And as a bonus, edible gifts are an affordable and thoughtful way to show you care. Here are some of our recipe suggestions for last-minute edible gifts.
Who doesn’t love fudge? It’s a fail-proof present, and this recipe couldn’t be any simpler. Seriously—all you have to do is microwave, stir, and spread. And with just five ingredients, you’ll have homemade fudge to gift to friends and family in a flash.
If five ingredients are too many for you, we’ll make it even easier for you. Here’s our favorite recipe for Christmas candy bark. You only need two ingredients to make it: chocolate chips and roasted almonds. But feel free to add more goodies like peppermint stick pieces or peanuts.
Freshly baked cookies are another ideal edible gift option. Check out some of our favorite recipe suggestions here, from sea salt chocolate chip cookies to peanut butter oatmeal cookies.
Last but not least on our list of edible gifts are Buckeyes — a sweet and salty seasonal treat that make ideal gifts for diehard peanut butter and chocolate lovers. Think of them as the original Reese’s Cup, but tastier.
