Chocolate Christmas Gifts
My favorite Christmas gifts are chocolate. I have had a life long love affair with this tasty treat. I have never had a chocolate that I didnít like.
I received a lot of Christmas gifts last year, but my favorites were chocolate. My husband was right on the mark when he bought me a tin of Mrs. Fields cookies and brownies. I served them at a tea party I had on Christmas Eve.
I have given my little sister some wonderful chocolate Christmas gifts over the years. She loves chocolate as much as me. Last year, I sent her dessert bars in three flavors: chewy fudge, zesty lemon and raspberry blueberry currant.
My boss appreciates Christmas gifts from employees even though she doesnít celebrate Christmas. She likes chocolate, so I sent her Turtle Bars from Solomonís Gourmet Cookies. She is Jewish and these treats were certified Kosher by the Chicago Rabbinical Council.
I sent my cousins containers of brownies for Christmas gifts year before last. They are still talking about them. Each tin had a pound and a half of brownies that were the richest tasting brownies that they had ever eaten.
Finding exceptional chocolate recipes has been a challenge. I like to order from online companies when I am sending Christmas gifts because they do all of the shipping for me. For people in the same geographical area as me, I like to make chocolate creations in my own kitchen.
I have Christmas gifts on my mind starting in late October. I make lists of who I want to give chocolate gifts to and what they might like. I have made biscotti for neighbors a few times and I like the way it comes out.
Biscotto makes great Christmas gifts. A good biscotti recipe is not very sweet and compliments coffee or tea. I have found that chocolate biscotto pleases just about every palate! It seems like most of my friends enjoy biscotti with gourmet coffee.
My sister had a Christmas Day wedding about ten years ago. I decided that one of her Christmas gifts from me was going to be the groomís cake for her wedding. I made her a chocolate cheesecake with molded chocolate roses.
My niece shares my love of chocolate. She gave me a list of Christmas gifts she wanted the year she was ten and I just had to laugh out loud. She had listed twenty different things and half of them were chocolate!
hosted the family for Christmas dinner last year. After we opened our Christmas gifts, I served a gourmet chocolate mousse for dessert. I had worked perfecting it for the occasion and everyone loved it.
I do think that making extra Christmas gifts comes in handy when you have a lot of visitors during December. I make up a batch of chocolate Christmas candies and have them already wrapped to give to people that drop by. I think that maybe some people just drop by my house during the holidays because they know that they will get some yummy chocolate to eat.
