Want to make food gifts in a jar? Layer the ingredients for this choc-almond date recipe in a jar to make a delicious homemade gourmet gift.
This jar-mix recipe was passed onto me by my friend Ange, who received it as a gift and told me how delicious it was. After trying it myself, I have to agree. Thanks Ange!
Layer ingredients into a glass jar (I put almonds at the bottom, then dates, then chocolate squares. Do what ever you think looks prettiest!). Decorate your homemade gift in a jar with a nice fabric circle and some ribbon. I traced around a breakfast bowl onto my fabric to help cut out a nice big circle.
Include a gift tag or card with instructions on how to make chocolate-coated almond dates. You can hand-write a label, or print out my Microsoft Word Label (be sure to insert the name of the recipient's partner, or someone they should hide their chocolates from!).
