Friday Favorites: DIY Edible Holiday Gifts

As someone on a tight budget, I like to make some of my Christmas gifts.  The holidays are a great time to give indulgent food, because hey, we're all breaking our diet anyway, right?  And we can fix all of that holiday weight gain come New Year's Day.  Isn't that the whole idea of resolutions?


Homemade White Cake Mix
This cake mix is super easy, and with some added ingredients and
experimentation you could make it your own.  Find a fun jar and include
the instructions on some holiday paper!


Cranberry Infused Vodka
This one's just for the grown-ups!  Again, super easy and customizeable.
Pretty bottles are easy to come by, and you could even use a fun vintage
one if you wanted to splurge a bit.


Candied Bacon Fudge
Perfect for the hipster in your life.  While this seems grotesque to me,
bacon is the rage amongst the 20-30 hipster crowd, and they like their
bacon weird.  So have at it and give the kids what they like!


Flavored and Spiced Coffee Mixes
Toffee coffee, Bavarian mint, cinnamon spice and more!  This would be
a great gift with a nice mug and maybe a homemade coaster.  I really like
this one, who can I give this to?


Cinnamon Toast White Chocolate Pretzels
These look delicious and so easy to make, using only your microwave!
They're a nice twist on the traditional chocolate dipped pretzel.


Spicy Herb Roasted Nuts
Here's a savory treat to make for your loved ones. These can be
stored in the freezer for people who are overloaded with tasty gifts.
