What to make for holiday gifts

Do you make tasty treats for holiday gifts? If so please share

For the last few years we have been making chocolate dipped figs with various toppings. They were a hit the first time so we have just kept it going but we need something new!

We've made something similar in our family for years called soda cracker bars. Love them!

Jams, jellies, hard candy, peanut brittle, caramel corn, fudge, cookies, etc are always hits around here.

Re: What to make for holiday gifts

In the past I've made spoons diped in chocolate or other flavors (let it dry & harden on it) to use as a flavor stir in for coffee, premade baked goods mixes in mason jars (include a card with what wet ingredients to add like eggs, water, etc), Baked goods, breads, trailmix, personalized recipe books or boxes...

I made fudge, haystacks, rum balls, chocolate chip cookies, and pumpkin bread. Everyone gets some in a holiday tin (Dollar Tree!).
