It doesn’t necessarily feel like it’s time for Christmas/Hannukah yet. I just finished my finals, it’s 55 degrees with no snow in sight, and the only sign of Christmas in my apartment is the worlds tiniest fake christmas tree in the windowsill (but I must add that it sits there all year round). But, shopping for gifts has gotten me in the christmas spirit, so when I got home from my last exam today, I decided to whip up something easy and festive.
I’m not going to say these are “healthy” per-say…but you can do a lot worse when it comes to holiday treats. These also happened to be one of the easiest things EVER to make. No baking, only 3 ingredients. I just melted some dark chocolate (hey that’s healthy, right?), and decorated with pomegranate seeds (antioxidants, yay!) and green frosting to make little wreaths and holly. I also added pretzel antlers to some and made little reindeer. That evil looking one in the middle below is definitely the one that was mean to poor rudolph…
And if you want another awesome simple idea, check out my santa hat brownies from last year
- 1/2 lb dark chocolate (bars or chips are fine)
- seeds from 1 pomegranate
- store bought green icing
- (and broken pretzels if you want to make reindeer)
