Give the gift of sweet treats this Christmas with homemade goodies so easy the kids can get involved too.

As the festive season approaches, you might be looking for some unique gifts for those special people in your life.

After all, our family members, friends, colleagues, children’s teachers, neighbours, essential workers and everyone else in between have been through a lot this year.

This is where homemade gifts strike a different chord. They’re thoughtful, considered and can mean much more than a store-bought item.

We’ve got the perfect solution with our Le Petit Gateau Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies – and they’re so easy, even the kids can make them without much help!

The gooey caramel, delicious chocolate and moreish texture will win the tastebuds of everyone, even those who say they don’t have a sweet tooth.

Follow the below recipe for the best Christmas gift to show your loved ones you care.

TIP: When it comes to wrapping your cookies, try going for a rustic look with brown butcher’s paper red or green twine for a festive touch. Just stack the cookies on top of one another, bring the four corners of the paper together (allow more paper than you think you’ll need) and tie together with the twine.
