Goodies for Gifts Recipes

With the holidays coming up, I know alot of people like to make homemade treats as gifts for people. I have done this the past few years & this year I am looking for some new, easy & frugal recipes that I can make as gifts! So post your recipes here! I've got a few I'll be back to post as well as a few cookies in jars recipes too if people are interested!

I always make Peppermint Crunch.

It's super easy.

Melt 2lbs of white chocolate wafers in a double boiler. Mix with one package of crushed candy canes. Pour out onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet and cool. Break into pieces and package

Re: Goodies for Gifts Recipes

I always bake cookies and fudge for everyone. Then I package them in tins I buy at the Goodwill for .50 each.

I also make some jar gifts. My favorite is for hot chocolate:
3 C. powdered milk
1/2 C. cocoa
3/4 C. sugar
Mix together and put in jar. Use 4 T. mix per cup of hot water.

This brownie jar recipe got good reviews last year:
2 C. sugar
1 C. each cocoa, flour, nuts, and chocolate chips
Mix together and put in jar.
Directions to use: Mix contents of jar with 1 C. butter and 4 eggs. Pour into greases 12x9 pan and bake at 325 for 45 min.

Sometimes I put together gift baskets like movie night, pizza night, tea or coffee, etc.
