Make your own Stocking Stuffers - Tasty Nuts
< Back to List of Homemade Stocking Stuffers
Give 'em some nuts.
All it takes is some nice wrapping on your part to dress up some nuts as a gift. Take cues from gift companies and gourmet stores as you consider ways to package your gift. Ideas include:
- A cellophane bag (either fold over the top or gather and tie with ribbon); try adding a homemade label
- A small tin
- A jar with a decorated lid
- A scrap of festive fabric, tied around a plastic bag of nuts by gathering at the top
Take the idea one step further by spicing or candying your nuts. Here's one recipe idea:
- 1 lb pecan or walnut halves
- 2 egg whites
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 325. Mix eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Beat until stiff peaks form. Mix in nuts. Pour butter in a baking pan and add nut mixture. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
