Ok well I got such a good response to my bring-a-plate salad thread (thanks everyone ) that I thought I would pick the Hubs collective brain again.
So I want to make some little nibblies to fill up 10 gift boxes for adults. Criteria:
- easy to make
- don't go stale
- roughly matchbox size (or therabouts)
I've never done this before and was browsing for recipes but i'm a bit stuck for ideas. Help please!!!

hard toffee? very easy to make.
3 cups of sugar
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of white vinegar
put ingredients in a saucepan
stir over low heat until everything's dissolved
turn onto high heat, don't stir, until it changes colour. this should take 10-15 minutes. if you take it off before it changes colour it won't harden.
turn off heat, let bubbles disappear
pour into patty pan thingos, sprinkle with 100/1000s if you're like me. do that straight away though, it will start to harden immediately.
set in the fridge. because they're hard they shouldn't melt unless it's really hot though.
soak saucepan in water, don't try to scrub it out. water will simply dissolve it further and will make cleaning uber easy.

I'm making rum balls this year. Yum, But they probably go stale, I've never had them around long enough to check though

we are making "Chermoula" mix.....chilli, parsley, coriander, basil, oil, lemon juice etc and putting it in bottles to use as marinades/bastes etc.....but you could use that idea and make dry spice mix of your favourite curry/BBQ spice rub.....a good pressie for men!

white chocolate white christmas is always a big hit with my family!
1cup each rice bubbles & dessicated coconut,3/4cup each icing sugar & milk powder, 200g mixed dried fruit in a bowl. gently melt 250g copha & 180g white choc, mix & pour into plastic wrap lined tray. when you go to cut it up leave it out of the fridge for 5 mins so its not too hard. just store in airtight container & if it's hot in the fridge.

Fudge maybe? Truffles?
There's some good recipes on Taste.com.au for Christmas fudge and truffles.

One of my favourites are Choc Royal Chrstmas Puddings, simply melt whte choc on top of the royal biscuit and before it sets use raspberry lolles and mint leaves to make 'holly', let them set in the frdge and they look awesome, plus, taste way better than the original
We're making some tomorrow for DD's teachers.

250grams of chocolate (either white, dairy or dark)
1 cup chopped marshmallows
150g Turkish delight
Some chopped macademia nuts
Melt the chocolate and pour over all the other ingredients in a tray with baking paper and put in the fridge!

They have a section on taste for Christmas gift ideas...
I think these pudding truffles are totally cute, and if you hate fruit cake/pudding, I'd just use another type of moist cake (mud, for example - white or dark). http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/21169/pudding+truffles
