This seasonal treat is a cinch to make, and the presentation is just as simple and sweet. Place sets of five candies in clear cellophane bags, staple them closed, then affix decorative paper labels.

What you'll need

  • 1 cup dark or milk chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 15 (4-inch) soft or hard peppermint sticks
  • white nonpareils

How to make it

  1. In a small bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and oil for 1 minute, then continue in 10-second bursts, stirring between heatings. When most, but not all, of the chips have melted, stir the chocolate until it is smooth.

  2. Spread the nonpareils on a sheet of waxed paper. Dip one end of each peppermint stick into the chocolate, then roll it in the nonpareils. Set the sticks on another sheet of waxed paper until the chocolate has set, about 1 hour.
