So, for Christmas gifts, I am making the following;
> Turtles, but using (salted?) coffee-caramel and hazelnuts and dipping in dark chocolate.
> Bourbon balls made with homemade Nilla wafer-type cookies.
I need a third item that will go well with them. Here are my current candidates:
> Sponge candy dipped in milk. Possibly salted, possibly salted and curried, possibly cardamon.
> Homemade cheese straws. Possibly curried? (Can you tell I love curry?) But I’m thinking it’s too cookie-cookie. At the same time, cheese should go well with chocolate & booze.
> Spicy nuts. Sweet spicy? Any drop-dead fabulous ones you’ve tried (but not strictly sweet ones)?
> Homemade prettzle nuggets—seasoned?
> Pine nut toffee—again spiced??
> Any other ideas?????
