Father’s Day is quickly approaching; if you’re running out of options and can’t bear the thought of giving dad another tie, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve gathered some of our favorite giftable bites that you can easily make for Father’s Day. Dad will be impressed (and delighted!) with just one of these, but you can go above and beyond and turn a few of these snacks into a homemade gift basket.

Nothing says “I love you, Dad” like an edible bouquet of these easy-to-make pizza roses. Store-bought pizza dough makes this adorable present totally doable.

Boardwalk-style fudge will bring back sweet memories of summers past with each bite. This homemade fudge will keep for about a week in the fridge, but we’d be surprised if it lasted that long!

Another pantry-perfect present, this snack mix is for the dad who likes savory more than sweet. Kick up the spice factor with a sprinkle of cayenne when you’re mixing in the rest of the seasonings.
