If you have a list of people you’d like to give a “little something to” this holiday season, the Holiday Treats Kit is an ideal solution. Inside this package you’ll find everything you need to cook up some delicious baked goods and supplies to wrap them up perfectly.

Inside of the kit’s lil’ recipe book, food categories include candies, cookies, and quick treats.Recipes for lollipops, peanut adaptations and caramels are good ideas for food to have out if you decided to be risky and have a holiday gathering.

Over in the cookie section, I was super excited to find a recipe for basic sugar cookie dough. Of all the recipes I have, a good mix for sugar cookies is one I didn’t.

Under quick treats, the chocolate peanut butter spread would look really nice in a repurposed jar tied with vintage ribbon. And speaking of packaging your homemade treats, the kit comes with two different kinds of small snack bags, gift tags, two different types of ribbon and even gift seals. As you’re going through the recipe book, you’ll find wrapping/packaging suggetions, too, in case your wrapping-challenged.

Baked goods are a perfect way to show that you’re thinking of all your loved ones, including their blood-sugar levels.
