Homemade Chocolate Birthday Gifts

homemade chocolate birthday gifts

  • Make someone happy with homemade chocolate birthday gifts.
  • You can make cookies, a cake, personalized cupcakes.
  • My favorite is homemade fudge, which I'll be sharing the recipe.
  • What can make the gift even more special is if you put your gift in a personalized gift tin.

Nancy's Creamy Fudge

My sister, Nancy, gave me this recipe and I think of her every time I make it.

2 jars marshmallow cream
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
24 oz chocolate chips
1 1/2 cubes butter
4 cups sugar
2 cups chopped walnuts

On low heat melt butter, add evaporated milk and sugar. Cook until sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to medium. Bring mixture to a rolling boil then cook for an additional 12 minutes - stirring frequently.

Remove from heat and add marshmallow cream and chocolate chips. Stir until well blended. Add nuts. Pour into 9x13 inch greased glass pan. Makes 5 pounds. More than enough for the one of the most perfect homemade gifts ever!

Personalized Birthday Gift Tin

Here are some beautiful tins. I especially like the ones that you can put a picture on. These would really help make your homemade chocolate birthday gifts special.

Homemade Chocolate Gift Basket

Create Your Own Gourmet Chocolate Gift Baskets! Give a Dark Chocolate Gift Basket (the perfect chocolate birthday gift): Depending on what type of basket you'd like to make, here are some items you may need: basket, chocolate, fruit, gift. For the gift you might add the cookbook above.

Select a beautiful basket; purchase truffles or add homemade fudge (recipe above).

Hot Chocolate Gift Basket

Here's what you'll need for a perfect homemade chocolate birthday gift:

~ Ghirardelli Hot Chocolate Mix - Double Chocolate:
~ A Ball Mason jar or decorative jar
~ Cardstock, ribbon, pen
~ A bag of gourmet marshmallows
~ A large basket
~ A cloth napkin
~ A few mugs
~ A hot chocolate cookbook

Fill the jar with the cocoa mix. Put a personalized label on it.

Print the cocoa directions on cardstock. Punch a hole through the corner of the card, thread a ribbon through and tie the ribbon around the rim of the jar. Or you can use a personalized label.

Add a bag of gourmet marshmallows from Whole Foods or your local health food store. Select a large basket to put everything in. Line the basket with a cloth napkin. A plaid one looks really cute!

Add a few mugs and a small gift. Here are a few ideas: a chick-flick DVD like Bridget Jones Diary (my all time favorite!), a good book, a pair of mittens or a knitted scarf. This hot chocolate gift basket will be a hit.

Personalized Chocolate Cupcakes

Another great treat is homemade cupcakes. Make them special with these cute personalized wrappers! Fill the cupcake to really make them unique.

And don't forget the birthday card!
