So go ahead, borrow these ideas for making presents from scratch that your friends and family will covet…and likely request next year. Want to make them even more fetching and festive? We’ve got printer-ready gift tags. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
Who could possibly say no when offered one of these homemade and inebriating edibles? Certainly not us.
Apple Cider Caramels
The 8th wonder of the world? These insanely satiating caramels made simply with apple cider, sugar, and spice.
Hoosier Sugar Cream Pie
Strange how such a sweetly stunning sensation can be just sugar, cream, flour, and vanilla. Couldn't be easier—or more enticing.
Candy Cane Bark
It’s the most wonderful time of the year thanks in no small part to candy canes everywhere—even in this chocolate bark.
Meyer Lemon Syrup
Luscious as caramel yet simple as simple syrup, this Meyer lemon syrup has a very giftable sweet tart lemon thing going on.
Chocolate-Bourbon Banana Bread
This life-changer of a recipe isn't your mom's banana bread. It's better. And we've got no qualms saying that.
Chocolate Bark, Cardamom, Dried Fruits, and Nuts
There's chocolate bark and then there's chocolate bark. This bark is the latter sort, a sort that intrigues and surprises, that both starts and stops conversations, a bark that knows no boundaries.
Spruce Needle Vodka
Last-minute gift, anyone? Repurpose your Christmas tree by infusing vodka with a sprig or three. A celebratory and cinch of a project that extends the Christmas spirit--and spirits.
Pine Nut Brittle
Crunchy, sweet, salty, buttery, and nutty all in one. And it comes together in just 30 minutes, which makes it quite practical to toss together batch after batch for gifts if, like us, you get a little carried away with sampling.
Bacon. Bourbon. Boom. The smokiness of cured pork lends its subtle loveliness to the South's smoothest booze.
