The season of gift-giving is upon us! There are endless options everywhere around us, but something about making it yourself and giving a gift a person can enjoy and use makes it all the more special. Try these 5 edible gifts everyone will enjoy right away!
This is one gift I would LOVE if someone gave it to me! The sweetness, saltiness and spiciness combo is one everyone will love.
Preheat the oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir until the nuts are all evenly coated. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until everything is nice and golden brown. Once the nuts are removed from the oven, let them cool on the baking sheet. Store this nutty treat in a glass container and enjoy!
Who doesn’t love cookies? Cookies in a jar is an edible gift that is fun to make and to enjoy. This DIY gift ingredients can be adjusted to the person you are giving it preferences, add raisins if they love raisins, include candy cane chunks for festive cookies, etc.
Top it off with a personalized note to the instruction tag! Here is what you need to make cookie mix in a jar:
Combine the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt. Place in the bottom of the jar. Using the back of a spoon. Pack it down and make it smooth. Add the brown sugar and pack it down as well. Then finally add the granulated sugar. Add the roughly chopped chocolate on top and finally add the lid and decorate using any scrap fabrics or cotton ties and decorate using cinnamon sticks or any other compostable decor.
Include a label with the following instructions:
Preheat oven to 375F. Beat ¾ cup of softened butter (or any butter substitute) 1 large egg. ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract in a large bowl. Add cookie mix and mix well! Drop tablespoon-size onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10 min or until golden brown. Let cool and enjoy!
Fun to make for your inner chef or if you want a fun challenge. Maybe give this one away or keep it to enjoy a cup yourself! Store in an airtight jar, and add a little decoration for some seasonal fun. This hot chocolate mix can be used with any of your favourite milk (dairy and non-dairy options both taste amazing with this mix!)
I made these marshmallows, and all I can say is THEY ARE SO GOOD! Everyone I gave them too loved them. If you are up to the challenge, I highly recommend trying to make these to make your gift extra special. Or try these vegan marshmallows.
Mix all the ingredients in a mason jar. Decorate with some fabric scraps or compostable decorations with a note saying: Add one heaping tablespoon to 1 cup of milk and heat in a small saucepan over medium heat. Continue to stir so it does not burn.
