**duplicated from original post in Home Cooking**
So, I'm going to be meeting the boyfriend's extended family for Christmas. I know his mom is gluten-free, and as far as I know nobody else has dietary restrictions. Without going over the top, we'd like to make something together to bring/contribute to the holiday meal. Any suggestions for something (probably either a pre-meal nibble or a dessert) that would be gluten-free, delicious, and accessible to an audience that includes several kids and not-so-adventurous eaters, and overall is not super spice-tolerant? Suggestions appreciated... I bake and cook, so pretty much anything goes!
