With every good party comes a great sweet tray. If your parties are like my family’s, a “sweet tray” is a necessity. It essentially means a pile of bite-sized cookies, brownies, bars, balls, and cakes. Unlike a large pie or cake, sweet trays are nice because there’s something different for everyone, and you don’t have to commit to a whole slice if you don’t want to. And, another bonus, if you make a vegan/gluten-free/nut-free recipe, you’ll cover most dietary concerns too! Everyone’s happy. Give it a go!
How to create the perfect sweet tray:
1) Choose 3 or more from the recipes below.
Bird’s Nest Cookies (Vegan, GF)
No-Bake Paleo Cookies (Vegan, GF)
Toasted Coconut Bars (Vegan, GF)
Lemon Coconut Snack Bites (Vegan, GF)

2) Make sweets. To save time, perhaps choose a no baking-required, vegan, and classic sweet. If you have ample time, delve into the timelier “fun treats” world. Alternatively, if you’re not in the baking mood, buy pre-packaged sweets.
3) Arrange sweets nicely on a platter. To healthify it up, feel free to add fresh fruit.
4) Bring to your party. The holiday party is now complete!
