Homemade Gifts are the Sweetest: Nutella & Graham Crackers

Sometimes the best gift you can get are the homemade kind. Especially if it's Nutella, with some graham crackers on the side.

This year I handed out my Nutella (Hazelnut Chocolate spread) as a gift to my friends and family. They went perfectly with the honey Graham Crackers (a recipe from Miette) I made from scratch as well.

They also looked cute all jam packed in jars with a ribbon and tag.


I actually made two different types of Nutella, you will notice one jar is darker, and that's due to the type of milk chocolate chips I used. The darker one was made with Milk Chocolate Guittard, and the lighter one was a Belgian chocolate from a local chocolate shop Schurra's. Both were tasty!



Did you go with homemade treats this year? Or receive any?

 
Notice the ham in the back? ;)

Anyways, it's Christmas Eve and I'm off to celebrate. I hope everyone has truly an amazing Christmas and Holiday season. Enjoy each moment you have with your loved ones and cats...and nutella and crackers.

Love, Franci

    1. He just assumes when the camera is out its for taking pictures of him. Thanks Tracy, I've been baking since college. Although I enjoyed it as a kid too, I did have an Easy bake oven and I even created a recipe for my 5th grade science project. Lol, I don't know why I did that but baking technically is like a science.;)

  3. No way! I got Nutella for Christmas too. It's my favorite snack. I spoon-eat it. What a wonderful present. Today, I had it with banana. Have you tried? It's (somewhat) healthy.
