Hi all! It’s Taryn from Design, Dining and Diapers. How are ya today? The Holidays are just around the corner, can you believe it? During this time of year, I’m always looking for fun and easy gifts for hosts, neighbors, friends, teachers, well just about everyone! I find that the best gifts to receive in those situations are ones that you can eat (or am I the only one that thinks that?!).
Today, I thought I’d share a quick edible gift idea for those special people in your life. These Chocolate Almond Clusters packaged in a homemade gift box (or store bought one) will definitely be a hit.
These little treats are so easy to make. You can whip up a whole batch in no time and have all of your gifts taken care of for the season.
I used my Silhouette Cameo (using this download) to make my homemade gift boxes for this delicious chocolates, but you can just as easily pick up simple brown paper gift boxes at the craft store or online.
Oh so delicious! And not too bad for you either, right?
Melt the chocolate, almond butter and vanilla together in a sauce pan with the burner on low. Once melted stir in the almonds until coated and then spoon the clusters onto freezer paper.
Stick them in the freezer for one hour and then they are good to go!
