Friendly Holiday Goodie Gifts

As you can tell I have been posting many little bite-size snacks and dessert treats lately. 

And that’s becauseI love to indulge in them 🙂

But also because I made up treat tins for my close neighbors and friends. 

Here is what they received:

While 4 lbs. of tomatillos only made 6 jars of Santa Salsa, I could not give the salsa to everyone that I gave the treat tins too.  Shucks!  Wish I had made more.  But there is this thing called time that I don’t seem to have enough of.

I packed each treat seperately in a cute little bag with twist tie as I didn’t want to put them in the same tin without being bagged up.  That would have made the peanut butter taste like peppermint peanut butter.  Ick.  Maybe I shouldn’t knock it, I’ve never tried peppermint peanut butter.   Have you?

Sorry for the poor light quality.  It was midnight and I was in the kitchen working 🙂

I found some cute holiday recipe cards, wrote out all the items they were receiving and added it to the top of their treat tin.  As well as a link to where they could find these fabulous recipes at. 

All in, I spent 12 hours in the kitchen making, packaging and preparing these treat tins for my friends and neighbors.  So I hope they appreciated my homemade gift!

And the morning I delivered all these goodies; we had a fresh snow fall of 4 inches.  A perfect addition to my holiday giving mood!

If only I would have had a sleigh~~~

 

What is a homemade gift that you would like to receive this year?

Cheers~
