If your friends and family are anything like mine, you’re going to have hungry mouths looking to snack big-time between meals. I mean, snacking on Christmas day is pretty much in the rule book.

My traditional Christmas day snacks when growing up were things like Chex Mix and cheese+crackers. And while those yummy pre-made snacks still make an appearance at my holiday gatherings, I like to even things out with delicious vegetarian nibbles for my family and guests that come from my kitchen – and from the heart. Luckily, ‘from the heart’ doesn’t have to equal difficult-to-make.

Hey, you can have both! You KNOW, I’ll be snacking on potato chips by the tree… between perfect bites of broccoli tots. Win/win!

Heck – the only thing you’ll have to worry about is your guests saving some room for Christmas dinner!
