Hey Friends! How’s it goin?
I’m back in Trinidad today and I’m so freaking excited. When this post goes live I’ll be hanging out with friends and family and having a grand old time. Okay- I’ll probably be sleeping but I can hope.
I’m not sure whether or not I’ve mentioned this before, but I hate shopping when there are large crowds so hitting the malls this close to the big day would not be ideal. Usually, I’m a terrible sibling/relative and don’t get gifts for most of my family because I can’t stand holiday shopping.
But this year, I decided to attempt giving edible gifts, especially after I made the peppermint chocolate covered pretzels and then the gingerbread spiced roasted nuts. I know I could have bought stuff before I left, but presents for all my family would never be able to fit in my suitcase on account of all the gym clothes.
At first I was only going to make insanely large batched of the two, but then I saw some other festive snacks floating around the interwebs and decided I wanted to try those as well.

I love giving edible gifts! My cousins and I have made candy since we were little, and now it has become a staple in my gift giving routine, especially for those hard-to-buy-for people like bosses and boys. Great roundup!

Who doesn’t love getting treats for Christmas?! I usually make a large patch of chocolate covered pretzels and strawberries the night before a Christmas party. I’m for sure going to try some of these recipes this year.
