These are so cute and fun.
I have not met a dog that doesn't go crazy over these, the most time consuming part is rolling out the dough and using the cookie cutter. You could skip the cookie cutter and just cut into squares.
This link from Sunset magazine also has other great homemade gift ideas. I added eucalyptus essential oil to the scrub (also using the essential oil in the pinecone fire starters below).
These really are the easiest to make, melt chocolate, dip, sprinkle, let dry. I used multicolored sprinkles, pecans, peanuts, coconut, and clear crystal sprinkles on either white or dark chocolate - really the possibilities are endless.
For those that have and use a wood-burning fireplace (none of our relatives in Florida will be getting these!).
Using fresh cranberries and pumpkin this bread smells like the holidays. You mix all ingredients in the bowl, put it in the loaf pan and bake (recipe says 50 minutes, but every time it has taken 85 minutes). Easy-peasy.
