If you're planning on visiting family and friends over the holidays, you might be thinking what type of food presents to bring. When it comes to sweets, it's crucial to think about not just how tasty they are, but also how well they'll hold up to a few hours or days on the road. After all, no one likes to give their loved ones stale cookies or a smushed cake. Here are some homemade foods that you can make and take them along with you on your travel. These have a shelf life of at least a few days, or weeks and won’t get mushy or fall apart during the journey.
Here are some of our favourite recommendations for homemade sweets or foods presents, whether you're going by air, rail, or car or even if you are mailing them across.
An extremely popular treat, fudge also travels nicely. Most fudge can be preserved for at least a week, if not longer, at room temperature. Place waxed paper between each layer in an airtight container. Some of the best fudge recipes are Classic Fudge and Maple Fudge.
Caramels are a fun cooking activity that can stay fresh for up to a week even at room temperature. For spins like chocolate caramels and salted caramels, you may also personalise the flavourings. Choose soft-caramel candies or ginger-cinnamon caramels.
Brittle and toffee may be stored at room temperature for up to two months and are very customisable. Choose a traditional peanut brittle or experiment with various nuts, dried fruit, and other ingredients. Break up the candy and place it in beautiful containers. Try the peanut brittle, pistachio brittle, skillet toffee and classic toffee recipes.
Granola is another fantastic gift since it can be made in a variety of ways and is simply packaged in glass jars for giving. Toss in some dried cranberries or cherries, as well as shelled pistachios, for a festive touch.
