Care package to Iraq

katecm | Jul 23, 2009 12:34 PM

I'm planning to send a care package to a cousin stationed in Iraq, and want it to be homemade. So far, I've sent him trail mixes, fruit candies, etc., that I knew wouldn't melt. However, I thought this time I would see if anyone could recommend new things that will hold up. Will a peanut brittle hold up, or would it melt? And what cookies would be good? Most packages have made it to him in 5-7 days, so it's not too, too long. However, I do know that we have to be careful about melting. Does anyone have anything tried and true? Many thanks.
