It’s getting down to the wire and Christmas is right around the corner. I love going to goodie exchange parties, it’s one of my favorite things because of everything new you get to try. I have put a list of 35 Christmas Treats to Exchange that are sure to be a hit at your next exchange.
I love trying new treats around the holidays.
To me- it’s always fun to see what people make and what the stories are around the treat that they did make. Some people make Christmas treats because they’re easy and others make treats because it brings back great memories.

Christmas Treats Exchange Family History
Our family has a tradition that on Christmas Eve we get together and have dinner and dessert. Dessert consists of a variety of cookies and hot cocoa or coffee. This tradition has been going on since before I became a part of my husbands family and it’s one I have always loved…mostly.
You might ask what’s not to love? Well when I first came into the family it was all the cookie baking at the last minute to get a huge variety of goodies.
Now as I’ve become more involved in the community I participate in several goodies exchanges. I’ll be honest this has really helped relieve the stress of making a ton of different cookies for Christmas Eve!
The boys and I get busy in the kitchen and make more of one certain item than I can really count! This item is used for the season as our exchange item and we use all of the goodies we receive in exchange for our Christmas Eve contribution. It works out wonders! This year we are making a ton of these White Chocolate Pretzel Christmas Trees!
