Baking

These Mini Banana Bundt Cakes with Chocolate Drizzle by @fareisle make the sweetest gifts.  If you don't have a mini Bundt pan, you could bake these in cupcake trays and package them in individual treat boxes.

Confections


Candy making doesn't have to be difficult.  Whether you are a pro at caramel, or just a beginner, we have wonderful recipes for everyone! We love these Peppermint Meltaways by @Now_forager  because they have just four ingredients, and only take a few minutes to prepare.  They're also adorable when dusted with powdered sugar snow!

Kids will love these Snowmen Marshmallows by  @iamafoodblog that will melt before their eyes when added to cocoa.  Package them with homemade hot cocoa mix and individual hot chocolate spoons (see below)!
