I often wind up making some kind of edible gift for the males in my life. Chocolate truffles are one of my favorites to make, along with gingerbread cookies, but I haven't branched out much from there.
So when I saw the newest ebook that two lovely ladies I know put out, I was thrilled to see that they put together 15 wonderful recipes for Edible Gifts.
