I was in need of a non-Christmas hostess gift recently. Now, I'm a baker and I love making Christmas cookies, but for this occasion they just weren't right. This was not a Christmas party. So I did some thinking, did some blog searching, and came up with a jar of spiced nuts. I know, I know, spiced nuts are really something that you only make at Christmas, but this was a gift for people who aren't really into sweets (what? I know). So the spiced nuts were what I came up with. And you know what? They were so good that I might bring them for hostess gifts year round. So there.
The jar is a repurposed molasses jar (from all of the Molasses Cookies I made over the holidays). The paper came from my new favorite find LollyChops. She has designed all sorts of beautiful, beautiful freebies and I was beyond excited to find them. And so grateful that she takes the time to make them available.
