With the holidays approaching quickly, we thought we’d put together the best holiday recipes for you to make for Santa. By now, we realize that Santa has to be tired of getting nothing but cookies and milk, especially if he never liked it in the first place If you don’t want to find coal in your stockings this year and want to leave Santa something a little extra sweet, you better be on your way to make these delicious treats.
Sweet and savory bites made with only seven ingredients. Plus, who said Santa didn’t like hors d’oeuvres?
The easiest, fuss-free fudge you’ve always dreamed of. Even if Santa doesn’t like chocolate, he’ll love this treat.
Santa may not be able to put presents under this tree, but he can sure pull apart this cheesy goodness and indulge in it.
Perhaps Santa’s a waffle lover after all. He was probably so busy in November that he wasn’t able to get his share of pumpkin spice.
Who doesn’t love a little twist on the ever-popular red velvet and classic cheesecake? Santa would love the holiday touch.
Each cookie is cute as a button. Maybe this’ll put you on the Nice list?

This banana cream pie is indeed decadent. Even better? You can leave just a slice or two for Santa and keep the rest for yourself.

A magic cake of three layers made from just one batter? You, too, can bring a little magic into Santa’s life.

He technically won’t be “drinking and driving” with this light and decadent Kahlua-infused cake, right? Besides, that’s what Rudolph’s for.
You know how you can’t just eat one Ritz cracker? Well, you also can’t just stop at one of these Rolo Ritz cookie sandwiches. Melted chocolate, gooey caramel and salty crispy crackers — even Santa will think they’re too good to pass on.
‘Cause ain’t nobody got time to wash dishes, especially if it’s 11 pm on Christmas Eve. No more excuses, dorm dwellers. Wait, no one should be in the dorms at this time. Now you really don’t have any excuses.
Whether the electricity rent is too high because your heater’s running 24/7, or because you’re just too damn lazy, this no-bake peanut butter and chocolate pie is probably the best thing to “bake” for Santa.
Why not try and give Santa a taste of fine dining? À la mode, perhaps?
Naughty or nice? Santa will have a hard time deciding which list to put this cocktail on.
What better than to let Santa indulge in a rich, cheesecake balanced with a blueberry reduction? Brownie points if you make the graham crust from scratch.

For a lighter, fruitier option, this will surely make Santa’s tastebuds tingle with delight. When life gives you lemon, turn them into a lemon meringue pie.
You didn’t think we’d leave out candy canes, did you? Not when it’s for Santa.

Happy holidays, everyone!
