There's nothing better than a handmade food gift to make someone feel really special. Start preparing for Christmas by making edible gifts to share with family and friends, from jams, chutneys and homemade liqueurs that are best to make ahead, to Christmas cookies and velvety chocolate truffles, made nearer the time. These food gifts are all the more delicious (and thoughtful) when homemade.
It's easy to transform these edible Christmas gift recipes into beautifully wrapped presents if you start collecting glass jars and bottles, cellophane, pretty ribbon and tissue paper to package your gifts.
Sweet sticky mini florentines are a staple seasonal favourite, and these light and dark chocolate ones will make a lovely present.
