Edible Gifts this Christmas
With Christmas right around the corner, we better start ticking off that present list. Instead of the typical candle, pjs, socks, perfume and cologne gift ideas, why not give something a little more special, and oh-so yummy?
These holidays, treat your family, friends and/or school teacher to a batch of freshly baked FruChoc Biscuits, made by your little one. This recipe not only looks and tastes delicious, but is super easy to create.
To make that gift extra special, have your kiddies wrap them up in cellophane (or wrapping of choice), and write out a personalised card, complete with a candy cane.
