Milk Substitutes for Those Who Are Lactose Intolerant

I absolutely love milk. Because I drink this delicious, refreshing beverage every day, I couldn’t imagine my life without it. Unfortunately, some people are lactose intolerant. Therefore, they can’t safely drink traditional milk from a cow. Thankfully, many tasty substitutes to cow’s milk exist. Almond milk is one of my favorite alternative’s to cow’s milk. Many people also enjoy the texture and taste of soy milk, hazelnut milk, rice milk, coconut milk, and oat milk. On this blog, I hope you will discover the joy of specialty foods. Even if you or a friend can't enjoy the "real thing," there are plenty of foods left to enjoy.

Creative Chocolate Christmas Gift Ideas

If a friend or loved one loves all things chocolate, gifting them their favorite treat at Christmastime is always a good idea. Chocolate gifts are also ideal for a friend who has a sweet tooth, a boss or co-worker, or as a "secret Santa" present at a work or family holiday party. 

Rather than give the recipient a boring, uninspired box of chocolates, put a little creativity and effort into the gift to make it memorable. Take the recipient's interests, hobbies, favorite flavors, and even preferred colors into consideration when putting together the perfect chocolate-inspired present.

Here are some ways to create a one-of-a-kind chocolate gift:

1. Chocolate Gift Basket

Rather than buying a pre-made gift basket, design one yourself using different types of chocolates. Start with a wicker basket and place filler, such as festive red and green paper shreds, in the bottom. Fill up the basket with wrapped chocolate bars, bags of chocolate-covered nuts, and small boxes of chocolate to create a tasty present. 

If the gift is for an adult, consider adding mini alcohol-filled dark chocolate bottles to the mix as a unique touch. Spirits that complement chocolate include cognac, espresso liqueur, and creme de menthe. 

Finish the gift by tying a red or green ribbon around the basket handle. You could also customize the basket with a ribbon in the recipient's favorite color, such as blue or purple, instead.

2. Hot Chocolate Tubes

Design individual hot chocolate servings using glass tubes with stoppers, which you can find at hobby and craft stores. Fill one tube with one serving of a gourmet powdered hot chocolate mix, one tube with crushed peppermint candy pieces, and another with mini marshmallows. All the recipient will have to do is add hot water or milk. Tie the three tubes together with a red or green ribbon to complete the sweet gift. 

3. Homemade Chocolate-Filled Ornaments 

Get crafty by buying hollow plastic ornaments in any shape you desire, such as stars, Christmas trees, or bells. Fill them with red and green candy-coated chocolates, mini chocolate chips, or any other small chocolate treat. When the recipient breaks the ornament open, they'll be in for a sweet surprise.

You can also fill the ornaments with individual servings of hot chocolate mix and mini marshmallows if you prefer. Close the ornaments up and loop thin red or green ribbons through the tops so that the recipients can hang them on their tree before consuming the contents.
