Homemade Holiday Food Gifts: Peanut Butter Nutella Buckeyes, Salted Caramel Popcorn, and Deluxe Sugar Cookies
Homemade gifts are the best gifts. And, when your holiday gift list includes not only family and friends, but also co-workers, neighbors, teachers, and even the mailman, homemade treats make heartfelt economical gifts that everyone appreciates.
It has become a family holiday tradition to walk door-to-door together delivering sweet treats and merry well-wishes to our neighbors the week of Christmas. Most have family coming in for the holidays so something to share with houseguests is always accepted with open arms: a pound cake that can serve as tonight’s dessert (and tomorrows breakfast), caramel popcorn for a family Christmas movie night, or sugar cookies for Santa.
The holidays are a time to come together and enjoy the company of those you love. I love making gifts that go beyond the present and foster family togetherness and traditions. I have a friend that makes cinnamon rolls as gifts for friends to bake on Christmas morning, and I love to give pre-made cookie dough so baking cookies for Santa can be fun and hassle-free.
There’s nothing more personal or generous than cooking for someone and homemade gifts are certainly made with love.
