Edible Christmas Trees {Sweets and Treats}

Helllloooooo December!

Tis the season….for company parties and neighborhood gatherings! At some point this season, there is a good chance you are going to have to bring SOME food to SOME get together, so why not make it something fun? Now I’m not saying there is anything wrong with a batch of fresh cookies, but cookies are WAY over done during the holiday season. And can be really time consuming. And you have to hide the leftovers from yourself so you don’t eat them…..

Edible Christmas Trees {Veggies, Fruits, Sweets}

Anyways, circling back! Use this list as some inspiration for your holiday party dish! Surprise people and show up with one of these gorgeous veggie trees! They look spectacular, and won’t put everyone into a sugar-induced coma! Win-win!

As with all my lists, I've hyper-linked in the original source in each description so you can find the details easier!
