We love the classic Christmas movies in our home. I love watching the old animated movies from when I was young. I wanted to hold a Santa Claus is Coming To Town Movie Night. I decided I wanted some healthy snacks in addition to the traditional hot cocoa and cookies. I saw pictures of these little Santa and penguin appetizers and decided to give them a try.

Of course, it wouldn’t be movie night without a treat too! Be sure to whip up a batch of Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix and your favorite Christmas desserts. Here are some to get you started!
