Edible Birthday Gifts Ideas
Birthday gifts are a great way to celebrate that special day, but many times it can be tough to decide just what to get for the recipient. When in doubt, consider something homemade! Edible homemade treats can be the perfect gift to give on your friend’s or family member’s birthday.
Here are a few ideas to try out:
Chocolate-Covered Chips & Pretzels
If you’ve never combined sweet and salty, you’re missing out! Dunking some potato chips or pretzels into melted chocolate can be the most delectable treat you can make. For this creation, all you need to do is melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave or on the stove top, dip your pretzels or chips into the melted chocolate, then let them cool and harden on a piece of wax paper. If you want to add some colour, you can even add some multi-coloured sprinkles before the chocolate hardens.
One of the biggest trends in the world of sweets are cake pops. They’re basically like a glorified donut hole. They’re tasty, look great, and are simple to make. All you need to do is mix cooked cake with your favourite frosting and form them into balls. Add a stick to them, and decorate any way you like, including dipping them in chocolate, adding frosting stripes, or sprinkles and bows.
A party mix can be a great gift, particularly the homemade kind. The great thing about homemade snack mixes is that you can vary up the recipe each time! For instance, for friends and family who enjoy spicy foods, you can add chili powder to the mix. For those who love chocolate, you can include chocolate pieces like M&Ms, Smarties or just chocolate chips or M&Ms. Add a few nuts, pretzels, and dried fruits, and mix them together. Package them in a decorative container to also be part of the gift.
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
It’s an oldie, but a goodie. Chocolate-dipped strawberries are as gorgeous as they taste. Simply dip fresh strawberries into melted chocolate and allow them to cool on wax paper. You can even use other fresh fruit, like bananas or pineapple.
