Looks like a great gift and well done on putting the ingredients that the recipient will have to have on hand or purchase on the gift tag. I will have to start doing that! LOL!
I usually provide the recipe and leave it up to them to realize what they have to have to enjoy the gift! Thanks for that little tip;-D
Since I’m a peanut butter freak, I may have to give this gift to myself
