7 Iconic Foods From Christmas Movies

Nothing rings in the Christmas season like watching classic holiday films you've already seen a million times. Sure, you're viewing them on Netflix now instead of those historical artifacts known as VHS tapes, but your memories, fervor, and passion remain the same.

For us, however, the fondest memories revolve not around the catchy musical numbers or heartwarming moral lessons, but around (of course) the food. The festive treats consumed in our favorite Christmas films are truly irresistible, and we've been craving their real-life counterparts since we were kids.

Something tells us we're not alone on this. So join us in lusting over the fictional food and drinks that make our holiday films so beloved, and maybe make a few holiday treats of your own this year.

The Santa Clause: Judy the Elf's hot cocoa

This hot cocoa is deemed good enough for Santa himself, and it took Judy the Elf only 1,200 years to get right! "Not too hot. Extra chocolate. Shaken, not stirred," as she says. It sounds exquisite, and for years, we've wanted a large mug of it.

While no one could truly replicate Judy's tasty hot chocolate, this Ginger Hot Chocolate recipe will still hit the spot.

Elf: The maple syrup breakfast spaghetti

Okay, yes, it's kind of gross. But if you're not curious about what that bowl of sugar tastes like, you're lying to yourself.

Want something inspired by this meal? Try our "Elf" Maple Syrup Tomato Sauce recipe.

Home Alone: The mac and cheese AND the epic ice cream sundae

Every kid wishes they'd get left alone at some point, just so they could eat anything they wanted without Mom's approval. A "highly nutritious microwavable macaroni and cheese dinner" and a room-service sundae top our list.

Next time you watch "Home Alone," make this Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese recipe or our Ultimate Sundae recipe.

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas: The roast beast

We're not exactly sure what it is, but the Grinch himself carved it, and that's good enough for us.

While we wait for someone to come up with the recipe for the iconic roast beast, try this Air Fryer Roast Beef recipe for a tasty holiday dinner.

The Polar Express: More hot chocolate

Say what you will about the Tom Hanks-starring cinematic version of this classic book, but the hot chocolate available on the Polar Express still looks delicious. We'd like one steaming cup and our Christmas bell, please.

Before you watch "The Polar Express," make this Hot Chocolate Bombs recipe and enjoy your own hot cocoa during the movie.

The Family Stone: The breakfast strata Sarah Jessica Parker spills on the kitchen floor

Maybe a bit of an obscure reference, but we can't be the only ones who thought that cheesy egg strata was gonna be really great before she dropped it all over herself in the middle of a family meltdown.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: Whatever it was that Mrs. Claus made for her skinny Santa

"Eat, Papa! Eat."

We bet Santa would give these Classic Christmas Dessert recipes a try.
