Quick and Easy Holiday Party Favors or Gifts

Here’s an simple way to make cute favors for a holiday party. These
candy-filled cookie cutters also make charming, yet inexpensive,
Christmas gifts.

You’ll need some holiday cookie cutters in a variety of shapes, candy
melts in different flavors and colors (available from stores that carry
candy making supplies) or baking chips in several flavors (peanut
butter, milk-chocolate, mint, white chocolate, etc.), colored sprinkles,
colored sugar, clear cello bags, gold twist ties or colored ribbon.

First, line a large cookie sheet or jellyroll pan with a silicone baking mat
or parchment paper. Set the cookie cutters (face down) onto the cookie
sheet, a few inches apart.

Next, melt one flavor or color of candy melt (or baking chip) according to
the directions on the package, then pour the melted candy into the
cookie cutter. Fill the cutter to the top and use a knife or small spoon to
make sure the melted candy is distributed evenly inside the cookie
cutter. Immediately sprinkle some colored sugar or candy sprinkles over
the melted candy in the cookie cutter.

Repeat the process, using as many different colors and flavors of candy
as you wish. When all the cookie cutters have been filled, place the cookie
sheet in the refrigerator and leave it there until the candy in all of the
cutters has hardened.

Remove each cutter from the cookie sheet. Scrape off any candy that
might have stuck to the outside of the cutters. Package each candy-
filled cutter in a clear cello bag (available at crafts stores). Close the top
of each cello bag with a gold twist tie or a piece of colored ribbon.

Variations:

Instead of candy melts or baking chips, use your favorite
recipe for fudge or peppermint bark and pour the mixture into the cookie
cutters and let it harden.

Use different cookie cutters for different holidays and events – heart-
shaped cutters for Valentine’s Day, or bunny-shaped or egg-shaped
cutters for Easter, for example.
