I found this idea in 2013 and instantly fell in love. 1 - I had all the ingredients in my house, so I could whip it up right then and there. 2 - I love this idea as part of a family gift. Kids, in particular, would enjoy this idea. May I also suggest you add homemade marshmallows and/or chocolate covered spoons to the gift? 3 - Dudes are so difficult to find good quality homemade gifts for. But I don't know any dude who doesn't like food.
