Edible Gifts For Christmas

Hasn’t Christmas come around so quickly this year? I know all the advertising kicks off as soon as the summer sales have finished but I cannot believe we have just this weekend left to buy gifts.  Our list always includes edibles – some shop bought and some home made.  Here is some inspiration if you’re drawing a blank.  Just click the image for the recipe.

I still miraculously have a few blackberries at the allotment but there are plenty on the supermarket shelves too.

Coffee and Hazelnut Biscotti

A classic combination and a gift that lasts for ages. To get a strong coffee flavour try Black Sheep Coffee.

Chocolate and Beetroot Truffles

I planted some beetroot to last over the winter so this one is a quick and easy gift as well as a homegrown one.

Salted Caramel Dipping Sauce

This has Christmas written all over it. Could be a good way to eat up that leftover Christmas Pudding?

Clementine and Glitter Powder

This is Christmas in a jar. Adding a little sparkle of edible glitter gives this magical powder a seasonal lift. Sprinkle on soups, cakes and cappuccinos.

Apple Rings

There are so many apples on the market stall and this is an easy and healthy Christmas gift that could be combined with granola for the health conscious in your family.
