Edible Gift Idea: Cream Cheese Mints
I am a gifted gifter. I'm not the type of person who asks what you want for Christmas. I'm the type of person who, through my powers of deduction and reasoning, figures out exactly what you want. I daresay I know what you want better than you do!
I live for that warm smile that spreads over a person's face when they rip that pretty paper open to catch a glimpse of that perfect gift hidden inside. It might not be expensive, or big, or hard to come by, just exactly what they wanted. A wrinkle at the corners of the eyes, a tug at the corners of the mouth. That contagious warmth that began in the first hint of their smile spreads to your heart and keeps you cozy all day.
Some of the best gifts are the unexpected ones. For that kind neighbour that collected your mail while you were away, for that teacher that helped your daughter master the saxophone, for that little boy who shoveled your walkway. Just a little something to say “thank you” at a time when everyone should be thankful for those around us that do things without expecting a reward.
Cream Cheese Mints
I think edible gifts are extra thoughtful and special. Just because it didn't break the bank doesn't mean that you didn't make it with love. Just the fact that you made it with your hands says more than most expensive gifts could.
This holiday season, I decided to make these delicious little Cream Cheese Mints. They're creamy, fresh, sweet and adorable. What's perfect is that you can customize their colour to match the pretty packaging. I popped my cool blue mints into sweet little snap jars and wrapped icy blue ribbons around them and topped each off with a silver ornament and little snowflake tag with silver writing. Super cute!
