Pack this easy-to-make munchie in a sleek glass or acrylic canister adorned with cotton yarn, and it'll be ready to put under the tree. Get that candy-cane brightness by winding yarn in shades of red and pink around the canister before topping with a homemade pompom. —Robin Haas, Cranston, Rhode Island

"This snack is to die for! It was the perfect combination of sweet and savory. My hubby says I could just put a bowl of this in front of him for supper! I followed the recipe pretty much exactly but I used parchment paper on my 2 cookie sheets. Once it was spread out to cool, I decided while it was crisp, it could stand to be a bit crispier. I baked both cookie sheets in a 250F oven for 20 mins. It didn't alter or brown anything other than to just make it a bit crispier. I'll be making more of this as soon as I can get some more onion rings."
