Gift hunting? Here are 3 Easy Recipes you can turn into Holiday presents

If there’s a whisk, there’s a way. Whether you’re baking to give or to sell, the holiday season is a great time to showcase your skills. Baked treats make for personal and less expensive gift ideas, and a great business opportunity for aspiring bakers of all ages.  So, get ready to make this Christmas the tastiest and most memorable one yet with festive holiday recipes from The Maya Kitchen.

For a kick to any Christmas spread, whip up a cheesy Jalapeño Dip. Who knew a mixture of pickled jalapeños with loads of cheddar cheese could be an excellent gift idea? Pour it in a colorful canister and chill for the dip to firm up. You can even serve it as an appetizer with nacho chips or crostinis.

The holidays wouldn’t be complete without something sweet, but how about adding a twist to your ordinary caramel syrup with the Vodka Caramel Flavored Coffee Syrup. A dash of vodka, and some coffee liqueur added to a golden brown syrup is the perfect treat for your closest friends or ninongs and ninangs.

This Christmas, it would also be fun to turn baking into a business. Why not earn a little profit out of your hard work so you can buy something special for yourself or your loved ones? The Salted Caramel Double Butterscotch Fudge Bars could be your winning recipe. With the MAYA Butterscotch Brownie Mix and some extra butterscotch chocolate chips and walnuts for toppings, you can make delicious bars of brownies to sell.

 Another great idea is adding cakes, cupcakes, or crinkles to your list. Using the new MAYA Decadence Red Velvet Cake Mix you can create all kinds of desserts using a favorite flavor of many. A lineup of Red Velvet treats is definitely an excellent match to the holiday season.
