Gone are the days of regifting fruitcake that nobody ever wants to eat. Food gifts are a welcome treat during this season when you allow yourself to have more than your usual share of dessert and when second breakfasts won't raise any fitness-conscious eyebrows. So to help you pay it forward, we've rounded up some tasty recipes that you can make in the kitchen and give out as gifts to family, friends, and loved ones. Happy holidays, Candy Girls! We hope you have a super yummy one.

  1. Caramel Sauce
    To top off practically anything and everything in your pantry with—cookies, bread, pancakes, and even a spoon so you can eat it on its own. No judging here. 
  2. Garlic Cream Cheese and Mushroom Spread
    When you've had too much sweet stuff, this is just the right amount of saltiness you'll want to welcome in your life. 
  3. Mango Curd
    You can use this as a filling for chiffon cake or even top your mom's cheesecake with it. Either way, it will be a sweet final touch to anything.
  4. Tinapa Mousse
    You can even include a bag of fresh-out-of-the-oven pan de sal to go with this.
  5. Cinnamon Peanut Spread
    Because peanut butter is so mainstream. Here's a twist! 
  6. Nutty Mushroom Pate
    Throw in a bag of bruschetta and your recipient will be asking you for more! 
  7. Trio of Healthy Salad Dressings 
    Because even your fit friend needs  
  8. Crab and Artichoke Dip
    Print out a card with a cartoon crab to give your friend a hint on what's inside the jar! 
  9. Cashew Butter
    For nut butter lovers everywhere! 
  10. Hummus
    Pair with some pita, and you've got a winner.
