cinnamon pretzels and Christmas granola -- which is just my regular granola with pistachios and dried cranberries added. I usually make hot chocolate mix for certain folks, and Special Holiday Fudge for my youngest daughter. I had never realized how much she liked that fudge until one Christmas she asked if I could send some. Of course, I was only too happy to do so, and have continued to do so since that time.
I have Bran Muffins on the list, as I always give some to my mother-in-law along with a bag of clementines and some hot chocolate mix. But this year I think I will tweak it and bake different muffins -- maybe something gingerbread-ish or something with cranberries. I just don't care for that bran muffin recipe anymore myself, so she may be ready for a change as well!
So, after making that list, check it again for needed ingredients and add them to your grocery list, so you can be sure you have those on hand.
Happy kitchen gifting!
