Or another variation on this is Peppermint Sticks. Both would be easy to make and remind me of this.
Another easy homemade gift idea is to dip anything edible in to melted chocolate. You could use dried apricots or any dried fruit for that matter, almonds, pears, pineapple, marshmallows, or pretzels. The possibilities are endless! You could even use a spoon.
Whether you are buying gifts, making gifts, or baking gifts I hope you are having a happy holiday season!
