The year 2022 will come soon, you need to appease with goodies not only the symbol of the coming year - the Pig, but also the guests who will come to your holiday. Sweet gifts are perfect for such a cause, but why buy something when you can cook everything yourself? In addition, the best gift is a handmade gift!

We offer delicious and interesting recipes for sweets that everyone will like!

 

1. Cakes "Sweet pig"

An ideal option for a gift, you can easily sort the quantity as you wish, and the design will delight!

Ingredients:

dry milk cookies 300-400 g; prunes 150 g; condensed milk 1 can; coconut flakes 100 g; almond nuts 150 g; white chocolate 2-3 bars; food coloring red (2-4 drops); toffees 6-10 pcs.

Grind the cookies into dust, mix with condensed milk, chopped nuts, finely chopped prunes and coconut flakes. We roll up thick balls like cutlets, and the same number of balls, but already smaller (for the head). Melt the chocolate in a water bath, add a few drops of food coloring to get a soft pink color. We roll all the balls in chocolate, connect them together to make the body and head, send everything to the refrigerator for 30 minutes. We warm the toffees a little over the fire (so that they roll out easily), we sculpt thin tails, ears and heels out of them, then also roll them in chocolate and send them to the refrigerator. When the cake hardens a little, we fix the tails, ears, heels, we also make eyes (you can use prunes). It turns out very tasty sweet cakes in the form of pigs,

2. Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

 

The Year of the Pig is coming, so we suggest using products that the symbol of the coming year loves. Pumpkin can be used fresh or frozen.

Ingredients:

pumpkin 300-400 g; oatmeal 250 g; cream 35% 100 ml; sesame 70 g; butter 100 g; honey/cane sugar to taste

Cut the pumpkin into small pieces, put in a deep bowl, pour over the cream, add honey for sweetness and put in the oven for 25-30 minutes. When the pumpkin is sweating, let it cool a little, drain the remaining liquid, add oatmeal and fried sesame seeds to the mass. Mix everything well with your hands, put the plate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Then we mix the mass with butter (it needs to be grated on a coarse grater), sculpt cookies, put them on parchment paper, sprinkle with plenty of cane sugar and put in the oven for 30-40 minutes. After the cookies have cooled, we put them in gift paper with a New Year's pattern, and tie them with a bright ribbon.

3. Iris lollipops in caramel

 

Many people love lollipops, but what if they could not only gnaw, but also chew? Moreover, the taste of toffee will easily take you on a cold winter evening to a carefree childhood, where it was so great.

Ingredients:

toffee 500 g; cane sugar 200 g; pistachios 150 g; sugar beads 100 g

We throw off the toffees in an iron colander, hold over a water bath until they begin to melt slightly. As soon as the fondant mass becomes soft, we transfer it to the board and quickly knead it with our hands, roll out long bundles. We divide the bundles into several parts, twist them with a snail, put them on sticks and send them to the refrigerator for 1 hour. Then melt the sugar in a dry frying pan, and when it becomes completely liquid, dip each lollipop into it. Sprinkle the dessert on one side with ground pistachios, and on the other with sugar beads, send it to the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. You can create a small candy bouquet using artificial flowers and tie everything with a festive ribbon.

4. Egg with wishes

 

Everyone knows about interesting cookies in which people find wishes and advice. But what if you cook and give guests not cookies, but sweet eggs? Moreover, you can write an individual wish to everyone, and it will be very nice!

Ingredients for 6 eggs:

6 yellow balls from the kinder (in which gifts are stored); 5 milk chocolate bars; raisins 100 g; hazelnuts 100 g; waffles 100 g; 1 bar of caramel; powdered sugar; wishes notes.

Melt the chocolate in a water bath, let it cool a little. Grind waffles and hazelnuts into medium crumbs, mix with chopped raisins and send to melted chocolate. The mass should turn out to be sufficiently tight and dense so that it can be easily shaped. We put notes in clean plastic balls, close them tightly and start sculpting eggs, closing the ball in chocolate mass. When we get the desired shape, roll the eggs in powdered sugar, wrap in cling film and put in the freezer for 3-4 hours. You can give in any small basket, putting artificial hay or grass on the bottom.

5. Tartlets "Winter"

 

In winter, it is hard to find fresh and sweet fruits, so I suggest preparing them from what is always at hand, namely canned cherries and pineapples. Therefore, such tartlets are called "Winter", we survive on spins!

Ingredients:

sand tartlets; canned cherries 150 g; canned pineapples 150 g; whipped cream; 1 bar of chocolate; brown sugar 50 g

Melt brown sugar in a dry frying pan, then add cherries and finely chopped pineapple, thicken. If the mass seems too dry, you can add a couple of tablespoons of syrup from the same fruits, directly from the jar. As soon as the pineapple is completely golden, remove the pan from the stove and let the fruit cool. In parallel, melt the chocolate in a water bath, and pour it into a saucepan with a thin neck. When the filling has cooled, collect the tartlets. We put fruits on the bottom, add whipped cream on top and pour plenty of melted chocolate over everything. These tartlets keep their shape for 24 hours if stored in the refrigerator. You can give in a cardboard box decorated with snowflakes.

Sweet and delicious New Year! Give and receive gifts!
