I can say that these are super quick and easy to make and do not require any cooking experience.

In addition, all of these snacks are very customizable, as it’s easy to substitute or change any ingredient so that the snack is to your liking.

Now, here are the 6 holiday-themed snacks:

1. Santa Claus Crackers – This snack would be a perfect appetizer for a holiday party. Plus they are very healthy and super cute.
