  • One of my favorite things to make to give away at Christmas is chocolate covered pretzels. You just melt chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch, whatever flavor bark you like, coat the pretzels, and then sprinkle with holiday colored sprinkles. They turn out really cute, and people like them.


    I've also made spiced tea (like what you'd get from a tea room) and given that as gifts. Mix it, give it in powder form with a directions card, and tie with a holiday ribbon. Sometimes I like to add cinnamon candies instead of cinnamon.

  • I love the 7 layer bars ( i think it has 7 layers lol) butterscotch. choc, coconut, graham cracker crust, drizzle with sweetened condensed milk..dont know the recipe, but this is my fave at Christmas time!!

    Also consider Glass candy..I think cinnamon is the best..sprinkle with powdered sugar. Very good and old fashioned!!

  • Buckeyes are always great, peanut butter, powdered sugar, and dipped in chocolate. Might be time consuming, but a good old solid recipe that most ppl love.
    Ever try Velveeta fudge? I know, I know, I know, sounds flipping nasty, but it is the smoothest, creamiest, and easiest fudge I've ever made. I like it with almond extract and almonds instead of vanilla and pecans/walnuts.
    Definitely the chocolate dipped pretzels with Christmas sprinkles.
    HMMM, all my suggestions have chocolate....
