The official season of Thermomix® gift giving has begun!
Invite the little ones into the kitchen and prepare the best homemade (and edible!) Christmas gifts! Try one or all of the suggested activities… The important thing is that everyone has FUN!
1. Cookies for friends
Prepare cookies for friends at school. Choose a biscuit dough that you can easily cut out into shapes, like the Sweet Shortcrust Pastry. Simply make the first letter of your friends name, or if you are up for it , spell out their full name! After decorating the cookies, wrap the cookies in cute homemade packaging that you let the kids decorate with drawings, stickers or ribbons!
2. Chocolate bars for your siblings or cousins
Since Christmas only happens once a year, there’s nothing wrong with being extravagant! Make a giant chocolate bar and pick and choose some fun toppings! Wrap it in fun colourful paper and put a smile on your family's face. Try the Peppermint Chocolate Bark or the Caramelised White Chocolate Bark.
3. Chocolate truffles for teachers
Whose heart doesn’t melt for chocolate? Roll the chocolate truffles in coconut, crushed nuts or cocoa powder. Make a small handwritten note to go along with the homemade truffles – and don’t forget to try one too!
4. A tin of biscuits for your grandparents
Prepare a traditional tin box with various types of biscuits and cookies. Wrap it in personalised brown paper and festive ribbons!
Next time your aunt and uncle are craving something sweet, you will have them covered! Prepare the dry ingredients for a cake or cookies and placed them in a personally decorated jar!
6. A savoury snack for mom or dad
Whether it's homemade chutney, crackers or hot sauce, mom or dad will certainly love the homemade touch. Decorate the jar and write a homemade card signed by Santa’s little helper!
7. Gifts to donate
Give back this Christmas and make several extra special recipes to offer to charities. You can even pick some toys, books and clothes to donate as well!
8. Edible Christmas tree decorations
To make the countdown to Christmas more fun, make edible Christmas cookie ornaments or even link together multiple cookies with a ribbon to make a beautiful cookie garland! Not only fun to make, but also fun to eat!
