Cookies Inspired by Classic Christmas Movies

You can't watch a movie without snacks -- but for these Christmas classics, skip the popcorn and bake cookies instead! Whip up a couple batches of these adorable cookies for the ultimate holiday movie marathon.

Rudolph Delights

Rudolph would be delighted to know that he inspired these adorable reindeer cookies. Make these cookies to show your support for Rudolph and his friends, Hermey the elf and Yukon Cornelius, as they travel throughout the North Pole in "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."

Jelly-of-the-Month Cookies

These jelly-covered cookies are just one way that Clark Griswold could put his unwanted jelly-of-the-month club membership to good use. Fortunately, you don't need a jelly subscription to make these cookies. Just get your favorite jelly flavor ready and munch on these cookies while watching "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."

Grumpy Grinchy Marshmallow Treats

Don't be a Grinch -- have these treats ready for your next viewing of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." Even though Mr. Grinch's heart was three sizes too small, you can make the frosting hearts on these green treats as big as you want.

Candy Cane Elfwiches

Buddy the Elf loves candy canes -- they're one of the four main food groups, after all -- and we do, too! These red-and-white striped elfwiches with a creamy peppermint filling are the perfect snack for watching "Elf" and cheering on Buddy as he navigates the real world.

Angel Wings

Every time a bell rings, we start craving these yummy angel wing cookies. Just like guardian angel Clarence was able to help George Bailey get back on track on Christmas Eve, these cookies will help keep your movie marathon on track as you power through "It's a Wonderful Life."

'Peanuts' Butter Cookies

Even though Charlie Brown had a hard time finding his holiday spirit, having these cookies handy will help you get in the mood for "A Charlie Brown Christmas." Pipe a zigzag of chocolate frosting across these peanut butter cookies to make them look just like Charlie Brown's favorite yellow shirt.

Milk Chocolate Stocking Brownies

Do these brownies remind you of anything? Maybe a certain leg lamp wearing fishnet stockings? Even though Ralphie's mother didn't want him anywhere near his old man's "major award," these brownies are a fine substitute. Be sure to have a batch ready the next time you watch "A Christmas Story."
