Here are 5 homemade treats that are perfect for gifting to your favourite people. Chocolate is involved!
Is there anything more personal than a homemade gift? It’s easy to spend money and buy something from the store but if someone gives you something that they have made themselves, it’s so special.
Homemade gifts don’t have to be complicated. Here are 5 that are super easy and they involve chocolate.
This has been a favourite since I was little. I remember my dad finding a recipe in the newspaper and trying it out at home. Only 2 ingredients make this delicious treat – chocolate chips and almonds. That’s it! Everything is made in the microwave so it’s even easy for little ones to help with this treat.
Roast 1 cup of almonds in the microwave on high for 2 – 2.5 minutes. Melt 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave at 30 second intervals. Once melted, add the nuts and spread out on to parchment. Break into pieces and wrap. If you want to add a touch of saltiness, sprinkle with Maldon salt.
Chocolate Coated Pretzel Sticks
This can’t get any easier. Take a pretzel rod, dip in melted chocolate and top with sprinkles. Super easy and so festive.
Melt 1/2 cup of chocolate wafers in the microwave on high in 30 second intervals. Once melted, dip the pretzel rods and top with sprinkles.
