Two tips for DIY edible gifts that will please anyone

And here we are again with Valentine's Day and gift-giving... And snacking too! If you don't celebrate Valentine's Day, you definitely like to snack (at least once in a while). If you start making our goodies and do a little extra, you will enjoy yourself, and you can also give your loved one or your loved one a gift, for example on Valentine's Day, but just like that. After all, making happy is fun.

For all

It is definitely not out of the question to make a few pieces of each for stock. You never know when you will be overcome by the desire to please a few people around you, perhaps you want to give a gift to your neighbors as a thank you for looking after the dog or to give a small gift to a colleague at work. Edible gifts are perfect for these occasions.

Roasted nuts in cinnamon caramel (from one baking pan)

Vegan and gluten free, what more could you ask for?


Do you also love the sweet smell of roasted nuts as you walk through the markets? It will smell the same in your home when you start making roasted nuts. You only need a few ingredients, 15 minutes of time and a single baking pan. Yes, really no extra bowl or a million other tools, you just mix it all up, pop it all in the oven for a quarter of an hour and you're done!

What will be needed?

- 3 cups of nuts to taste, we like a cup of hazelnuts, a cup of almonds and a cup of walnuts

- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

- 1 and a half spoons of coconut oil

- 2 spoons of maple syrup

- Half a teaspoon of Himalayan salt

- 1 tablespoon of cinnamon sugar (and a little for sprinkling)

- 1 spoon of vanilla sugar (and a little for sprinkling)

- A pinch of cayenne pepper (you can leave it out, but it gives the nuts a kick)

How to do it?

- Preheat the oven to 170 °C

- Put nuts in a baking pan or on a baking sheet lined with baking paper, pour melted coconut oil over them, add sugar, cinnamon, salt, cayenne pepper and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Mix everything well so that the nuts are evenly coated with the mixture

- Bake for less than a quarter of an hour (or until the nuts are fragrant and golden), stir them several times during the process so that they do not burn and they are beautifully crispy on all sides

- When you like them, take them out of the oven and immediately pour the remaining maple syrup over them and sprinkle with a little cinnamon and vanilla sugar, cinnamon and salt. Mix well again

- Try to control yourself and not eat them all while still warm. J Allow them to cool thoroughly before transferring them to glasses or cones, otherwise they will not be crunchy. If there is anything left, decorate the glass (cone) with nuts, add a name tag and make someone happy

Nuts can last at least 3 weeks like this (definitely longer in the fridge). Of course, you can combine the types of nuts in other ways or replace them with different seeds, sunflower, pumpkin and so on.

And you don't like sweets? Try, for example, do-ko-na-lé cashew nuts salted. Mix 2 cups of cashews with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a teaspoon of Himalayan salt, and a tablespoon of your favorite seasoning.

Homemade (hot) chocolate that melts on the tongue

Vegan, gluten free, no refined sugar

This chocolate is perfection itself. You need 4 basic ingredients for it, you can adjust it as you like, it is made in a moment and looks beautiful. If you also want to give a gift to someone (or are someone yourself) who likes to eat healthily and ethically, you can't go wrong with this chocolate. It is loaded with antioxidants, is free of refined sugar, animal-free and gluten-free. Don't expect the hard chocolate you usually buy in stores, this chocolate is similar to English "fudge" and melts on your tongue, it's simply love at first bite.


If you start making it, be sure to use a silicone mold, it will make your work easier, because the chocolate will literally jump out of it by itself and you won't have to knock it out laboriously. If you can't find a mold in a hurry (but get one anyway, you deserve it and it will definitely come in handy), reach for silicone muffin molds or simply "drip" the chocolate with a spoon onto parchment (or baking) paper. The chocolate may stick a little (especially on the parchment paper), but you shouldn't have any major problems anyway.

Prepare for one batch ( the number of pieces depends on the type of mold)

- 120 grams of cocoa butter

- 70 grams of unroasted or fair trade cocoa

- 125 ml of any room temperature syrup (maple never fails)

- A pinch of finely ground salt

- And any decoration and sprinkle on top, sea salt, raspberry powder, vanilla powder, chia seeds or try cocoa beans are great

How to do it?

Warm the cocoa butter slowly (preferably in a water bath).

Add all the other ingredients to it, except those that come to the top, and mix thoroughly.

Pour the mixture into molds (on parchment paper) and sprinkle with selected delicacies according to your taste, mood and imagination.

Transfer the chocolate to the freezer for at least half an hour (or until it hardens) and then enjoy.

Since homemade chocolate melts much faster than store-bought chocolate, store it in the refrigerator or freezer. If you decide to give chocolates as a gift, put them in a bag or box, decorate them and leave them in the fridge until you need to take them out.

TIP No. 1: Homemade hot chocolate

If you thought that this chocolate couldn't get you any more, you were wrong. Not only can you enjoy it in its "ordinary" form, but you can also conjure up an excellent hot chocolate from it. Simply heat up the (plant) milk, throw in one (or two) and stir until everything dissolves. I promise this is the creamiest hot chocolate ever! Already melting the cocoa butter, huh?

TIP No. 2: Hot chocolate on a stick

If you want to give this perfection in the form of hot chocolate as a gift, and also win a prize for the most original delicacy, donate chocolate on a stick: simply insert a wooden popsicle stick into molds with not completely solidified chocolate and let it freeze. Then wrap in cellophane, decorate and add a tag with instructions, for example: Homemade hot chocolate - put the chocolate on a stick into heated (plant) milk, stir until it melts and enjoy the best hot chocolate!
