Every year, I find myself wanting to add a little something ‘extra’ to some of my Christmas gifts. I love making homemade gifts, and somehow I always end up choosing super easy chocolate ones.
And when I say easy, I really mean easy.
So today I decided to do something a little different with this round-up of some of my favourite bloggers’ easy peasy homemade chocolate gifts. I included one or two slightly more involved recipes, just because they were so beautiful, but most of these can be made in barely more than 15 minutes.
what I usually do is package my chocolate gifts in a simple cellophane gift bag and tie it up with a pretty ribbon and gift tag. Goes down well every time!
1 First up is one from Yours Truly – beautifully simple chocolate rocks. Just stir nuts into chocolate, drop onto baking paper and leave to set.
Trust me, you could make these with your eyes closed!
2 Second are some very Christmas-y no bake peanut butter balls from the wonderful Meggan at Culinary Hill. I guess you could give them as they are or make them into snowmen like in this gorgeous picture:
3 Next are these simple chocolate ganache truffles from Nagi at Recipe Tin Eats. Now Nagi is one special gal. I guarantee this is a good recipe, because every one this girl posts is nothing short of top class. And look at this beauty of a photo!
4 Allie from Baking a Moment NEVER fails to impress me with her beautiful baking creations. Who wouldn’t want to receive these raspberry meringue sandwiches with whipped dark chocolate ganache filling as a gift?
8 Now for one of my favourite chocolate Christmas gift ideas from one of my favourite bloggers. It’s Naughty and Nice cookies from the hilarious Lorraine at Not Quite Nigella. She’s a talented cook, storyteller and photographer and you can always rely on her to come up with something a bit different.
12 Oh, OK then. One more from me. Just in case you missed it, I recently posted this super easy peanut butter cups recipe. Pile them into a jar, tie with a ribbon, and you’ve got a perfect little last-minute gift.
