Christmas dinner in two days at my Aunts... I was asked to bring a "snack" & then a dish/dessert... I know there are so many options.. what is super easy?

I simply cannot decide. I can bring anything. I really need something thats not time consuming & not required to do a bunch of stuff to it. I have 3 children, super pregnant, and hubby will be working.. so i need super easy ideas!!

What would you make?

  • Brownies for dessert (easy from a box mix) and for the snack I would get nacho chips & salsa dip, or potato chips & onion dip (maybe both if you want).

  • You can bake some holiday refrigerator cookies Pillsbury has in the refrigerator case. A pie is also an option since all you do is take a premade crust which also Pillsbury puts out in the refrigerator case and add a filling whether it be chocolate or fruited which you can buy a canned pie filling like cherry or apple or blueberry, and it really isn't hard to do. Cupcakes are really easy to make too since you can choose any flavor cake mix and any premade flavor frosting you would like. most people like cupcakes since they are easy to make and easy to eat.

  • Tiger Butter...1 package of white chocolate chips and 2 tbs. peanut butter, melt them in the microwave, then spread on foil. Melt 2 hershey bars then marble that into the other mixture...refrigerate...it is the fastest and best tasting treat ever...I have to hide it so that it doesn't get eaten before the guests even arrive...

  • My mom didn't know her way around the kitchen so she always fixed a fruit salad for things like that. She opened a large can of fruit cocktail then added a banana cut up, and apple cut up, an orange peeled and cut up then threw in some nuts and coconut. That's it!

  • This is what I am bringing to one of my 4 family gatherings: Search google for recipes
    Snack- cucumber cream cheese dip with crackers
    Dessert- Rolo turtles

    Also bringing a relish/ veggie tray with dip to another gathering and also "Rockin Smores Bars" which turn out to be much easier and quicker than I thought they'd be.

    I'm a big fan of keeping it simple- good luck and Happy Holidays.
