Perfect DIY Gift for Drop in House Guests

I subscribe to the philosophy that homemade gifts of food are always a good idea.  I wanted to make something simple to have on hand for friends and neighbors that drop by.  My solution – Chocolate covered peppermint Joe Joes with a crushed candy cane topping!
Easy DIY Christmas Holiday Gift for Guests
They were fairly easy and inexpensive to make!  I placed the finished cookies in a cellophane bag, tied it with a bow and adorned them with a gift tag from my Etsy Shop!

Material Needed:
- Peppermint Joe Joes (from Trader Joe’s or Oreos)
- Chocolate Chips
- Candy Cane Pieces (crush with a hammer)
- Parchment Paper
- Cellophane Bag & Ribbon

Directions: Melt the chocolate, dip the cookie, sprinkle the candy cane topping and place to dry on parchment paper


I look forward to handing these out to friends and family!  Do you have any easy recipes or gift ideas that you keep on hand during the holidays?
