25 Family Christmas Movies and the Best Snacks to Eat with Them

Here are some Christmas movies that the whole family may enjoy, along with some delicious snacks to munch on while we wait for Christmas to arrive!

This entertaining collection will help you make this Christmas more memorable, whether you watch one every night or choose a couple of your favorites to watch here and there during the season.

Consider these snack suggestions for the films on the list:

  • Charlie Brown’s Christmas: Try this one by tasting some candy canes. This Chewy Chex Mix is a handmade delicacy that is guaranteed to please even the pickiest eater.
  • The Christmas Chronicles: Snatch yourself a package of these delicious peppermint white chocolate pretzel snacks.
  • Home alone: Gummy pizzas would be a delightful, entertaining treat to savor while watching this classic holiday film. Alternatively, you may watch a movie with supper and pizza for entertainment.
  • Miracle on 34th Street!: Here’s a snack idea! Since they don’t consume many sweets throughout the film, I believe it’s the ideal choice for the treat game. Arrange bowls filled with various Christmas candies, such as M&Ms, Skittles, or gummies, among the little items. Choose a few words, such as “mother,” “believe,” or “Santa,” and let the youngsters know that they may choose a goodie each time they hear those words.
  • Muppet’s Christmas carol: Make some unique Christmas marshmallow caramel corn with this idea.
  • The Santa Clause II: Pretend it’s reindeer chow by combining some of your kids’ favorite sugary cereals with Christmas M&Ms. Alternatively, prepare this Ultimate Chewy Chex Mix.
  • Little women: For this one, people, think retro candies!
  • The star: Starmix Gummi Candy is a gummy mix that Haribo manufactures.
  • The Christmas Chronicles II: Perfect snack options would be homemade fudge or caramel corn puffs!
  • The Nutcracker and the four realms: The idea for a Snack: Nuts without shells, such as macadamia, pecan, or walnuts, and a nutcracker.
  • Arthur’s Christmas: Snack Idea: Since the movie centers on a computer malfunction, gather your favorite nerd candies and hope Arthur can resolve the issue in time for the holiday season!
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas: Are there any Halloween sweets left in the back of your cupboard? It’s the ideal snack for this entertaining film!
  • Elf: A beloved film in our household! Buddy’s spaghetti-making method always makes us giggle. Instead of having noodles and chocolate sauce for a snack, grab some M&Ms, candy corn, marshmallows, and Chocolate Fudge Pop-Tarts.
  • Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer: For this one, instead of a snack, put together these adorable and simple Reindeer Pancakes for supper, and enjoy them before or as you watch the snowfall.
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas: Prepare some Rice Krispy treats and add some green food coloring to the mixture before incorporating the Rice Krispies! For a greener option, try these delicious green Jello Sugar Cookies.
  • Klaus: Watch this brand-new Christmas film while sipping hot chocolate. Stephen’s Hot Chocolate is our preferred hot chocolate.
  • Olaf’s Frozen Adventure: Choose the Christmas treat that everyone in the house always looks forward to and prepare it for this film. Gingerbread Cake and Merry Widow Caramels are two of our favorite customs.
  • A Christmas carol: Money, money, money! For an added excitement factor, try to locate some gold chocolate coins for your movie snack.
  • A Christmas story: Snack Idea: It would be hilarious to do something with sprinkles that resemble BBs! There’s also a hilarious gummy tongue that you can all share and chop up!
  • Jingle all the way: Our go-to Christmas cookie recipes include the classic Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, Holiday Snowball Cookies, and Chewy Gingersnap Cookies.
  • White Christmas: For this one, use white sweets. Any white delicacy you can find, such as marshmallows, eggnog, snowball cookies, white hot chocolate, and raisins coated in yogurt.
  • Frosty the snowman: You can think you’re someplace warm even if Frosty needs to flee the warm weather. These are wonderful and very simple Pina Coladas!
  • The Santa clause: For this one, look for some chocolate Santa’s or candy with a Christmas motif.
