When making candies and other desserts or pastries for gift giving, chopped nuts are a nice extra touch. But be sure that your recipient isn't allergic to them. I have a pal who can eat pecans and peanuts but not walnuts, as she's allergic to walnuts. Instead of using nuts, you could use raisins, dried cranberries, chocolate or other flavored chips or morsels, or your goodies could be left plain, to be on the safe side.

When making food gifts please be aware of food allergies & the possibility of cross- contamination. If you have made anything with nuts (or other allergens) please wash everything very well before even attempting to make food items for someone with an allergy. Or prepare that person's food gift first & get it packaged & out of the kitchen before making any other foods. Some people can have a life threatening reaction from even a slight trace of the food they are allergic to.
