Holiday Food Guide Part 2

Today's continued Holiday Food Gift choices come from Foodzie. (you can see 1-5 here) I love this website because it gives small food businesses an opportunity to sell online and get more exposure then if they just had their own website. So, here it goes...

Idea #6

Cocoa Nib, Coffee Bean, & Pecan Artisan Brittle from Morning Glory Confections. (2 oz $5/5 oz $10) This isn't your grandma's brittle! This brittle consists of cocoa, coffee and pecans to add a kick to traditional brittle. Any peanut brittle lover would love this as a gift!

Idea #7
Butter Cup Collection from Ococoa Chocolates. (9 piece $22)

I love the name of this company! How cute! I'm partial to chocolate. I dream chocolate. I cannot live without chocolate. When I saw this collection of chocolate cups, I was all, ooooh and ahhhhh. Any chocolate lover would be crazy not to want a delicous box of these!

Idea #8
Holy City Chocolate Hot Chocolate Gift Set from Holy City Chocolate ($20)

This company has "cool" written all over it! Their hot cocoa is all natural combined with high-quality dark chocolate chunks, which comes packaged in a 16 oz silver tin with a retro-inspired label lined with witty sayings and ‘50s graphics. You also get an oversized hot chocolate mug with their logo on it. A perfect treat for anyone!
Idea #9
Specialty Mushroom Basket from Gourmet Mushrooms Inc. ($27)

What to give that person that loves to cook and experiment? Why, a mushroom basket of course! This baby contains two pound assortment of fresh organic certified specialty mushrooms - five to seven kinds (depending on harvest)which are arranged beautifully in a wicker basket-shipped overnight to insure freshness. A product guide with information about the mushrooms, how to store and clean, and delicious recipes is included with the basket. How awesome is that?

Idea #10
Ok, I have to end my Christmas gift ideas for the day with something that contains chocolate. Have you ever heard of this before? What a cool idea and you can use it on salads, as a marinade, and even over Ice Cream. Something you can put on your salad AND your mint chocolate chip ice cream? These people should be given the Nobel Peace Prize for making such a product. Santa, please put a bottle under the tree this year.
