Good morning! Did you get your shopping finished yesterday at the big online sales? I did a little shopping but to be honest it was for myself since I am already finished with my Christmas list.
Over the next few weeks many of us will be hosting, or attending holiday parties and in my world dessert is the most important food at a party. I love sweet treats and whether I am hosting or attending I always make sure to have plenty of sweet treats for the guests.
I bake all of the cookies and candies I serve using a mix of family favorites and a few new recipes. Lately I have received a lot of email from people telling me they don’t bake, don’t know how to bake or don’t like to bake so I thought I would make a dessert that anyone can make.
I settled on a candy and cookie board, the best part is that it is as easy as gathering your favorite sweet treats and assembling them on a tray. All of the treats came from Lidl, Aldi, the Dollar Tree and my local market.
Holiday Candy & Cookie Board
Get a large tray or cutting board, and a few small bowls or paper liners. Unwrap all candy and cookies and place on board in a decorative manner. This is the easy part, simply layer the cookies around the board, add a few small bowls of candy and you have the perfect dessert tray.
You can serve this tray at your party, take one to a friend, have a candy and cookie champagne party with your friends while wrapping gifts, or even serve one on Christmas day while watching movies.
This tray can also be made with homemade treats and candy or a combination of homemade and purchased treats. However you choose to make it I am sure that your guests will love it.
Make sure to get a few celophane bags so that you can bag up the leftovers for your guests to take home.
Have a great day!
