Perfect DIY Gift for Drop in House Guests

I subscribe to the philosophy that homemade gifts of food are always a good idea.  I wanted to make something simple to have on hand for friends and neighbors that drop by.  My solution – Chocolate covered peppermint Joe Joes with a crushed candy cane topping!

Easy DIY Christmas Holiday Gift for Guests

They were fairly easy and inexpensive to make!  I placed the finished cookies in a cellophane bag, tied it with a bow and adorned them with a gift tag from my Etsy Shop!
