Moore’s Edible Holiday Gifts
This holiday season show your loved ones just how much you care for them by gifting them with a delicious, homemade treat. After all, we all know the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach! Preparing large batches of treats to share may sound like a daunting task, but don’t worry, the recipes we’ve rounded up are simple and straightforward.
Rather than baking up a sweet treat, add #MooreFlavor by taking a savory approach with these three recipes. The holidays always bring a wealth of cookies, cakes and pies, so your friends and family will welcome a salty treat. Not only are these holiday snacks quick and easy to make, but they’re also a low-cost gift option.
Once you’ve chosen your recipe, get creative with how you package them. For instance, consider presenting the Moore’s Savory and Spicy Holiday Nuts or Moore’s Roasted Pecans in a mason jar with a festive bow. Place Moore’s Buffalo Cheese Straws in a cute holiday tin or a clear bag with a holiday ribbon. Happy baking!
