I always make a little homemade something for all my friends and neighbors for Christmas. This year I am giving everyone Homemade Nutella. It is very easy to make and tastes better than the original!
I made sure to save a jar for ourselves. We love it on graham crackers, apples or a spoon! For gift giving I packaged it in small jars with a festive label. I can't wait to give these to all our friends and neighbors this year!
Here is what I used to package my Homemade Nutella for gifts.
The jars are the Small Kilner jars from Pacific Merchants. You can order them here: http://www.pacificmerchants.com/kilner/kilner-preserve-jar-025-liter-9-fl-oz.html
The nice folks at Pacific Merchants would like to give one Plain Chicken reader a $100 gift card to their online store!
I am in love with 2 of their product lines - the acacia wood and Kilner canning jars. The acacia wood line features hand carved, uniquely grained dishes that range from tiny pinch bowls to plates to huge salad bowls and serving platters. Their Kilner canning line is a 150 year old brand of British canning jars, bottles and accessories. The jars can used for everything from storage to drinking glasses to teeny baking dishes (individual pies, anyone?).
