Chocolate is probably the most romantic food gift there is. The next two gifts I am going to share with you could be paired with a nice bottle of champagne for a romantic holiday gift basket. Truffles, candles and champagne, what could be better?
Again these gift ideas are from the Gourmet Live app for iPhone and iPad:
Cinnamon Candles: Forget cloying scented candles and create your own subtle cinnamon votives.
Here’s How: Glue cinnamon sticks vertically around the outside of glass votives, then tie a colorful ribbon around the sticks. The votives look festive and, when lit, emit a mild cinnamon scent that won’t clash with culinary aromas.
If you want a truffle recipe that is a little less involved, check out this recipe for Dark Chocolate Truffles.
