Though December is dominated by cookies of all varieties, not everyone is aboard the cookie train (I know, hard to believe!). Some folks prefer homemade candies, while others love the combination of salty/sweet snacks. For those who are looking for a little something different, here are 9 Edible Treats for Gift Giving that AREN’T Cookies!
Great for hostess gifts or for giving out along with your cookie plate, these edible candies and treats are an easy and cost-friendly alternative to baking batches and batches of cookies. I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a die-hard cookie fan and every year my kitchen turns into a butter paradise in December…but I always try to include a little homemade candy arrangement as well. It’s something different in terms of taste and texture and it’s a quick project to work on while my cookies bake away in the oven.
So if you’re looking for an easy candy recipe or something simple and quick to bring to your work cookie exchange, look no further than these 9 Sweet Treats that are Great for Gift Giving!
