Working on a Christmas gift idea



Between now and Christmas Mom and I will try to make some of these snacks and sweets as a Christmas gift for our family (none of them read this blog, btw, so I'm not spoiling the surprise here).  We want to bundle these up in festive, little packages, throw them all together into a big gift basket, and then let our relatives divide them up however they like. 

I have a feeling these will go over pretty well, because my aunt always gets stuff like this from specialty stores for family get-togethers, and while we can't exactly afford to buy these at a fancy store like that, we figure we may as well try to make them instead!  But whether or not we succeed in baking these is another matter; we do have a Christmas Gift Plan B in case of utter failure: Gift Cards.
