No butter, margarine, peanut butter or nuts should be used. These fats go rancid too fast in high heat. Butter flavored shortening however can be used.
No brown sugar,corn sugar,honey or molasses should be used. The baked goods with these products will be too soft and possibly become moldy. Only white table sugar should be used.
Divide layers of holiday cookies/cakes/candies etc. with coffee filters that you plan to ship by mail in a large coffee can. If your foodies need cushioning, use marshmallows and add a small pack of homemade hot cocoa mix and a stir spoon tied with ribbon or even dunked in chocolate and covered with cellophane!
