Wrap these gifts quick!

Before you accidentally eat them.

No matter how carefully you unwrap then rewrap, someone’s going to find out.

 

Cookies:

It’s hard to beat homemade cookies! As we all know, something special happens when sugar and butter join forces.

Icebox Shortbread

These sturdy beauties ship well, so go ahead and send your second grade pen pal a big box of holiday joy. Fold in your favorite dried fruit, nuts, or chocolate for some extra pizzaz.

Chocolate Crinkles

Perfect for all of those chocolate lovers out there. Recommended serving size = at least 5.

Cranberry Orange Biscotti

Healthy enough for breakfast. Kind of. Serve with tea or coffee… or hot chocolate because why the heck not.

 

Candy:

Cookies are nice, but candy is slightly more impressive. If you’re the indecisive sort, no one’s stopping you from making both…

Peppermint Marshmallows

Float a couple of these bad boys in a rich cup of hot chocolate. Or whip up a festive wintertime s’more! The opportunities are nearly endless.

Soft Caramels

Impressive and delicious. Politely encourage chatty Aunt Phyllis to chew on a couple of these when you need a few moments of silence. You’ll both appreciate it.

White Chocolate Peppermint Bark

Take out all of your holiday related stress on those candy canes when you smash them up real good before gently folding them into the melted white chocolate. Bonus: this recipe only requires three ingredients!

 

Mixes:

Stir a few ingredients together in a cute jar with some instructions and you’re good to go. If your giftee appreciates a good challenge, feel free to leave out the instructions.

Chai Tea Mix

Not everyone loves dessert, so save the cookies for yourself and wrap up some chai tea mix instead.

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

So much better than the stuff from the store. Include some marshmallows and candy canes if you’re feeling extra generous.

Molasses Cookie Mix

Some people need a little prodding. This cookie mix should do the trick.
