How to Make a Holiday Dessert Tray

While I would love to have the time to make six different homemade treats, sometimes that’s just not in the cards! Don’t be afraid to use your local grocery store bakery for a great variety of delicious and decadent treats!

You will need –

  • 6 or more desserts / treats*
  • 1 board or tray (I used a cutting board from Walmart)
  • fresh mint leaves (rosemary also looks great!)
  • fresh cranberries

* Some of my favorite store-bought treats to use for this dessert board are Brownie Bites, Peanut Brittle, Chocolate Covered Pretzels, and a Pecan Pie.

Directions – 

  1. Cut your treats into bite-sized pieces
  2. Arrange them in clusters on your board.
  3. Tuck in some mint leaves to fill the empty spaces.
  4. Add some fresh cranberries for a pop of color.

This holiday dessert tray took me less than five minutes to put together! Holiday entertaining doesn’t get any easier than that!  If you’re looking for a healthy appetizer to start your party, you should also try our Ultimate Veggie Tray.  Leave us a comment below and let us know what you serve on your dessert tray.
