has anyone mentioned cashew truffles in origami boxes? People were super into them a few years back (god, maybe like 5 years back?!) on PPK.

These truffles are SO easy and if you buy those pound chocolate bars at trader joes, super cheap. you can add in orange zest, coconut, peppermint extract or whatever and then roll them in a variety of things. http://www.food.com/recipe/vegan-truffles-33995

Origami boxes are great because they look awesome and you can make them out of old calendar pages or magazine pages or anything really. I dunno if this is the greatest tutorial, but there should be a bunch of places online where you can find instructions.

I'm glad you mentioned these, I had forgotten about them! I think I'll do these for the kid's teachers. So easy and pretty and yum.

I am reviving this thread!
I did a bunch of canning earlier this year, so I'll be giving out pasta sauce and apple sauce and such, but I am also planning on making:
granola
mexican pickled carrots (for my brother who loves spicy pickles!)
apricot jam
raspberry jam
cookies

I think that's all. I love seeing everyone else's ideas!
