Edible gifts

presentpase-kolor

I made a lot of candy and cookies for the holidays, and gave as gifts. Caramels and candy usually gets wrapped individually and tied, then stuck in a small cellophane bag. My favorite ideas this year was cookie holders made from Pringle (potato chips) tubes though - perfect! Especially since my husband happens to love Pringles and was more than happy to eat a few tubes to give me the empties. I cleaned them, and covered in pretty paper. Make sure you choose fairly sturdy cookies though! And sorry for the blurry photo - it was really dark.

Here's a list of some cookies that would be suitable for this kind of packaging - they need to be pretty sturdy and not too easily breakable:

-Spicy Chocolate Cookies with candied Ginger
-Chocolate Chai Snickerdoodles
-Team Cookies
-Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies
-Coffee Latte Cookies
-Phoebe's Fabulous Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

Great idea! Thanks! As we also love Pringles, I'll for sure remember that idea, too.

By the way, I just read you've choosen Årstiderna for a vegetable delivery box. They just sponsored the latest meeting of our cooking group. It was really good quality. I guess, you won't regret your choice.

Amazing, did it some time ago with savory stuff, and pickled it, or some chillies and similar. Will have to try the sweet stuff too :)

I made your Chocolate Chai Snickerdoodles as part of my Christmas goodie baskets and everyone raved about them!
