I prefer a meal at home with friends over going to a restaurant, because I find evenings in nicer and more personal.

When I’m invited to someone else’s home, I always try to find a hostess gift that breaks away from the traditional bottle of wine or Cucina soap. It’s no easy task.

I started making little gourmet gifts myself and people loved them. So, here’s a recipe that will delight hosts and guests alike. Be warned, though: the box will end up empty before the night is done.
