Wow, what a great thread! I love all the little treats!
My guilty from-childhood pleasure : pb & brown sugar sandwiches! I know, I know...but the sugar gets a little melty...yum. I also love to put a blob of pb in a bowl and cover it with a bit of honey or maple syrup.
Unfortunately my (DH's) family is a bit snobbish when it comes to gift giving. Unless my daughter made it, homemade gifts are just "Oh, thanks....." No one in my family, except my husband's aunt, likes my cakes either. I've been told by non-family I should start a bakery, so I'm not bad at it. I suggested to do a funny/gag gift exchange, it was immediately shot down. We have a white elephant with a $25 per person minimum.
Wish I lived near my mom's family, they would love these kind of gifts!
Thanks for the youtube movie on fruit bouquets, I'm going to have to try one of those! And maybe I'll ship some gifts off to some family that'll appreciate it! Or maybe I'll just eat them all myself!
Definitely trying the vanilla!
