When that giving spirit strikes around the holidays, we’ve got good news for you: Your kitchen can double as Santa’s workshop. Turning out your own edible Christmas gifts is as easy as making Betty Crocker Brittle Mixes and putting them in individual packages. Finish them with a festive bow and you’ll have a little something that’ll bring a little sweet cheer to everyone you want to give a gift to, whether it’s your mail carrier, your best office friends or every family member who comes by for a visit. And if you want to make your Brittle Mix gifts extra special, we have some easily achievable upgrades that just take two extra ingredients:
Peanut Brittle with Chocolate and Sea Salt
Crispy and caramel-y peanut brittle is an undisputed classic—but one day, in an indulgent mood, we asked ourselves, “what would make this even better?” A little silky chocolate? A little flavor-boosting sprinkle of flaky sea salt? Why not both? This sophisticated and oh-so-giftable addition to Betty Crocker Peanut Brittle Mix is easy to achieve with just a few minutes’ time and two ingredients. Package it up with some holiday panache and you’ll have a gift anyone would be thrilled to receive!
Brownie Brittle with Chocolate and Crushed Candy Canes
Chocolate plus chocolate equals an oh-so-rich treat, but we’ve added a little something extra that balances the flavor and
makes it perfect for the season: crushed candy canes! The zingy brightness of peppermint is the perfect foil for the rich chocolate flavor of Betty Crocker Brownie Brittle Mix (plus the dip in melted chocolate that we gave it). And, sure, you could get peppermint-chocolate flavor by adding extract, but the little red-and-white bits of crushed candy cane shout “Christmas,” and make them a festive gift.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle in S’mores Kits
Kiss graham crackers goodbye! This sweet little gift bag makes s’mores that aren’t just more
—they’re better than any we’ve had before. The key to this new version is using Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle Mix as a crispy, crunchy backing for your chocolate squares and marshmallow. And since we know you won’t want keep anything this good to yourself, we highly suggest putting together ribbon-tied packets that make an uncommonly sweet stocking stuffer or place setting present.
