I promised I would share a homemade hostess gift idea with you. My daughter and I made these vegan chocolate macaroons recently to bring to a Christmas party. Actually, I measured out the ingredients, but she was able to do most of the work. So, if you are looking for a way to bring your kids into the kitchen without too much fuss, this is it!
I bagged up the macaroons in a plastic bag that I bought at a bulk foods store, and tied it closed with a ribbon. I also brought a bag of Christmas-coloured candy for the kids of the house.
You could also give some candy in one of these cute, tree-shaped glass jars. I got this at the bulk foods store too.
I had to tilt the candy to one side for the photos, since my daughter has been covertly nibbling away at them for days. I told her they were for a photo, but I guess the temptation was too strong. I understand, because I started eating them right after I took the pictures!
What are you bringing for hostess gifts this year?
