A Christmas gift means just that little bit more when it comes from the heart. It’s a lovely gesture (and not to mention really low cost) to whip up and batch of cookies, maybe some homemade fudge or truffles and gift wrap them really nicely.
Here’s our favourite homemade edible gifts this Christmas.
Christmas spiced truffles recipe from John Lewis
These super simple truffles are Christmassy, decadent and the recipe makes 50 so with some fab packaging that’s five quick and easy gifts right there!
Peppermint bark recipe from The Mad House
Deliciously simple recipe combining candy canes, the best quality dark chocolate, double cream and delicious white chocolate to form this three layer peppermint bark. This is a super pretty gift and just needs packaging in a glass jar with stylish bow and tag.
Stained glass window cookies from ET Speaks from Home
These gorgeous little sweet treats are basically sun-catcher cookies. Delicious cookie dough with a ‘window’ of melted crushed boiled sweets. Lovely and festive and would make a super gift packaged in little bags tied up with ribbons.
Homemade chocolate spoons from Blue Bear Wood
I love these little chocolate spoons. Super easy and a great cost effective way of making lots of gifts on a small budget. Simply wrapped in cellophane tied with ribbon.
Christmas pudding fudge from Thinly Spread
This is a gift I’m not sure I could bring myself to actually give! A recipe that definitely needs two batches making just to be sure one leaves the house! Creamy rich fudge jumbled with fruit and chocolate and decorated with gold shimmer spray and stars. It’s shouts Christmas.
Easy 2 ingredient fudge from Eats Amazing
Beautifully simple recipe, one to keep in mind for last minute gifts. Simple to make and can be easily decorated with the topping of your choice to make it just a little bit more special.
The edible gift recipes below are really nice ones to get the kids involved in making. Great as teacher and grandparent gifts!
Easy reindeer cookies from The Mad House
This simple recipe uses a gingerbread man cutter upside down to create fab reindeer. Brilliant fun for kids to make and cute gift wrapped for friends.
Peppermint creams from Thinly Spread
One of the easiest gifts for children to make as there’s no actual cooking involved – just mixing and kneading – think of it as edible playdoh great for toddlers to join in with. Super sweet in mini gift boxes.
DIY wrapped chocolate from In the Playroom
Super easy – think of this more as a bit of a creative wrapping session that ends in beautifully personalised little token gifts. Kids love to do this and love the excitement of wrapping something up extra specially for someone they love. Too cute!
