Day 2 – 12 Best Homemade Christmas Food Gifts
Cincy Shopper ~ Homemade Peanut Brittle
This Homemade Peanut Brittle only takes 7-ingredients, one pot, and a baking sheet! It’s such an easy treat to prepare, but oh so tasty!
Kleinworth & Co. ~ Chocolate Chip Red Velvet Mini Loaves
Red velvet cake is one of my favorite cakes ever! And Gina at Kleinworth & Co. made it even better by adding chocolate chips and a sweet glaze – yummiliciousness!
The Kolb Corner ~ Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bundt Cake
Did you say dark chocolate and peppermint? I can’t think of any better combo that chocolate and peppermint for the holiday season. But what makes this even better….it’s made with cake mix and pudding for a super moist cake that easy to make!
My Pinterventures ~ Dried Fruit & Nut Clusters
Skip the fruitcake and go for this dried fruit and nut clusters instead. The combination possibilities are endless and you can customize the fruits and nuts to suit just about anyone. Oh, and did I mention these make great on-the-go treats too?!

I haven’t met a Chex mix that I haven’t liked and this one is no exception. It’s the perfect sweet-n-salty mix with a peppermint twist!
