Christmas Gift for the Boss

It's really really hard to buy a gift for the boss- even harder if you don't. My plan: I am making a tower of treats just like those gourmet food places make. I will use whatever holiday food wrap the grocer has available, or I will use plain aluminum pans with plastic tops. Stacked on top of each other and tied up with a ribbon, this should make a nice gift.

All this planning being presented, what do you suggest for the pans? Do you have Christmas goodies recipes to share? I have to buy the groceries on Friday evening and make the stuff on Sunday.

My current thought is an apple cake or a spice cake in the bottom aluminum pan with a clear plastic top.

Next - ?


Tied up with a ribbon and a small sticker naming ingredients on the bottom of each container so he won't face allergies for the holidays with his family.

  • Something candy/chocolate on top. I have an EASY candy recipe that tastes like Heath Bars topped with chocloate and nuts..leave the nuts out if you want.

  • I make own similar treat towers, and get my ideas right from Harry and! I usually make a cake or assorted frosted/holiday cookies on the bottom, followed by dark and white chocolate covered and decorated pretzels (rods and classic shapes) including peanut butter, mint, and caramel toppings!), then on top a box of homemade fudge...a variety of flavors!

    I can "mass produce" everything (in fact, I'm waiting for some cookies to cool as we speak!) in assembly line fashion, so it's really pretty easy to mix up each gift tower.
