Great Homemade Food Gifts

Black-and-White Pretzels

Double-dipper chocolate and vanilla pretzels are a sweet food gift that anyone. For packaging, glue scrapbook paper around a potato chip can. Adhere a homemade label to the can using glue, and then wrap the can with twine.

Everyone loves a good cocktail! These spiced cherries are flavored with bourbon, vanilla, and pepper -- making them a must-have for home mixologists

Cinnamon and Fruit Cookies

Gift this classic childhood favorite with a grown-up twist for the holidays. A fresh dose of cinnamon and dried fruits add some sophisticated flavors to oatmeal cookies. For the packaging, line a small burlap gifts bag with brown parchment paper. Tie the filled bag with ribbon and add a tag

Petite Peppermint Petits Fours

Need a last-minute gift? Don’t worry. These French-style peppermint cake have a trick up their sleeves: A frozen pound cake base allows you to put them together in just 30 minutes. Dress up with paper candy cups and a gift box.

Hazelnut Rocky Road Brownie Mix

Brownie mix in a jar is a great gift for family friends. Our recipe features gooey marshmallows, cocoa-rich powder, and a layer of crunchy hazelnut. Pour the ingredients into the utensil one by one, and then decor it for the season. (We used velvet stickers to jazz up the sides of the pot.) For the flower topper, layer a paper tag, a vintage foil flower, and a large button; adhere them together with a few dabs of hot glue.

Sweet Cherry Truffles

A light dusting of powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and nuts completes these decadent truffles. Made with rich whipping cream and chocolates, the outside is just as good as the juicy cherry center. Package these treats using small paper candy cups and a gift box tied with ribbon.

Homemade Marshmallows

Light-as-air homemade marshmallows are a treat to give -- recipients can add them to hot cocoa on a chilly night. Wrap the marshmallows in a cellophane bag topped with a small chalkboard gift tag (available at crafts or hobby stores).

Chocolate Candy Slab

Customize tempered chocolates with your favorite candies -- we love the sweet-and-salty combo of pretzels and peppermint. To package, cut a circle just smaller than the jar lid from about 25 layers of holiday colored tissue paper. Use a double-thread needle to make one stitch in the center of the stack; knot. Snip around the circle at regular interval. Pull the tissue paper petal shapes up and toward the center. Use a glue dot to adhere the flower to the jar lid.

Candied Ginger

Our spicy-sweet candied ginger is an adorable gift. It can be used in cocktails, baking, or eaten all on its own.

Everything Cracker Crisps

This snack is for the bagel lovers out there. We have borrowed the savory flavors of everything bagels and transformed them into a crisp cracker.

Chunky Cranberry Relish

Cinnamon and orange zest add pizzazz to this delicious relish, which can be made up to a week in advance. Decorate jars, topped with cute wooden spoons and personalized note, make ideal packaging
