Holiday Gift Guide- Gourmet Gift Basket



I really love to give gift baskets for the holidays.   They make wonderful teacher  and business gifts.  I was thrilled when I was offered the opportunity to review one of the beautifully packaged gift baskets from Gourmet Gift Baskets.  

The gift basket I received was the Nutcracker Drum Gift Basket.     It offers a delicious variety of snacks. 

This is a list of what is included:
· Red Nutcracker Cookie by Nikki's Cookies - .75 oz. - An all natural sugar cookie covered in dark chocolate, shaped like a nutcracker.
· Green Nutcracker Cookie by Nikki's Cookies - .75 oz. - Another chocolate nutcracker cookie of Nikki's boasts ingredients like Wisconsin farmer's butter.
· Chocolate Peppermint Cookie Brittle by Holly Baking Co. - 6 oz. - This amazing delicacy has a cookie taste and brittle crunch, covered with chocolate and peppermints.
· Peanut Brittle by Old Dominion Peanut Company - 10 oz. - A staple holiday treat, this Old Dominion Peanut Brittle will leave them wanting more!
· Butter Wafers by Lady Walton - 2 oz. - Light and decadent, these Butter Wafers are melt in your mouth delicious
· White Chocolate Amaretto Filled Wafers by Lady Walton - 2 oz. - White chocolate and amaretto give an indulgent twist on a classic favorite.
· English Toffee Caramels by Marich - 2.1 oz. - Milk chocolate surrounds toffee flavored caramel. · Peanut Roll by Dillon's Gourmet - 3 oz. - Sweetly salty roasted peanuts and rich caramel encompass a nougat center of heaven.
· Praline Pecans by Dillon's Gourmet - 2.5 oz. - This creamy pecan delight is a Southern, old fashioned recipe

My original thought was to save the basket and give it away as a gift.  But, I just could not resist trying at least one item.    Then my husband decided to get into it.   My two favorite items were the Chocolate Peppermint Cookie Brittle and the Praline Pecans.    The chocolate cookie brittle pairs so nicely with a delicious cup of holiday coffee or hot cocoa.    Praline Pecans are just one of my favorite things anyway.  Growing up in the South, they are just hard to resist.

The Nutcracker Drum Gift Basket retails for $49.99.   Gourmet Gift Baskets have a wide selection of basket themes and gifts to fit any budget.   Gourmet Gift Baskets makes every basket they sell.  This provides with you great quality.    Check out their website and see the other beautiful baskets available.
