Edible Handmade Christmas Gifts

Here's my NON comprehensive list of yummies that would make quick and easy gifts. This is especially handy for teachers and friends and neighbors. I simply went down my bookmarked recipe list and my past favorites. There are a ton more out there I'm sure!
White chocolate orange crunch ...I made this for a friend's bday and it was a big hit. For teachers I'm going to let the kids help me make a different version substituting almond flavoring and dark chocolate

Chocolate truffles with sea salt

Cocoa in a jar

MS Apple Cranberry fruit leather

Iced pumpkin cookies

Spiced Pumpkin dunking sticks

White chocolate cherry shortbread

MS cheese chips

MS chocolate cereal bon bons

White Chocolate Popcorn

Chocolate Pretzel Buttons

Oreo Truffles

Gourmet Chocolate Caramel Apple

Playdough Cookie Pops

Mini Pumpkin Bread loaves

Cranberry Almond Granola

Vanilla Chai Tea Mix

Be creative with your containers! You can use anything on hand and I like to keep all sized mason jars to put goodies in. You can use anything from empty egg crates to empty takeout deli containers! For a super nice gift you can also get pretty decorative mini baking loaf pans and leave you yummy bread in it and wrap with cellophane and ribbon. If I get a chance I'll try to post some pictures of pretty packaging.

And here's some label printables to add:
Adorable Cookie Labels

I will add more printables when I find them!

Happy Baking!!

I LOVE THOSE OREO Truffles. OMG they are amazing. My MIL made them for a family gathering when we were back in April. Hunter loved them and was insisting on getting the recipe before he left their house. I wanted to make them here but could not find the almond bark at the commissary. Just last week I saw some because its holiday time now!!! Only 3 bags left. (Only she used "brown" chocolate and that's all I got here too) SO excited!
