day 287: make a fall goodie tray for the family or other fall get-together

I have a divided basket that has eight wells around the outside and two in the middle of it. I love to do seasonal type of things in this basket for our family as well as for get-togethers.

This weekend I did a fall one. Here is what I put in mine:

Middle: apple dip (recipe to follow)

Middle: chocolate chip “cheese ball” (recipe to follow)

Outside: apples, grapes, mixed nuts, peanuts, candy pumpkins, candy corn, Teddy grahams, mini vanilla wafers

I put the apples, grapes, mixed nuts, and peanuts on the side (end) with the apple dip.

I put the candy pumpkins, candy corn, Teddy grahams, and mini vanilla wafers on the side (end) with the chocolate chip cheese ball.

This is a great carry-in for finger food get-togethers, and there is something for kids of all ages if taken to a youth or gathering with children.

I’ll give you some ideas for a Christmas one later. If you do not have divided basket with plastic liner, any type of veggie tray will also work (though might have fewer “wells”).

Have a fun fall!
