Quick Gifts from the Kitchen

I was asked a couple times at church today for quick gift ideas from the kitchen. So, I thought I’d round up the ones I have already talked about on the House of Hills and put them in one place for your convenience.


A note about this recipe: My cousin was just talking about these on Facebook and she uses candy wafers from the craft store instead of Hershey Kisses. Brilliant!! I say. No unwrapping!



All of these are quick to make, not too expensive, and easy to package. You can put large quantities in containers like those above. You can have your kids decorate white or brown lunch snacks with Christmas images and then put a baggie inside. OR, you can package your goodies individually like I did below.

What are some of your favorite holiday treats to give as gifts?



  1. I make a similar treat pretzel, only I use white chocolate wafers (in holiday colors) and dark chocolate M&M’s. They all look so yummy

    • That sounds yummy too! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hey … I made it into the blog! πŸ™‚

    • Because you are BRILLIANT!

  3. Thank you Kathy! I look forward to baking/making some goodies this week. You are sweet to share your recipes! Jessica Alvir

    • Made this list just for you girl. πŸ™‚

  4. Your Grandma would be so excited about your cooking/baking expertise! I am pretty proud of you myself.

  5. I’ve made the pretzels treats, but make them with Rolo candies, then place a pecan half on top when the chocolate has been melted a little in the oven. Tastes like a turtle (the candy, not the animal).

    • I did some last night with the Rolos – SO Good!!!
