Are You Making an Edible Gift This Holiday Season?

For the past 10 days, YumSugar and I have been going all-out with the edible gifts. We've made everything from classic treats like peppermint bark and peanut brittle to savory delights like spicy cashews and chicken liver pate. We've got two more days left in the series, and I want to know, have we inspired you? Will you be making and giving edible gifts this year?

I made chocolate covered-meringues, chocolate covered pretzels, and marshmallows (vanilla, peppermint, and pumpkin spice flavored)! All were a hit!

I love the idea of edible gifts, but unfortunately, I think edible gifts are too casual for Christmas. I think it's okay for casual acquaintances or casual gifts during non-holiday times. Nonetheless, I love the feeling of making something at home and packaging them nicely. It's a nice feeling.

Yes. I'm in the process. Old fashioned peanut brittle, gingerbread caramels, peanut butter blossoms, 3 different truffles (chocolate, peanut butter, Bailey's chocolate), fudge, chocolate covered gingerbread men, Candy Cane swirl brownies. I'm a little overwhelmed at the moment, cuz they should all be in the mail by tomorrow. I'll send the ones to my bf's family to make sure they are there on time, but the rest, I have come to terms with them being a day or two late.

I'm not making one b/c I wouldn't want to receive one. I would maybe consider giving kahlua or another drink as a gift.

I made packages of 4 kinds of cookies, hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, and rosemary salt for friends and family. Plus bath salts, but they aren't exactly edible. It was fun, but it was a heck of a lot of work!

I'm asked to make Chocolate Chip Cookies for pretty much every occasion, so I'm making those again this year. I'll also be making oatmeal cookies and Pumpkin-Cranberry Cookies. If I have time, I want to try making the homemade Pomegranate Jelly and homemade grenadine. Does anyone have any good ideas for storage containers for these two? I'm not keen on the idea of going out and buying glass containers of some sort, but I can't think of anything else to store them in that would look good. D:

My husband and I made quarts and quarts of garden sauce this summer using produce from our garden (tomatoes, onions, carrots, peppers, etc.) and grew organic popcorn, and made homemade vanilla flavoring using finnlover's recipe. These will go in boxes to mail to our relatives. Made peppermint bark, peanut brittle, and chocolate-covered bacon for a sweet-loving friend. Just finished baking dozens of gingerbread stars and honey cookies this week to give to local friends. I think I'm done for now! LOL :) Now I get to plan next year's goodies for the baskets and bags...I have collected too many recipes from here to make them all this year! ;) I love all the edible gift ideas!
