While cookies seem like the easiest holiday recipe to make with kids, you can recruit them for some of the savory dishes too. Find the easiest, least dangerous task within any recipe and set the little tike to work. Children will be more likely to eat the dish if they helped make it. You can craft these Eggnog Popcorn Balls in a more basic way or go with all the recommended flavors and nuts, depending on your kid's taste. Why not throw some red and green candies in there too? As the recipe goes, the classic holiday treat is flavored with vanilla, nutmeg, and pecans. Get even more Christmas-style recipes.
