Easy Homemade Food Gifts

I love giving and receiving food gifts. They represent something made with love. They negate clutter. They're yummy in the tummy. And they can be ridiculously easy to make, which means you can also involve your kids in the process! We’re in the final holiday stretch so I wanted to share 10 easy DIY food gifts. They're perfect for spreading thoughtful holiday cheer while not laying too heavily into your time or wallet.

1. This yummy looking chocolate bark from Savory Sweet Life only requires two ingredients. Sweet!

6. Continuing the jar theme from All Recipes, you might want to gift this just because it's called Cranberry Hootycreeks. If you'd prefer assembling less ingredients, try these chocolate chip cookies.

7. This chocolate chunk hot cocoa from Real Simple is simple yet special feeling.

10. I hadn't heard of White Christmas until Sharon at Umommy shared it with me. Four ingredients culminate in a new addiction, apparently!
