As a foodie who is friends with other foodies, the holidays are full of sweet treats and gift baskets full of kitchen utensils and new products to try. It’s almost a tradition: gift things that you’d like to receive. We love to spoil one another with unique food and drinks that we have discovered over the past year, and it’s a fun and easy way to give something meaningful.
One of my all-time favorite recipes got an upgrade with Don Victor. I have been making these spicy drumsticks for years now after reading a similar recipe in Cooking Light for chicken thighs. I switched the type of chicken and added a few extra seasonings, and it suddenly became a family favorite. What made this recipe have an extra kick of flavor was Don Victor Honey. I found Don Victor Honey in the Hispanic aisle of my local Walmart. It comes in a beautiful package with a tag around its neck. It’s easy to spot if you know what you’re looking for! Don Victor products offer premium quality and superior taste and can be used in a creative gift!
Since it’s inexpensive gourmet honey, there’s room left in the holiday budget for extras. Something that I really like to do is to gift an entire recipe. So, I would make a basket of all the seasonings needed, a mixing bowl and skillet, and a spatula or whisk. It’s more fun than giving a gift card!
The honey even has the comb inside. It’s a treat to know you’re using real honey!
