looking for inspiration - a birthday gift

curiousbaker | Jan 31, 2005 12:51 PM

Just found out a co-worker's birthday is today. I would like to make her something for tomorrow, but for various reasons would rather something she could take home and enjoy at her leisure, rather than a birthday cake. Would prefer something fairly shelf-or fridge stable, since she wouldn't be sharing with a lot of people, and want something sophisticated - she's a glamour-girl. She also gave me a beyond-generous Christmas present I didn't expect at all, so I would like to give her something particularly nice. If I had had notice, I would have made her some truffles in fancy-pants flavors (Mexican chocolate, Earl Grey, ginger, etc.) but with having to chill the ganache and so forth, I don't think I can manage that by tomorrow. I could definitely pick up some nice chocolate and dried fruits and dip the latter into the former, but maybe someone else has a suggestion for something a bit more unusual?
