Cherries Piled in Snow

We tried this fun kids' Christmas recipe from and loved it. It is easy and takes very little time to make.

  • 1 jar of green Maraschino cherries - a small jar will do
  • 1 package of chopped pecans - again, a small pack will do
  • 1/2 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1 container of whipped topping - thaw it


    In a mixing bowl, pour the cherry pie filling in and then add the green Maraschino cherries and stir. Add the pecans, marshmallows and fold in the whipped topping. Mix everything together, stirring well. Cover the dessert and put in the refrigerator. Serve cool.

    Here is another kids' Christmas recipe we tried and enjoyed.


  • 2 bags of popped popcorn
  • 1 bag of half sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of light corn syrup
  • 1 cup of butter


  • In a saucepan, combine the chocolate chips, corn syrup, and butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until melted.

  • Put the popcorn in a roasting pan and cook at 300 degrees F for about 30 minutes. Allow it to cool and put in a bowl that is lined with wax paper. This popcorn will stay fresh in an airtight container for about two weeks.

    Colorful Christmas Cookies

    Need more ideas for kids' Christmas recipes? Using Christmas cookie cutouts and making and decorating Christmas cookies is a great way to spend an afternoon with your children. You will need to purchase cookie cutout shapes as well as the ingredients for the cookies, frosting, and decorative items.

    Sugar Cookies


  • 1 cup of softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 2 3/4 cups of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

    Directions for this kids' Christmas recipe:

  • In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir.

  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together and then add the egg and vanilla and blend a little more. Add the dry ingredients and mix until it is the consistency of dough.

  • Roll the dough out on a clean, flat surface and use your cookie cutters to create shaped cookies. Place them on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 3 to 10 minutes or until light brown.



  • 2 cups of confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • Food coloring, optional
  • Sprinkles, optional


  • Combine the confectioners' sugar and butter in a bowl until very smooth. Add the milk and vanilla and mix with an electric mixer. This may take a few minutes. You can separate the frosting into different bowls and add food coloring.

  • Decorate the sugar cookies as you'd like and add sprinkles for that extra touch.

    And there you have it. We hope you and your children enjoy these kids' Christmas recipes!
