Edible Gift IdeasAlthough electronics and clothes and shoes are great gifts in general, sometimes it’s a good idea (and a fun one) to take a DIY approach to gift-giving. Your recipient will feel treasured and, if you find solace in the kitchen, you’ll also be rewarded while crafting your edible gifts for the ones you love.

All of these fun ideas below can either be tied up with ribbon in a treat bag or sealed in a pretty mason jar. And remember, food is universal, so your friends and family won’t have to make exchanges, ask for a gift receipt, or try things on for size. That’s something everyone can appreciate!

      I feel like food gifts is becoming such a lost art in our instant gratification society. When I was a child, my grandmother would spend weeks cooking and baking sweet treats to give to everyone! The mailman, the garbage man, her hairdresser, etc. I made it a priority when she was still independent and lucid to learn how to make some of her sweet treats and as a young single adult it always impresses people when I show up around the holiday’s with homemade spritz cookies.

      I think we are going to try to pass out Christmas tea this year.
      I love the Holly Jolly recipe, but wondering if I can just use bakers chocolate instead of almond chocolate?

        It’s called Almond Bark, but that is just a name. There are no almonds in the chocolate. You can find it on the baking aisle in Walmart and it comes in white chocolate and regular chocolate. It’s for melting to use in making candy. Bakers chocolate could be used, but it would be very expensive since it requires so much chocolate to make the Holly Jollies.
