With the holidays nearly upon us, it’s time to start thinking about entertaining. I know, I know – while all the festivities can be fun, it can also be downright stressful to plan for all the holiday get-togethers, parties and family dinners. If you’re like me, you want every event to feel special and memorable, even when you have little time to prepare.
This easy holiday cookie table gets that special touch from Pepperidge Farm cookies, along with a quick cannoli dip that is perfect for dipping the wide assortment of Pepperidge Farm Cookies.
You can focus on the presentation and having fun – not on all the work!
For this cookie table, simple is better. I chose pops of red and a few of my favorite holiday decor pieces to accent the table.
The cookies go from their festive bags to a wooden board. It’s easy for guest to grab and dip. With the Classic Cookie Collection and Chocolate Cookie Collection, you can put the cookies out in the convenient tray with liners dividing the cookies. The Classic Cookie Collection Assortment consists of Chessman, Bordeaux, Brussels, Milano, Geneva, Lisbon and Lido and the Chocolate Cookie Collection consist of DC Milano, Milano, Chocolate Dipped Lisbon, Bordeaux, Lido, Orleans. Best of all, you can pick up all of these varieties at Target while you’re shopping for other holiday or entertaining necessities!
I love the detail on the Gingerbread cookies from the Gingerbread Collection – a must have at a holiday party!
Idea: Let younger guests decorate these gingerbread cookies with icing and candy – so fun!
You can find the simple Cannoli Dip Recipe at the end of the post – but it is as easy as mixing a few ingredients together and adding chocolate chips. Everyone raves about it and serves as the best complement to this assortment of cookies.
To make it fun, I used a chalkboard square to label and highlight the dip and shared some of my favorite picks.
The Pirouttes are especially perfect for this cookie table and dip! I can remember enjoying these cookies as a child – and now can serve them at my holiday get-togethers.
With this easy idea for a cookie table and dessert, you can make it fun, easy and festive while focusing on family and friends. Pepperidge Farm cookies make it possible to have a wide variety of cookies on hand – ready to restock your cookie table (because they will go fast, along with that dip!) Pick up your Pepperidge Farm cookies and cookie table supplies at your local Target.
