Vegan Christmas Melties

Pin It!

Guess what was on tv last night…Elf!!

Hey, it’s December. It’s okay to get into the Christmas spirit now, right?

Since I was feeling Christmas-y while watching the movie, I took two minutes (seriously, that’s how little time it takes!), to make Christmas Coconut Melties.

I also bought one with Scotties! Imagine: Molly will soon be chocolate-covered! :)

I curled up on the couch and ate my yummy melties, as I watched the guy above eat something not so yummy.

  1. Coconut melties- YUM! Elf is clearly my favorite movie. :)

  2. Lisa C. says:

    Those are so cute! I’m going to have to get up to my local Michaels and look for some of those chocolate molds :). I need some Christmas melties in my life!

  3. Camille says:

    SANTA!!! I know him! :)
    I have 2 favorite Christmas movies. It is tradition that one is to be watched on Christmas Eve and one on Christmas day. Christmas Eve=It’s a Wonderful Life. Christmas Day= A Christmas Story
    Not only are they my two favorite Christmas movies, they are two of my all-time favorite movies!

  4. Tori says:

    “The Grinch” with Jim Carey. Don’t even need to think about it! I’ve watched it so many times, I’ve memorized most of the lines! It’s so funny, if you haven’t seen it, you should watch it!

  5. Sarahishealthy says:

    I love Elf! It’s one of my top five favorite movies, Christmas or otherwise. I can only bet it was extra awesome when you added the coconut butter melties! Artisana coconut butter makes everything better. You taught me that.

  6. Leslie says:

    How could you leave “A Christmas Story” off that list??? 😉

    1. LOL I’ve actually never seen the whole thing!

      1. What??? That’s definitely my favorite Christmas movie. You need to check out TBS any time during Christmas day. They show it for 24 hours straight!

        1. LOL ok maybe this’ll be the year!

  7. Albizia says:

    Oh, the melties are so pretty!

    I think I can watch the first two parts of “Home Alone” every single Christmas. I also love “Miracle on 34th Street” (version 1994), “Four Christmases”, “You’ve Got Mail”, “Christmas Every Day”, “The Polar Express”, “Jack Frost”, “Jingle All The Way”… and pretty much every movie with snow and Christmas trees in it :) .

    1. Can’t believe I forgot Miracle on 34th Street. I love that one… the old version :).

  8. eatandrun says:

    Elf is the best Christmas movie!

  9. Inspired says:

    I have to agree that Elf is pretty good. But I’m also a sucker for the oldies like White Christmas and Holiday Inn :).

  10. I looove Elf but I also love the Grinch movie with Jim Carrey! I can’t wait to start in on my Christmas movies!

  11. Sarah says:

    I’m going to have to go with the Grinch. But I’ve never seen the Jim Carrey version. I like the cartoon. We always watch it on Christmas day, right before dinner :).

  12. Eric Jaffa says:

    I also like “Elf,” “It’s a Wonderful Life,” and “The Santa Clause.”

    Also “Holiday Inn” with Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby. It introduced the song “White Christmas.” But it’s debatable whether is has enough of a Christmas-theme to be a Christmas movie. A lot of holidays are included in “Holiday Inn.”

  13. The ones you mention are some of my favorites too! I’d also add A Christmas Story and the original Grinch cartoon.

  14. Ann Claire says:

    I love Elf! I watched it last weekend. It wasn’t techinically December, but it was after Thanksgiving so I thought it was okay :) It’s definitely one of my favorite Christmas movies, I love White Christmas too.

  15. Cynthia says:

    I love Home Alone and A Christmas Story!

  16. abby says:

    i am obsessed with those melties! my favorite is the maple version, and i’ve been meaning to try maple-peanut butter too :).

  17. A Christmas Story is my favorite!

  18. Oh God, those are adorable!!! They put an insta smile on my face.

  19. love, actually is one of my favorites!! although i’m jewish, I find great joy and comfort from all the holiday happenings :)

    1. Ack! I should’ve said “favorite holiday movies” 😉 :)

  20. kathleen says:

    was love actually set during christmas? it’s been a few years since i’ve seen it.

  21. Selina says:

    Love Actually is Great!! And so is Elf. I own both and you’ve inspired me to hunker down and watch one. Or maybe I’ll go for How the Grinch Stole Christmas….

  22. Home Alone 1&2, The Christmas Caper, Olive the Other Reindeer, and Miracle on 34th Street!

  23. VEGirl says:

    We watched Elf the other night, our first Christmas movie of the season!

    “Buddy the elf, what’s your favorite color?”
    “Congratulations, world’s best cup of coffee! Great to be here”

    Just a couple of quotes I use all year long 😉 Certainly one of my favorite movies eva! Makes me laugh and get into the spirit of it all.

    1. We elves like to stick to the four food groups. Candy, candy canes, candy corn, and SYRUP! :)

      1. VEGirl says:

        “Syrup in coffee? Why didn’t I think of that?!”


  24. HOW ADORABLE!!!!! I bet they would be really good with a little peppermint extract in them….candy cane melties!!!

    I LOVE Elf!!!! I didn’t know it was on last night! What channel? I watched the POlar Express on ABC-another favorite. There are so many good Christmas movies, Katie! How can you be so evil and make me choose a favorite??? Hehe…

    1. Haha yeah I cant choose a favorite either! How come there aren’t this many regular good movies?!?

      1. Yeah, Really! The cable company needs to figure that out and spread out the movies throughout the year 😉

        Christmas in July! Christmas in February! Christmas in September…

  25. Molly says:

    I can’t wait to make these tonight after I get done Christmas Shopping! I love love lurve the movie Elf. Merry Christmas Katie!

    P.S. When you mentioned Molly getting chocolate covered, I was a bit confused. And then I remembered your dog and I share a name :)

    1. hey, I could cover you in chocolate if you want… :)
      Life is better covered in chocolate!

  26. Mimi says:

    Elf is my all-time FAVORITE Christmas movie!

  27. I’m really not much of a Christmas movie type of person, but there are two things that I watch every year: The Grinch (cartoon version from the 50s) and The Grinch (movie with Jim Carrey). I love them both!

  28. hahaha SANTTAAAA!!!!!!! 😀 I remember watching that movie a few years ago (believe me, it’s been seen many MANY times since then) but thinking how weird it was that he likes maple syrup with everything. ..and well, now I do the same. 😛 Buddy’s got the right idea 😉

    1. I know, right?! I even tried it on pasta after seeing the movie for the first time :).

  29. Elf is soooooo cute!!!!!! and those melties look yummy, and adorable too! gotta love cute food that tastes good! =D

  30. Elf is my favorite holiday movie! I love when he says “You smell like beef and cheese – you’re not really Santa!.” HAHAHA!

  31. Lindsey says:

    I think my favorite is White Christmas. It’s such a classic! Every time I watch it I wish I could experience Christmas during that time. :)

  32. dragonmamma/naomi says:

    Die Hard (yes, that takes place at a Christmas party) and Christmas Story. What, nobody has said Nightmare Before Christmas?

    I also love just about any version of A Christmas Carol, particularly the old versions with Reginald Owen or Alistair Sim or Mr. Magoo!

    1. I looove Nightmare… but I usually watch it around Halloween :). And the Alistair Sim Christmas Carol is awesome too. You have good taste :).

  33. Those Christmas Melties look lovely! :) Favourite holiday film – Love, Actually.

  34. Namaste Gurl says:

    Can you make me some holiday melties– please,please,please?!? :)
    Guess I’ll just have to make some for myself….
    I was just about to ask, “Michael’s, Beverly’s…. what craft store”? Until I saw that you got them from Micheal’s. Creative call, miss Katie.

    Enjoy your evening with more melties :)

    1. Yes! I’m comin’ over right now! 😉
      Then I’d get to meet you… AND be in California!

  35. I love Elf!!! It makes me cry at the end.

    I also love the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer TV special. Looooove it.

    And Jingle All the Way with Arnold Schwarzenegger. It’s hilarious!

  36. Fi says:

    i watched “the santa clause” tonight :)
    also LOVE “elf”, the grinch and love actually too. we always watch lord o the rings at xmas tho-dunno why?! xxx

    1. Maybe because it’s magic?? lol we watch Harry Potter, so I see where you’re coming from! :)

  37. Rachael says:

    I could lose major street cred in my house for admitting this, but I’m a sucker for “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Love, Actually”. Though I do make fun of the whole “every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings” quote whenever the opportunity arises. Christmas movies at Christmas time seem much less cheesy than at other points of the year!

  38. xmas movies? gosh so long ago i cant even remember what the last one i watched was. we’re talking at least 20 yrs here :)

    love the melties. and that last post..muah! still loving the honesty there! :)

  39. Claire says:

    Best Christmas films would have to be Love Actually, it’s simply wonderful. During Christmas we also watch The Vicar Of Dibley (also by Richard Curtis) and The Good Life. Having Grown up in the UK these were always shown on TV during December so it’s somewhat of a family tradition to break them out during the Christmas break.
    Alway, time to start gift shopping now – this could take some time 😛

    1. I’ve never heard of those, so I’ll definitely have to look for them. Who doesn’t want to watch more Christmas movies?? :)

  40. Your melties are so cute! I’m definitely going to have to make some of my own for christmas.. I even have the santa mold already! My favorite christmas movies are it’s a wonderful life, Love Actually, and Elf. Oh and of course a Charlie Brown Christmas!

  41. lindsay says:

    such a good present! I love easy to make christmas gifts that are just deilicous!
    Hope you had some hot cocoa to go with it. :)

    1. Darn it, why didn’t I think of that?! Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to have a repeat night 😉

  42. I am going to have to get some cute molds to make melties in! They are adorable. I love Elf and Love, actually as well. Others I like are Miracle on 34th Street (an oldie, but a goodie) & Four Christmas’ – so funny!

    1. Oh and I can’t believe I forgot one of my favorite holiday movies – “Serendipity”! If you haven’t seen it, I HIGHLY recommend it!

  43. I love home alone and christmas vacation!

  44. Moni'sMeals says:

    Those melties are adorable!

    I love all the movies you said too but also The Holiday!

    BTW, The Shower idea was such a good one… You are so thoughtful.


    1. Oooh yeah, The Holiday! I forgot about that one. I’ll have to pull it out. Thanks, miss Monica :).

  45. Those look so cute! I should make some for my son.
    I LOVE “Elf”. We watch it every year while we decorate the tree. It’s become a tradition!

  46. Ashlei says:

    Elf is definitely one of my favorite Christmas movies too. Will Ferrell is hilarious!

  47. Anonymous says:

    I love pretty much all Christmas movies too–just watched Elf this evening, in fact. “DID YOU HEAR THAT?!” Gotta love burp jokes.

  48. Wow, we share the EXACT SAME favorite xmas movies – crazy! Or maybe we just have good taste. :)
