The Recipe for Happiness this Holiday Season

The best holiday gifts aren’t always the biggest or most expensive ones. Sometimes they’re the smaller gifts that were handmade with love. And not only can you tailor these sweet treats to people’s individual tastes, they’re also easy and affordable to make. Win-win!

Holiday Stocking Stuffer Guide

In the age of gift cards, it’s rare for a holiday gift to truly surprise and delight. Luckily, homemade treats can still make people feel special and brighten up their holiday. All it takes is a little time in the kitchen and some help from C&H® Sugar.

1. Gifts From The Heart – And Hands

Everyone knows the phrase “It’s the little things that matter most,” and it’s never truer than during the holiday season. Stocking stuffers are sometimes overlooked because they tend to be small. But when those “small gifts” are fresh-baked sweet treats, lovingly made with C&H® Sugar, they don’t seem so small anymore. Especially when you see those big smiles. 

2. Stocking Stuffers Made With C&H® Sugar

The most cherished holiday gifts usually aren’t the most expensive gifts. In fact, they tend to be the most affordable ones. It’s the thought put into them, along with the reaction they get, that makes them priceless. These holiday recipes are the perfect stocking stuffers; they’re delicious, they’re unique, and they’re small enough to fit in such a small space.
