Pink Party Treats for the Holidays

Is it just me or do you hate baking for the holidays? I love bringing a thoughtful treat to family gatherings and social events but I do not want to worry about following a recipe and pulling out the hardly used Kitchenaid I received as a wedding gift seven years ago. I want to be one of those women that shows up to the event and everyone says, "Wow, Kenzie! You made this?" Well, guess what! I was that woman at my family's Thanksgiving party when I showed up with this beautiful dessert display. And you won't believe it! I only used the microwave for one minute to make this yummy treat tray. I put my shopping skills to good use and my friendly neighborhood Trader Joe's and scored a handful of incredibly scrumptious sweets.

Let me make it easy for you to be "that woman" this year! I'm sharing all the items I purchased below!

Here is what to shop for at your local Trader Joe's.

Dark Chocolate Shortbread Star Cookies $3.99

(They also have mini Star cookies that are mint & dark chocolate flavored)

Peppermint Bark $9.99

(These come in the form of a brick. Tools needed: Hammer, Eye Goggles)

Peppermint Pretzel Slims $2.99

(There is a debate going on whether or not these or the ones at Costco are better.)

Scandinavian Tidings $2.99

(AKA Adult Fruit Snacks)

Mini Peppermint Meringues $1.99

(Do not ask me how many packs of these I have already eaten. These are my favorite thing out of the entire list.)

Cinnamon Schoolbook Cookies $2.99

(I dipped these in some colored chocolate and sprinkled some crushed peppermint on top. How cute is it to spell out words?)

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cremes $2.99

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Twist Assortment $6.99

Pink Candy Melts -

Pink Sprinkles -

Find other Holiday candy at Oriental Trading Company.

Once you have purchased all of your goodies you will want to assemble everything on a cute tray. I found my rattan tray at the At Home Store.

Display all your treats on your tray one handful at a time. Try to keep the same colors from being next to each other. It is that easy! Mix it up by switching pink out for green or doing a winter mix with blue. The options are endless. Have fun and enjoy!
