Caroling is a special holiday tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation. Whether you prefer to sing holiday classics or contemporary favorites or contemporary favorites as a holiday caroler, caroling is a great excuse to enjoy your neighborhood’s beautiful decorations, while spending time with your family and friends. Make sure to keep your strength up this season by bringing along a couple of these festive, easy-to-make snacks featuring Hickory Farms gourmet fruits and nuts.
For a fun contrast in flavors and textures for your holiday snacks, put together a simple, yet delicious popcorn snack mix. Start by popping a bag of microwave popcorn. Then, mix it into a salted caramel sauce. Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet and cook for five minutes. Finish the caramel popcorn by adding chocolate-covered peanuts from our Sweet & Salty Nut Sampler.
Make a quick and easy snack for a crunchy dessert in just minutes with chocolate-covered graham crackers. Simply melt wafers in a double broiler, and then toss in the crackers to coat. Before the chocolate hardens, quickly sprinkle the cracker with roughly chopped nuts from the Our Finest Mixed Nuts Gift Tin.
If you love baking and simple snack ideas, delight your lucky carolers with a nutty play on a traditional macaroon. Make your macaroon batter as normal, but add a little something extra special with ground pistachios from our Grand Nut Party Assortment Gift Tin. Place the batter in a piping bag, form the cookies and bake. After they’ve cooled, sandwich the macaroons with chocolate ganache and another sprinkle of pistachio.
For a treat that’s even simpler to prepare, pack a gourmet fruits and nuts snack. Starting with our Dried Fruit Collection, place a selection of white peaches, mangoes, apricots, and almonds on a baking sheet. Heat the fruits and nuts in an oven for five minutes, and enjoy while still warm from the oven.
With these easy-to-make snacks featuring our Hickory Farms’ Fruits & Nuts line, you can make sure your holiday carolers enjoy a special evening that will create lasting memories for years to come.
