Favorite Food Gifts (That Aren’t Cookies)

Easy food gifts that aren't cookies!

Don’t get me wrong–I love cookies as much as the next person. But maybe your office has been inundated with cookies, or maybe your neighbor has confessed that she just doesn’t get excited about them. For those of you stuck in an anti-cookie quandry, look no further! Here are five really easy edible gifts:

Edible Food Gifts for the Holidays (That Aren't Cookies!):

Ah yes, my absolute favorite holiday snack: Chex mix! This is my mom’s recipe, which gets rave reviews from everyone we know. My stomach actually just growled thinking about it. This recipe makes A LOT of Chex mix, so you’ll have plenty to pass around.

Edible Food Gifts for the Holidays (That Aren't Cookies!): Hot Chocolate

This decadent hot chocolate is so easy to make and share. Just combine the ingredients and put them in pretty jars! I’m sending mine with packets of gourmet marshmallows this year.

Edible Food Gifts for the Holidays (That Aren't Cookies!): Cranberry Bars

These cranberry bars are hearty enough for breakfast but so craveable that I like them as a mid-afternoon treat too. Plus that, they’re really simple to make!

Edible Food Gifts for the Holidays (That Aren't Cookies!): Apple Butter

Chunky apple butter in a glass jar with some biscuits from the bakery? That’s my kind of Christmas delivery.

Edible Food Gifts for the Holidays (That Aren't Cookies!): Butter Mochi

For gluten-free friends, butter mochi is a sweet treat that doesn’t allow for any flour-longings. Gluten-full friends won’t miss it either. I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t enjoy this sticky butter “pound cake” of the islands.

There you have it. Now I’m really hungry, so I’m off to whip up an edible gift–for me!

    Wonderful ideas! I LOVE that fabric in which you tied up your gift (bento-box style) in the first photo. Can you tell us the brand/where you purchased it? Thank you!

    • Thanks, Bernie! The fabric is a napkin from West Elm. Unfortunately, I bought it years ago, but I’m always finding good ones there!
