These Treats are So Good, You Can Gift Them. Plus, win $50 to Amazon: #SheSpeaksRecipe Giveaway

If you're spending holiday time planning out food to cook or gifts to buy, look no further! We've found recipes submitted by our SheSpeaks members that can double as both. They are treats so delicious and beautiful that they can be given away, shared with friends, or kept for yourself. 

What gifts are you giving this year? Tell us and you'll be entered to win a $50 Amazon gift card!

Mini Strawberry Bread Loaf

This is the perfect treat to bring when you are visiting friends. Or to give to your child's favorite teacher. Or to serve your family for brunch. Or just to eat yourself with a warm drink on a cold winter day. Thanks to SheSpeaks member, MeandMyPinkMixer for submitting a holiday dessert that's so versatile, you almost won't need to make anything else.

Snowball Cookies

There could be a foot of snow outside your window, or it could be sunny without a cloud in the sky. Either way, snowball cookies, submitted by Peachesncream887, are a festive way to celebrate winter. You can easily double the recipe so you can give them away in batches. Just make sure to have extra - it will be hard to resist popping these in your mouth while you wrap them up!

Easy Rocky Road Fudge

Because no dessert selection is complete without chocolate, try this irresistible fudge from emma0420. They are easy to cut into small bites for any holiday table, or convenient to wrap in a pretty box for a wonderful gift. Best part - you can customize the flavors. This version has walnuts and marshmallows, but you can easily put in peppermint crumbs, raisins, pretzel bits, candy pieces or whatever else you prefer. It's even a fun project to make with the kids.

Pumpkin Honey Pie

Sure, you can buy a pumpkin pie, but it will never taste as good as homemade. And with this simple recipe from Hywelda9, you'll never have to eat sub-par pie again. This one's extra special thanks to a secret ingredient: honey. Serve it at your own holiday meal, or give one to anyone who's hosting. This dish  is sure to get sweet reviews!

Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Don't forget the cookies at holiday time! You can hand out these sweet cookies from savingsmania in your cookie exchange, or make an extra batch to have ready if neighbors stop by. Top them with crushed candy cane when you make them for the holidays, or prep them as is, any time of the year.

We can't wait for dessert!

    I don't celebrate any holidays, but I do love cooking and giving gifts to my friends and adopted family! I wasn't raised cooking at all, so I found out late in life that I am very good at baking, so I love to give baked goods as gifts. Sometimes people don't have food in the house because it's the end of the month, and a loaf of homemade bread and muffins can make all the difference. (I know from personal experience.) I love to give lemon poppyseed muffins, and nice and warming homemade white bread!
