6 Easy Christmas Gifts (+ Free Printables)

6 homemade and easy Christmas gifts! These candies/treats are put in a snack-size ziplock bag and you can staple on the FREE printable bag toppers!

video tutorial

Above this text is a quick video overview of these easy Christmas gifts. Below is an individual picture of each Christmas bag, the supplies and/or recipes needed, and a link to download the free printable. These printables were designed by the amazing CeeCeeBelle’s! Be sure to check out their online shop for so many cute printables — I own way too many (is that even a thing?!)

A few quick notes on these Easy Christmas Gifts:

  • Each bag has it’s own printable page so you won’t have to print more than what you’ll be gifting.
  • For the pictures and video shown, the bag toppers are printed on glossy cardstock paper. (I emailed the PDF’s to Staples and had them printed there.)
  • A few things that make cutting out and folding the printables super easy is using a paper cutter (I recommend this one), and something to score the paper to make the fold neat (I recommend this one).
  • I found that Zip-loc has the nicest looking snack-size bag, but any snack size bags will work.
  • Most of these gifts are best made only 1-2 days before gifting to keep the treats at optimal freshness (oreo truffles and any with marshmallows included)
  • Do NOT print straight from the website file; make sure to first SAVE it to your computer and then print! 🙂

“Lumps of Coal” Mint Oreo Truffles

Package up easy Christmas gifts using this 3-ingredient recipe to make mint oreo truffles

Course: Dessert

Cuisine: American

Author: Chelsea

Ingredients

  • regular oreos
  • ouncesfull fat cream cheese,softened
  • bagAndes Creme De Menthe Baking Chips

Instructions

  1. No need to separate the oreos – you’ll use the cookie and the creme.

  2. In a blender or food processor, process the oreos (start with 16 and pulse 2 extra if the mixture is too wet) until you get a fine crumb consistency. Pour into a bowl.

  3. Add in the softened cream cheese and mix until a thick and wet dough has been created. This takes a bit of patience. Just keep stirring, you’ll get there! (I recommend using hand mixers.)

  4. Roll the “dough” into even sized balls/truffles.

  5. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt 1/2 cup of Andes chocolate chips for 30 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir for 30 seconds and then return for 15 more seconds if they aren’t all the way melted.

  6. Coat the truffles in the melted Andes chocolate. Shake off excess chocolate and place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.

  7. Repeat by melting the rest of the Andes chocolate and continue to dip the truffles. (I don’t melt all the chocolate at once because it tends to harden fast!)

  8. Let harden at room temperature before eating/placing in the ziplock bag. (Store in the fridge if not eating/gifting right away).
