Vegan Christmas Melties

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.

    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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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 🙂 .

  5. 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 :).

  6. 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.”

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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 🙂

  10. 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!

  11. Embodying Freedom says

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

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

  14. 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….

  15. [email protected] of Sugar Free says

    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…

  16. 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

  17. Mary @ Bites and Bliss says

    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 😉

  18. 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 🙂

  19. 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 😛

  20. 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!

  21. jodye @ 'scend food says

    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!

  22. Averie (LoveVeggiesandYoga) says

    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! 🙂

  23. 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.

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