Edible Gifts: Holiday Candy Recipes

Getting ready for the holidays usually means spending a lot of time in that beloved kitchen, fixing mouthwatering meats, vegetables, salads, breads, desserts and candies.

Thanksgiving – a time to reflect on the blessings in your life – and Christmas – a time when folks celebrate the birth of Christ – are the two major winter holidays, and both occasions typically bring family and friends together, where they enjoy the pleasures of good company and delicious foods. And nowadays, Christmas is oftentimes celebrated with the exchange of gifts, and edible ones are becoming more and more popular.

All of these tasty treats can be fun for the whole family to make. On the containers or bags of the goodies you give away, attach a recipe card so your friends and family will know how to bake up their own holiday cheer. Or skip the recipe card, and let everyone think you worked really hard to make them a special edible gift.
