I like making Cakes in a jar, homemade hot cocoa mix, peppermint bark, buckeye cookies, and just good ol' sugar cookies.  If you want info on any of those let me know and I'll give ya some links!

homemade english toffee. it's a fair amount of work (not hard, just a bit fussy and time consuming) but wow, so worth it!!!!

martha stewart has a great recipe, i've used it and it was SO good it was unbelievable. my only recommendation is to use a really shallow large pan so that the toffee isn't too thick, and hard on your teeth to eat.

Hey, one year I made some really good toffee out of soda crackers and chocolate chips. It was very easy. I'm sure you can google the recipe.  Of course I'm sure it was not as good as the real thing that Laureg made, but it was REALLY easy and really cheap paired with really fast.

buckeye cookies...my god, I haven't eaten those since I was a little kid; I loved them.

Another good holiday treat is chocolate covered pretzels. They come out really pretty/festive and are so good (i.e. I can eat massive quantities of them in one sitting). They look great placed in a jar and wrapped with ribbon. Here's a link to something similar although these are really decadent. http://www.detnews.com/2002/food/0203/25/c08w-439952.htm. You can get pretty creative with them. Here's another link for actual instructions. http://www.favoritebrandrecipes.com/Recipes/060/1219311060.htm

One of my holiday favourites (actually, they're good anytime!) is Sugared Pecans.  It's real simple and always welcome (unless the recipient is allergic to nut products) in the food baskets I create.  I also like sending out PB filled chocolate cookies.  The combination of chocolate and PB is divine!  You could probably find recipes online for them.  If you'd like a copy of the recipes I have, just pm me Smiley

loves2experiement, you just reminded me of one of my most favorite treats...sweet & spicy pecans. I'll dig the recipe up and post it soon. They are the usual sugared pecans with an underlying subtle heat from cayenne pepper. Delicious and unique.
