Holiday Hints: Christmas Baking Baskets

For this week’s holiday hint, I thought I would share pictures of my baking baskets. For several of my friends I put together baskets of baked goods. Even though I’ve already posted almost all of the recipes, I thought I would make a master list of everything I made for you with links to the recipes all in one place (some I haven’t posted yet, but I will update the links once I do). For the bags, I just got some clear cellophane bags and I found the labels and ribbon at Michael’s. (Their Christmas ribbon is 70% off right now so go and get some!) It was that easy and gives them something a little extra special.

I have been searching for containers to put my hot chocolate in for weeks. For some reason, I could not find anything that fit the bill. Either they were too big or just not cute enough or didn’t close the way I wanted them too (I either wanted a suction or screw top). Well, Adam had to work last Saturday and so I sent him to World Market after he got off work to see if he could find anything. These are the too cute containers that my amazing husband picked out. These are seriously better than what I would’ve picked out. He has such good taste!
