I have done most of them over the years- marshmallows, flavored vodkas, pickled garlic, molded chocolates, sundried tomatos, rum balls, biscotti, truffles, spiced nuts, etc.
What is the hot, unique item for 2006- my family expects it of me (in a good way)- but I don't have anything yet- also they need to be shippable
possible- salted caramels.
what are you creative, trendy types doing this year????
