With Halloween out the way, we can finally start to think about Christmas! If you want to add the personal touch to your gifts this Christmas, there are lots of unique presents you can make. Get creative and crafty and gift your loved ones with some homemade gifts! Get festive with these top five ideas!
There are lots of recipes online for fudge and some with not many ingredients. Once you have mastered the art of making this delicious treat, play around with some different flavours. My favourite is chocolate and banana! Try out this three-minute fudge from Chocolate, Chocolate and More, it only has three ingredients and can be made using a microwave so it’s great for beginners! Once cut into square, arrange in a Christmas gift box or some cellophane wrap for the perfect edible gift!
