December is here and let the bombardment of Christmas everything flood everywhere and let the Christmas videos begin! So this is our first Christmas @ Chewie Chews. We have been VLOG-ing for a little over two months and I am really loving it so far. My halloween platter video for Chewie Chews standards did quite well, and it would be silly of me not to do one for Christmas. So I scoured Pinterest to inspire my list of Quickest and Easiest Healthy Christmas Treats. These treats are a such a sinch to make and are so cute. These four treat ideas are light and are not overly sweetened; perfect for the kids and fun adults. I am talking to you. You are reading this post – you must be a fun adult!

I list my top four picks for the quickest and easiest healthy Christmas treats below and learn how to make them in the video above and how to put them together in a lovely platter. These will surely bring a smile to your family and guests this holiday season.
