This gift box was purchased by a client who is leaving for California and her sweet, sweet parents are watching her two children for FOUR days. I repeat, FOUR days. Well, heck yeah they need to paid in hand baked goodness!! It was a gift of appreciation AND maybe just a tiny bribery tool for the grandparents to use right before they rip out all of their hair! (Her kids are almost exactly the same age as mine...so, I feel like I can make these kinds of speculations.)
Anyway, she knows how to put together a tasty gift box. I wanted to keep it, but alas, I had to give it up. It was for the good of the kids... and the grandparents! She chose:
Coconut Macaroons with Bittersweet Chocolate Ganache
Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips
Salted Chocolate Caramels
Homemade Oreos - Oh, her kids are going to be angelic with one of these swinging in front of their cute little faces.
She also got the cinnamon buns for her dad, who apparently loves them. Well, he's going to love these. You pick them up unbaked, put them in the oven on the morning of your choice and delve into some warm, handmade, iced, cinnamon deliciousness. Yep, I should have kept these. Yum.
Have fun in Cali, you two and bring back some sunshine.
