Ready or not, it’s time to start (or continue) the Christmas gift thoughts.
Isn’t it more about the love behind it and less about the actual gift? I think so. That makes getting the perfect gift so less important.
In the meantime, homemade sweet gifts warm every heart (and stomach). Sprinkle a lot of loving in your Christmas baking this year. See our Sprinkle Supply – 17+ choices for $2 or less.

Salted-Caramel Cracker Candy
Here’s a little gift idea. Use it for your cookie exchanges or neighbors (like I’m going to do for mine). Don’t be scared off by the candy thermometer. It’s really not that difficult!
1 sleeve crackers (soda, thin wheat, Nut-Thins, etc)
1 c. butter (no substitutions)
½ c. granulated sugar
½ c. packed light brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. cider vinegar
¼ tsp. Flaky sea salt
All ingredients available at The Country Cupboard
- Line large jelly-roll pan with aluminum foil; lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange crackers on pan in single layer.
- In large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter on high 1 minute, or until melted. Whisk in granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and vinegar until smooth. Microwave uncovered on high 6 minutes in 2-minute intervals, whisking thoroughly after each interval before returning to microwave. Microwave 1 to 2 minutes more or until dark amber (or until candy thermometer registers 320 degrees F).
- Carefully remove caramel from microwave; pour over crackers in pan. Spread caramel into thin layer using offset spatula; tap jelly-roll pan on flat surface to evenly distribute. Sprinkle with salt, if desired. Let cool 15 minutes, or until caramel hardens; break into pieces.
- Purchase clear plastic bags at the dollar store. Wrap with cute ribbon and a tag. And there you go – a super easy – cute gift.
