A big hug for Dad from his kids on Father's Day is enough to make him smile, but have the kids surprise him with an edible gift and he'll really be grinning from ear to ear. These simple treats are easy enough for kids to assemble and, with a little help from a grown-up, they're a sweet way to make Dad feel special.

1. "Seven-Layer" Chocolate Truffles

Instead of running out to the store to pick up nice chocolates for Dad, let the kids make them for him. These simple truffles are filled with chocolate chips, coconut, toffee bits, and pecans, and may all get eaten before the day is over.

3. Chocolate Chip Cookie Bark

Maybe if you're lucky, Dad will share a little of this sweet chocolate bark with you and the whole family — but once he's tasted it, there's no guarantee.

4. Chicago-Style Popcorn

Whether Dad has a sweet tooth or prefers the savory side of things, he'll appreciate this snack. That's because it combines caramel popcorn with cheesy cheddar popcorn.

5. Espresso Pepper Salt

Expect Dad to keep this flavored salt by his side all throughout grilling season. Its earthy, spicy flavor profile is awesome sprinkled on grilled meats and can even be used to rim the glass of a Bloody Mary.

6. No-Bake Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies

These decadent cookies require no oven time whatsoever so the kitchen will be kept cool while the kids go to work. Dad will enjoy packing up a couple of these to bring to work every day next week.

7. Everyday Pancake & Waffle Mix

If Dad is the pancake or waffle maker in the house, he'll definitely appreciate a mix that gets him halfway there. Plus, this gift is as easy as just mixing together a few dry ingredients and packaging it in a nice container.
