The holidays are a great time to have a sweet tooth—we’ll call it being a “dessert connoisseur” to class it up a little bit. Below, we’ve rounded up a list of ready-to-gift desserts and snacks that will impress chocolate lovers, pastry experts, and anyone who firmly believes that where there’s sweet, there must also be salty. It’s really a win-win: you get to be the hero of gifting season, and if you’re lucky, your recipients will offer to share.
1 Chocolate Brownies Box
Everyone knows you don’t mess around with brownies: They need to be super chocolatey, gooey, and soft. That’s where these brownies from Edible Arrangements (yep, they’ve got more than fruit baskets up their sleeves), topped with a signature swizzle of extra sweetness, really shine. Gifting them this holiday season won’t disappoint—nor will they last very long (no one eats just one brownie).
2 Chocolate Covered Ripple Potato Chips
A chocolate-covered potato chip is the perfect marriage of savory and sweet. An ideal addition to any respectable snack spread, we recommend going with the ripple kind by classic chip-maker Utz for some added texture.
3 Little Italy Dessert Pack
For the person who appreciates a more sophisticated cookie, this tray by Ferrara Bakery, a legendary spot in New York’s Little Italy, is the ultimate gift. It includes an assortment of classic Italian-American goods including rainbow cookies, peanut-infused pignoli cookies, and of course, the cannolis they’ve been making by hand since 1892.
4 Assorted Cookie Tin
Milk Bar founder Christina Tosi put “crazy cookies” on the map. Chock full of hits like the Compost Cookie (which includes ingredients like pretzels, butterscotch chips, coffee grounds, and potato chips) to the Corn Cookie (it tastes like corn, and it’s delicious), this gift tin is a great introduction to Tosi’s wildly delicious world of sweets.
5 Dominique’s Kouign Amann Gift Box
Dominique Ansel will forever be known as the inventor of the cronut, the croissant-doughnut hybrid people will wait in seriously long lines to eat. But Mr. Ansel isn’t a one-hit wonder, and his kouign amann (a pastry with a sweet crust and a soft, flaky interior) is an even better version of a doughnut. Go ahead, add a new breakfast pastry to your repertoire!
6 Economy Candy Decade Box 1990s
Economy Candy has been selling treats from their Lower East Side storefront since 1937, and they’ve amassed quite a variety of sweets over the decades. This gift box offers an assortment of candy from the 1990s, making it the perfect gift for any millennial who pined for Ring Pops, Fun Dip, and Laffy Taffy while parked in front of the TV all afternoon.
