When our sons were in the military, traveling all over the world, I regularly sent them cookies, etc.

I usually placed each cookie, brownie, whatever in a sandwich bag, then layered the individually bagged treats in a box, with a layer of bubble wrap between the layers.

After the box was full, I put a final layer of bubble wrap on top and closed the box. I then put that box into another box that had plain popped corn, styrofoam peanuts or more bubble wrap all around. Sealed and mailed. They never received a broken cookie or other treat.

That's right, Barb. I forgot to add that the popcorn could be eaten.

I don't know Bob, I'm hit and miss in the kitchen.

Here is what I'm wanting to do. I want to send my secret santa recipent pretzels covered with rollos and a pecan on top. I wonder if the rollos will melt. Then I worry the pretzels will break. I love the idea of popcorn cuz it will go so well with the pretzels. Oh. I bought a tin for this big idea. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.


::edit:: Should I use wax paper on the bottom of the tin?
