Robyn's Candied Orange Peel
"Candied orange peels are perfect for rounding out a cookie tray or wrapping up by the dozen for a twee candy box for that special someone. They're just what the Doctor ordered for midnight munchies when you're up late baking cookies. Not to mention you could add them into other recipes as well. And if these suggestions aren't what you're looking for they keep for a couple of weeks in an airtight container until you make up your mind."—Robyn F.
Laura's Microwave Biscoff Fudge
"One of my favorite treats is Microwave Biscoff Fudge. Not only is it super easy to make, but everyone who tries it goes crazy for it, grabbing piece after piece. It's the perfect gift for everyone on your holiday list!"—Laura D.
"This year, I made kruidnoten (or speculoos/speculaas buttons) that I first tried when visiting friends around the early-December Sinterklaas holiday. They have a gentle spice and molasses - like the Lotus biscuits you used to get on airlines. They last several weeks in an airtight container."—Gayle S.
Amy's Candied Pecans
"These candied pecans are a permanent fixture in my house. I buy several 2 pound bags of pecan halves from Costco and spend a week making them for Thanksgiving and then holiday gifts. I've never gotten any complaints! Best straight from the oven, sure...but they don't disappoint even cool. They're even good a month later, IF they last that long."—Amy F.
Sara's Fig-Balsamic Jam
"This not-too-sweet jam is fantastic with cheese and crackers. Here, I served it with a creamy blue cheese, and the two were a perfect pairing. Anyone would love to receive a jar as a holiday gift (if you can part with any!)."—Sara C.
Amy's Brandied Cherries
"These started as brandied cherries, though these days I generally use rye and sometimes do not pit the cherries."—Amy C.
Miranda's Rosemary Pine Nut Brittle
"A modern twist on an old-fashioned favorite—Rosemary Pine Nut Brittle!"—Miranda L.
Kelly's Homemade Lollipops
"Homemade Holiday Lollipops are the ultimate edible gift to give or get, and they're made with just three ingredients. Their crystal clear color makes them the perfect canvas for adding custom garnishes, such as festive sprinkles, crushed candy canes or chopped nuts. Best of all, the lollipops will last up to two weeks when stored in a cool, dry place, which means it's never been easier to give the gift of good taste (literally)."—Kelly S.
