8 easy to bake snacks to get you in the Christmas spirit

With Christmas just around the corner, it is the perfect time to do some baking to get you into the mood. If you are having friends over for Christmas Eve nibbles or making some cute edible gifts, we have eight recipes that are sure to get you into the festive spirit.

If you are gluten-free or vegan, you can still join in the festivities. Many supermarkets now carry the basics, such as vegan butter. So, hop to the kitchen and participate in the bake-off!

Santa hat brownies is a lovely simple recipe that can be altered to suit anyone's taste. 

Whip up a batch of brownies (if you're short on time, a packet mix will do), add any ingredients to personalise them how you like and decorate with cream and strawberries to look like little Santa Hats.

Love them or hate this, this is truly a Christmas staple, and you cannot beat homemade. 

The mix of festive spices makes you feel warm and fuzzy when cosied up on the sofa with a mulled wine. 

Top tip to make the recipe if you're in a rush, you can use ready-rolled pastry instead of making your own.
