This week I hosted a holiday book club and cookie exchange for my friends to discuss a very festive and classic book, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I decided to put together a few Christmas appetizers and treats for the book club. You can see my Christmas Party Shopping List for Walmart here.
For appetizers, I served a cheese platter with fine cheese, crackers, and amazing olives with dipping oil. This was an easy choice because I did not have to make anything, I just picked out awesome cheese, crackers, and of course, olives.
The main course for the Christmas Brunch is little sandwiches made on King’s Hawaiian. I bought a large pack of small sliced cheeses with swiss, cheddar, Colby, and pepper jack. The meats that I chose to serve are ham and salami with a custom ranch mayo recipe you can make too. The little sandwiches were taken to the next level of deliciousness with KING’S HAWAIIAN® Sweet Dinner Rolls.

Ranch Mayo Recipe
1 Cup Light Mayo
1 Cup Whole Milk
1 Tbsp Olive Dipping Oil
1 Hidden Valley Original Ranch Salad Dressing and Seasoning Mix Packet
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
I started by buttering the bread with the ranch mayo. Then, I added two pieces of meat and one piece of cheese to each mini sandwich. As you can see, I bought a bunch of Christmas bowls and a cute cupcake display to serve the mini sandwiches.
For dessert, I served home baked cookies and milk. I intended to put the cookies on the top of the little jars, but they ended up too chunky. Next time, I will flatten them before baking the cookies. Also, I would use fewer chips and no nuts or chocolate chunks. The cookie came out amazing, and we drank all the milk during the cookie exchange. Here is the recipe that I used for the Christmas Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
