Christmas Cookie Trays don’t have to be filled with just cookies. There are a lot of special treats that are shared each and every year on the traditional cookie tray.  

Christmas Cookie TrayIn fact, some of our favorite sweet treats this time of year aren’t even cookies at all. They may be a chocolate dipped pretzel with sprinkles spread over the top of it, classic peanut brittle, or even the Ohio famous Buckeye Candy.

Below you will find several recipes that we include on our Christmas cookie trays that we share with our family and friends. We know there are a ton more to share and feel free to do so in the comments below.
