Ultimate Rocky Road - erinmadethis (9 of 9)

So, I spent my weekend packing these guys and some gingerbread marshmallows {yes!} into tiny brown boxes. Mariah Carey was played, rocky road was eaten and fun was had. Salted dark chocolate, sour cranberries, pistachios, salty nuts, chewy caramel and marshmallows have combined to end the search for the ultimate rocky road. And with that, I am done.

I think I’ve done pretty well at hand making a LOT of gifts this year, but the time has come to call it a day. I have enough for everyone and I must stop buying/making/eating. So, I’m turning it over to you guys. I’d love for you to add a link or 7 to the link up below to the foodie gifts YOU are making this year. And although I’m apparently done, I can’t wait to see what you got!
