DIY Food Gifts

Having trouble finding the right gift for your favorite coworker or your aunt?  A gift filled with homemade treats can be the most thoughtful and successful.  It can take a little time but your recipient will appreciate the personal touch and it can save you a little money.

1. Chocolate Pretzel bites.  Recipe is here. To add a festive twist, use seasonal color M&Ms and hershey kisses.  My personal favorites are the white chocolate peppermint kisses.  Put in a nice jar and add a bow.
