Skip the standard box of chocolates and make your own batch of infused hot chocolate, steamy spiked cider or creatively flavoured butters for gifting
Citrus-cranberry kiss and dark chocolate sea salt butters make delicious DIY gifts for foodies
These delicious DIY gifts can be customized to co-workers’ tastes or brought along to a party to help a hostess out. Not only are they easy, but most can be made with items you probably already have on hand.
The best way to package these is in a good ol’ Mason jar, which you can find at the dollar store in a variety of sizes. Finish them with a bow and you’re good to go!
Note: All of these recipes can be easily multiplied to give you a higher yield.
Purchasing presentable boxes of holiday chocolates for friends and co-workers can really start to add up. This equally indulgent alternative is as sweet a gesture to your peers as it is to your piggy bank.
Keeps for: 1 week, refrigerated
Instead of toting a bottle of wine along to your next holiday party, why not bring something every guest will get to enjoy and the host will be sure to remember?
The addition of fresh ginger and black peppercorns gives this cider added warmth. The rum kick makes it a celebratory yet soothing night cap.
Tip: Pressed apple juice gives this cider a wholesome, rustic flavour and deep amber colouring. You can find it in the refrigerated juice section.
Keeps for: 2 weeks, refrigerated
Everyday ingredients combine to make these extraordinary butters. Their flavour will brighten up any baked good, from crunchy toast to fresh scones.
Note: For butter to soften you can leave it out overnight. However, 2 hours should do the trick.
Honey adds a soft sweetness and makes these flavour-packed butters smooth and spreadable.
