    I think nuts make easy gifts at the holidays, just put them in a nice little jar or tin. Great for holiday parties too.

    Savory Spiced Nuts recipe #44313

    Sugar and Spice Almonds recipe #37889

    This one would be nice packed with a big coffee mug

    Mexican Hot Chocolate Mix recipe #28860

    For the sweet tooth there's always fudge icon_smile.gif

    Chocolate & Peanut Butter Fudge recipe #35188

    Peanut Butter Fudge recipe #35324

    Chocolate Fudge with Almonds recipe #35382

    or another Southern sweet treat

    Creole Pralines recipe #39539

    Here are some other gift ideas that make great tuck-ins for gift baskets and jars

    Bouquet Garnis recipe #35214

    Here are some ideas for you:

    Lennie's Cranberry Mandarin Mini Loaves
    --at xmas time, you can usually find mini foil loaf pans in holiday patterns; bake this recipe in those, then wrap with coloured cellophane

    Best-Seller Caramel Corn
    --excellent when packaged in holiday tins

    Chocolate Truffles with Liqueur
    Candy Cane Bark
    Easy Microwave Fudge
    Penuche Fudge
    Sesame Toffee
    --everybody loves to receive a box of sweet goodies, I think; mix and match as desired icon_biggrin.gif

    Emeril Lagasse's Essence
    Copycat Lawry's Seasoned Salt
    --it's nice to receive spice mixes in jars

    Lennie's Special Shortbread
    --these are the most-requested from my friends icon_biggrin.gif

    I don't know if you're into making preserves, but I have lots of those recipes too, and they make great gifts icon_smile.gif

    I forgot one of my standbys!
    Sugar-and-Spice Nuts
    --I do these up in pretty cellophane bags; I give out lots icon_biggrin.gif

    Hi Paula&Matt,
    This isn't my recipe but a great one. Got it from a co-worker one year and thought it was so nice! Found it on Zaar also, posted by "Chia" chocolate chip cookie mix in a jar. "Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Jar". It's a great gift! Keep several on hand for company that drops in and if you have some leftover use them yourself! The one I recieved was in a canning jar with red & green Gingham ribbons tied around the top! Very nice for Christmas! For other holidays just change the colors! icon_biggrin.gif

    Here's my own recipes that I've used as gifts:

    Bobbie-Q Sauce

    Chocolate Oreo Bark

    White Christmas

    Peter Piper's Pickled Peppers - very easy!

    Honey Wheat Oatmeal Bread for the bread machine -- you can make it up as a mix to give as a gift, or bake it yourself.

    Panocha Walnuts These are SO awesome. One of my daughter's friends begs her to make these all the time.

    And here's someone else's:

    Charishma's Spicy Pecans or Walnuts

    Sharon123's Easy Date Candy Roll
