    Anybody have any ideas for what they are putting on their Christmas Goodie Trays this year?
    I am starting to think about what I am doing. So far, Rolo Pretzel Candy (only I use M&M's) is the concrete thing.

    Normally dipped pretzels, peanut brittle, fruitcake, cookies and fudge go into the goodie bags. Sweetie lost his job today so I don't have to make goodie bags this year. I'll still make peanut brittle and fudge for his family but not lots of other things. icon_smile.gif

    I'm pretty much off the hook for goodies at Christmas. I will have a fruit and cheese plate with crackers, crudites with dip(s) and chilled shrimp with cocktail sauce set out. Both my mother and one brother likes to bake so they bring along sausage rolls, mincemeat tarts, shortbread, butter tarts and whatever else that they felt like making. They also bring extra so we can divvy up the spoils when folks are leaving. It's an equal opportunity 'lets eat way too much and gain 5 lbs' kind of day. icon_lol.gif

    We keep trying to cut back on the goodies because by the time we get to dinner don't always have great appetites.

    We like
    Soft Ginger Cookies - great flavor and soft, unlike ginger snaps
    Fudge Crinkles - simple recipe that is easy to change up with M&M's, chips or whatever - we leave off the powdered sugar
    Chocolate Cherry Cookies - can be labor intensive but well worth the work
    Homemade thin mint cookies
    Oreo Cherry Truffles - I also have another recipe for plain Oreo truffles that I often make
    Raspberry Citrus Bars
    Chocolate Raspberry Crumb Bars
    Good Morning Bars
    and of course the pretzel rings with kisses & M&M's that I think you mentioned.

    Can't get to my reviews right now but there are some good brownie recipes we make too. If at some point I can access my reviews again, I will post those recipes.

    I make the listed recipes year-round and not at holiday time. We go to the IL's for the holidays and DH's family only will eat sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies. How boring!

    Sorry to everyone's recipe I listed for not putting your name by it.

    ETA:
    Fudgy Low-Fat Brownies
    Cookie-Stuffed Brownies
    Three Chocolatiers Brownies
    Aim's Best Batch of Brownies
    and a fudge recipe (the only one that has worked for me) Grandma Mae's Fudge

    Dee those are beautiful cookies, very nice work!


    In the past I have made
    Chocolate Cheese Fudge this recipe is crazy easy, and soooo yummy, not grainy at all like other recipes for fudge.
    Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge
    Crystallized Ginger , Ginger Syrup & Ginger Sugar
    Peppermint Bark
    This coming weekend I will start Love Honey
    Pale Tigers Butter this is awesome!
    I've also made homemade vanilla extract with vanilla vodka, and have made it with captain morgan too as gifts for giving.
    This year I want to make Creamy Hot Chocolate Mix in a Jar (For Gift-Giving) and attach skewered chocolate covered marshmellows dipped in crushed peppermint candy along with a stack of homemade vanilla bean shortbread dipped in chocolate.

    I don't actually do "trays". I will make a pound cake with blueberry compote for the judge and his family. I made one for him for his birthday and his family has been raving about it since. I will make a cupcake tray for the Clerk's office. I bought cute cupcake papers and little pick things to put in them. I think I'm going to use the red velvet cake recipe from our church cookbook with cream cheese icing. I want to make those pretzel things for one of our court reporters who loves turtle candies. .I may make something for our deputies here in the courthouse. I think that's it.

    Thank you both, but I cannot take credit for them, I did not make them!
    There was an email from King Arthur Flour in my box this morning with a link to the recipe and pic. I only reposted it to inspire creativity. icon_wink.gif I thought it was an easy and unique decorating technique. icon_smile.gif

    Nanaimo Bars if I really like you icon_lol.gif


    I hear ya on the Nanaimo, a bit fussy but OH SO GOOD!
    The one and only time I made them was for DD's 2nd grade Canada project. I whirled the coconut in the food processor to make it finer.

    P.S. Sorry racrgal! What a huge BUMMER!

    I'll probably do goodie bags of peanut butter fudge, and chocolate dipped macaroons, and the family can grab whatever they want!
