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!
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!
- 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?
