You may have already caught the last two days of this annual event, which were all about handmade gifts and handmade Christmas decor, but if not you can start here at Just JP; there are tons of fantastic ideas for you to check out! Today is the third and final day of the hop and it is all about holiday food to serve or give.
There is an awesome Handmade Holidays Giveaway at the end of this post, don’t miss it!
Now onto one of my favorite foods to give at the holidays!
Cinnamon honey butter – it’s the perfect confection to make for neighbors, friends and family for the holidays. It’s quick and easy to prepare, and everyone always loves it and asks me for the recipe, a win-win!
(I’ve attached a printable recipe for you at the end :))
Just four simple ingredients – softened butter, confectioner’s sugar, honey and cinnamon.
Whip them all into a frenzy for a minute or so, then scrape the bowl with a rubber spatula to make sure you got all that yummy goodness at the bottom of the bowl.
4 oz. glass mason jars are perfect for your butter. I love the fancy diamond quilted ones for gift giving!
Use two spoons to scrape the butter into the jars. I find that 5 jars are perfect for an almost-full jar.
This makes a lovely gift for neighbors or friends, especially with baked goods! Buy fresh croissants at your local bakery or favorite grocery store, wrap them up in cellophane bags, and tuck the cinnamon butter in next to them.
I adore this fabric basket that a friend gave me and now I’m passing on the love to someone else. The size and shape of this basket make it perfect for packing food gifts.
If you’re going to be an overnight guest this Thanksgiving or Christmas, consider giving your hosts a breakfast basket complete with cinnamon honey butter, croissants or scones, and the fixings of breakfast beverages like coffee, tea and cocoa.
See how easy cinnamon honey butter is to make? And it is very happily received too! I hope you try it and save some for yourself. Give it a go on an ordinary Nutrigrain waffle, oh so good!
