Nothing says “love” like a gift made with your own hands (and possibly baked in the oven.)

The peanut brittle, m&m bars, chocolate bark, olive oil and maple granola, herbed nuts, and chocolate crinkle cookies taste as good as they look (if not better) and they’re perfect for gift giving and sure to add holiday cheer!
