The Christmas season is amazing for so many reasons. We get to spend time with our closest friends and family, indulge in delicious holiday meals, give and receive thoughtful gifts and watch all the cheesy Christmas movies we can handle.

Of course, we already have these brand-new movies from Hallmark on our list. Now Netflix has announced its holiday lineup, too!

What Are the Best New Christmas Movies on Netflix?

The full list of Netflix Christmas movies includes 17 new titles and we could not be more excited. While we hope they also bring back the classics from previous years, there’s nothing quite like finding a whole new plot to get lost in.

While each movie has its own holiday merit, I already have a few favorites on my must-watch list. At the top is Dash & Lily, a young adult novel series adaptation that follows two young people through the city of New York while they trade a notebook of personal truths and dares between them at various locations. It’s sweet, whimsical and full of that unique holiday romance. It’s set to premiere on November 10.

Another movie I’m looking forward to is Holidate, starring Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey, two strangers who make a pact to be each other’s “holiday date” for all relevant parties and get-togethers. It’s the perfect set up for all you rom-com lovers out there. Yeah, we might know exactly how it’s going to end, but…we just can’t help ourselves! Look for Holidate to premiere October 28.

The Best Snacks for Your Netflix Marathon

Chocolaty Chips

My two little guys can’t get enough of this sweet-and-salty snack, which uses just three ingredients and is ready to eat in 15 minutes. The boys like to drizzle on the melted chocolate, too. Sometimes we replace the potato chips with apple slices. —Jami Geittmann, Greendale, Wisconsin Get Recipe

Nacho Tots

This is an easy, versatile party appetizer that everyone loves. If you can’t find chorizo, ground beef or ground chicken are wonderful, too. Top with anything you like! —Connie Krupp, Racine, Wisconsin

Super Chunky Cookies

Chocolate lovers will go crazy over these cookies that feature loads of chocolate! When friends ask me to make “those cookies,” I know exactly what recipe they mean. —Rebecca Jendry, Spring Branch, Texas

Loaded Baked Potato Rounds

I was trying to create an appetizer that could be served at my teenaged daughters birthday party that the kids would love but that would appear elegant enough for the adults to be interested as well. These are made with simple ingredients yet yield a sophisticated result. Feel free to get creative with the flavors. Try shredded white cheddar in place of mozzarella or thyme instead of the rosemary. Take it up another notch by topping the rounds with smoked fish. —Amanda Digges, South Windsor, Connecticut

Courtside Caramel Corn

My guests say they can’t stop eating my caramel corn! For our basketball party I fix enough to fill a big red tin with our team’s logo. The delectable syrup coats the popcorn well but isn’t sticky. —Sharon Landeen, Tucson, Arizona

Santa Fe Chicken Pizza Pie

Give your pie a Southwest twist when you slather on the taco sauce and top with black beans, green chilies and kicked-up chicken strips. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Favorite Banana Split Smoothies

I try to get as many fruits and veggies into our menus as possible. A smoothie is a great way to load up on nutrients. This banana one is a favorite! —Tiffany Van Zee, Pella, Iowa

My husband and our friends and family love these soft, chewy pretzels. Let the bread machine mix the dough, then all you have to do is shape and bake these fun snacks. —Sherry Peterson, Fort Collins, Colorado

This fun dip recipe uses ingredients I always have in the fridge, so it’s easy to throw together on short notice. —Cindi DeClue, Anchorage, Alaska

Popcorn Cookies

It’s so much fun to surprise people with the crushed popcorn in these yummy cookies. They’re definitely a distinctive cookie on the holiday tray.—Leigh Anne Preston, Palmyra, Indiana

Fruit and Cheese Board

Who says cheese and sausage get to have all the fun? Make this a party go-to with any fruits that are in season. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Apple-Gouda Pigs in a Blanket

For New Year’s, I used to make beef and cheddar pigs in a blanket, but now I like apple and Gouda for an even better flavor celebration. —Megan Weiss, Menomonie, Wisconsin

It’s-It Ice Cream Sandwiches

Pretzel Bread Bowl with Cheese Dip

Our town is known as Pretzel City—even our local sports teams are known as The Pretzels. I came up with this recipe for an annual local recipe contest. People couldn’t believe that this delicious bread had pretzels in the mix! For variety, try using different flavors of pretzels. —Andrea Johnson, Freeport, Illinois

Mustard Pretzel Nuggets

This quick and fun snack is similar to the mustard pretzels you can buy at the store, but you can make it for a fraction of the price. It’s a killer recipe for all kinds of parties and football gatherings. —Sarah Mathews, Ava Missouri

Chunky Banana Cream Freeze

Everyone loves ice cream, but we all know it doesn’t make a great after-school snack. Until this! With its sweet banana-almond flavor and chunky texture, this appealing banana peanut butter “ice cream” is a crowd-pleaser. People who ask me for the recipe can’t believe how easy it is to make. —Kristen Bloom, Okinawa, Japan

Easy Strawberry Salsa

My salsa is sweet and colorful, with just a little bit of a bite from jalapeno peppers. I use fresh strawberries and my own home-grown vegetables, but you can also use produce available year round. It’s delicious with tortilla chips or even as a garnish to grill chicken or pork. — Dianna Wara, Washington, Illinois

Oatmeal Molasses Crisps

In Amish and Mennonite homes, home cooking is guaranteed delicious. So when I found this recipe in an Amish cookbook, I knew I had to try it. It’s become a favorite of our family as well as the folks at our church fellowship. —Jori Schellenberger, Everett, Washington

Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Pizza

I bring together two all-time favorites with this recipe: pizza and BLT sandwiches. I brought this fun mashup to a ladies lunch and was met with “oohs” and “ahhs.” —Bonnie Hawkins, Elkhorn, Wisconsin

Deep-Fried Mac & Cheese Shells

I created this deep-friend mac and cheese recipe for my husband, who loves mac & cheese. He describes this recipe as “unbelievably delicious” because of the crispy deep-fried coating and the creamy richness on the inside. —Shirley Rickis, Lady Lake, Florida

Cherry Chocolate Chunk Cookies

These rich, fudgy cookies are chewy and studded with tangy dried cherries. It’s a good thing the recipe makes only a small batch, because we eat them all in one night! —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

Marshmallow-Peanut Popcorn

My brother calls this combo of popcorn, marshmallows, peanuts and pretzels the “perfect popcorn.” The taste is reminiscent of a Big Hunk candy bar. —Julie Perez, Idaho Falls, Idaho

BBQ Chicken Waffle Fries

This is one of those dishes that sounds so wrong but tastes so right! Trust me—barbecue chicken leftovers are fantastic with the fries. We like it with lettuce, tomato and pickle, but you can add almost any toppings you like. —Janet Telleen, Russell, Iowa

Wyoming Whopper Cookies

These big country cookies are made to travel—in fact, I came up with this recipe while trying to match a commercial cookie that was good, but too crumbly to carry. —Jamie Hirsch, Powell, Wyoming

 

California Dream Smoothie

It’s sunshine in a smoothie! This one’s a true California treat, sweet and tangy from start to finish. —Sonya Labbe, West Hollywood, California

No-Bake Cornflake Cookies

I grew up on a farm where we hand-milked cows and had plenty of milk and cream to use for cooking. Sometimes we’d substitute light cream for the evaporated milk in this recipe. We’d rarely let these cookies cool before sampling them, and a batch never lasted a day! —Denise Marnell, Hereford, Texas

Roasted Fresh Pumpkin Seeds

I learned how to roast pumpkin seeds from my mother, who learned it from her mother. Keep an eye on the seeds so they don’t scorch. —Margaret Drye, Plainfield, New Hampshire

Sugar Cookies

This sugar cookie dates back to a Swedish woman born in 1877! Her daughter, Esther Davis, shared the recipe with me and she came up with all the exact measurements, since the original cookies were mixed by feel and taste. These are my favorite cookies and I hope they’ll become yours as well. —Helen Wallis, Vancouver, Washington

Waffle Fry Nachos

My husband and two grown sons really enjoy these fun nachos—they can devour a platter of them in no time. They’re also fun to make when friends come over. —Debra Morgan, Idaho Falls, Idaho

Garlic-Cheese Flat Bread

Unless you plan to make two, don’t count on leftovers. As an appetizer or side, this cheesy flatbread will be devoured in less time than it takes to bake. And that’s not long! —Suzanne Zick, Maiden, North Carolina

Bananas Foster Crunch Mix

Bananas Foster is one of my favorite desserts. So I thought that a crunchy, snackable version would be a hit. It is heated in the microwave and takes just a few minutes to make. —David Dahlman, Chatsworth, California

Creamy Taco Dip

You’ll know this snack is a hit at your next gathering when you come home with an empty pan! —Denise Smith, Lusk, Wyoming

Ginger-Maple Roasted Pecans

Thick Strawberry Shakes

Cool off with a thick and rich treat that will remind you of a malt shoppe! Nothing can beat this strawberry shake recipe. —Kathryn Conrad, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Lick-the-Bowl-Clean Hummus

Everyone loves hummus, but I enjoy the garlic and onion types so much that I decided to let them shine in this homemade version. I get so many compliments when I serve it! —Sarah Gilbert, Beaverton, Oregon

Chunky Mango Guacamole

When serving a crowd, double or quadruple this guacamole. The onion, tomato and mango can be chopped in advance. Add avocado just before serving. —Diana Nienberg, McComb, Ohio

Brownie Batter Dip

I’m all about the sweeter side of dips, and this brownie-batter variety fits in with my life’s philosophy: Chocolate makes anything better. Grab some fruit, cookies or salty snacks and start dunking. —Mel Gunnell, Boise, Idaho

Chili-Lime Snack Mix

Why buy a pricey bagged snack mix when you can easily make a better-tasting one at home? Create a Southwestern sensation with chili powder, cayenne pepper and a twist of lime. —Julie Beckwith, Crete, Illinois

Hot Buttered Rum Party Mix

A spicy mix of crisp cereal, soft marshmallows and rum extract make this a delicious treat to nosh on with friends, while studying or when watching a movie. —Susan Tite, China, Michigan

Cheddar cheese, red peppers and pitted ripe olives make a tasty, rustic appetizer when marinated overnight and served with decorative toothpicks. —Polly Brunning, Thaxton, Virginia

Chutney-Topped Cream Cheese Spread

I’ve had the pleasure of introducing many of my friends and family to chutney, that sweet and savory fruit sauce. Make the spread even faster by using chive-flavored whipped cream cheese. —Michelle Torkelson, Ham Lake, Minnesota

Nacho Popcorn

My husband and I like to munch on this while watching TV. The nacho flavoring is a zesty alternative to butter and salt. —Linda Boehme, Fairmont, Minnesota
