ISO a quick Christmas Snack recipe

I am home today, and my wife isn't... so I would like to bake something to surprise her... however, I am not a cook.. I can grill, but certainly not cook.

She gets home in 4 hours, so it'd have to be fairly quick and not require a whole bunch of ingredients... I'm looking for something "different" than we usually make, so no cookies, no pretzels with kisses and m&ms on top, etc. Any ideas on a clever Christmas snack I could make for her for when she gets home tonight?

BTW I'm new here!

Welcome.

I would suggest Truffles, they are easy and amazing (although they are better frozen). I don't have the recipe with me at the moment though...

I'm looking for the Truffles I did for Valentine's day, but they might be a little more involved than what you have time for.
Got a candy thermometer? Caramels are good, or toffee. Mocha caramels are good too.

I have a thermometer... i've gotta find it, probably in our bathroom... is that what you mean?

Mocha caramels sound good... she likes coffee things (mocha is coffee + chocolate right?) and she likes caramel.

yeah that last part about the thermometer wasn't serious at all.. but guess what I found! a thermometer that says "Deep Frying - Candy - Jelly" and it is real big..... like 5 pencils stuck together.

LOL no it sounds like you need to go to the store then! It clips to the side of your pot. They sell them in the baking section.

I will send a private message w/ the recipe because I believe there is a copyright issue if I post it here.
