Goodies to hand out??

jeniyo Sep 20, 2011 02:57 PM

I would like to make something to hand out to people while visiting relatives next week with the following criterias:

1. Can be made after work, cool, vacumm seal, done within the 2 days.
2. Will survive a TSA and a long flight to Asia, with possible bumps, etc.
3. Will hold for around 2 weeks min.
4. Its humid there, so crispy/delicate cookies are out of the question.
5. Make in a big batch, have around 10 baggies+ and more for snacking

Here are a few of my ideas:
Truffles- infused with something special (might be too labor intensive?)
PB cups in dark chocolate
Roasted almonds (does anyone have a nice recipe with egg white, rosemary and a pleasant sugary coating to share?)

    is some variation of Rice Krispie Treats too gauche?
    magic bars?
    marzipan?
    pumpkin seed crunch, cookies or brittle?
    jellied squares?

      I have a spiced nuts recipe that is sweet and spicy, I use mixed nuts in the big container from BJ's for it.

      I would think truffles would be a challenge w/temp changes or humidity?

      How about Peanut Brittle?

      lmk if you want recipes!
