Cashew Clusters

Requiring only three ingredients, this sweet and salty snack proves that you don’t need to spend a lot of time or money on making gifts. The hardest part will be giving it away — it's dangerously addicting.

Salted Caramel-Bourbon Sauce

People love salted caramel, whether it’s poured over ice cream or mixed into brownies. And while a homemade batch would make anyone happy this holiday season, a bourbon-infused jarful takes the already impressive present to a whole new level.

Mini Apple-Cranberry Loaves

Make mini quick bread loaves and square away three gifts with one batch. To make things even easier, use disposable pans so the loaves are nearly ready to gift straight from the oven — they'll still need to cool, of course.

Mocha Truffles

As far as host and hostess gifts go, you can’t go wrong with chocolate. Sure, you could buy a fancy (and pricey) box, but homemade truffles make the gift more thoughtful.

Pistachio-Orange Chocolate Coins

Making your own candy can be as simple as melting chocolate in the microwave. As the chocolate cools, add fun toppings. For a tried-and-true combination, go with pistachio and candied orange peel — it’s just as delicious as it is elegant.
