Snacks: The 12 Days of Holiday Food Gifts


1 Comment

Aside from the usual visions of sugar plums that dance in our heads this time of year, the holidays probably evoke images of cookie platters, candy canes, or tables laden with home-cooked feasts. Most of us are so focused on dinner and dessert that we forget about those in-between times when guests, friends and family members lounge around the fire, drinking tea and chatting as the snow falls thickly outside. But what fun are fireside chats without something to nibble on?

From popcorn to granola to bright crimson fruit leather, these homemade snacks are perfect for curling up with a book, taking a snowy hike, or those long afternoon hours between hot cocoa and cocktails.They’re also especially wonderful gifts for people too busy this time of year to make treats for themselves!

Come back tomorrow for candied holiday gifts, and check out our other food gift roundups – from chocolate to baked goods to fermented foods.
