I have no idea how to price a tin of holiday sweets.

It has 8 decorated ginger bread cookies, 10 chocolate dipped marshmallow and 10 chocolate covered pretzels, in a decorative Christmas tin.
I sent one with my mom to work as a gift and now the orders are rolling in.
Any one have any suggestions?

The cookies took me about 5 hours to decorate (I made 4 dozen total), ,the marshmallows are rolled in pecans, chocolate sprinkles, toasted coconut, crushed candycanes and drizzled with chocolate. The pretzles are drizzled with red and green candy melts. I don't know if that helps?
Thanks in advance.

Just curious how big are the cookies and the tin? Add the price of the tin into the total. Just a guess but around where I am I'd say about $25.00 to 40.00$. Of course that depends on the size of tin etc.

The tin was 3$, its actually a brownie tin.
The cookies are about 3", decorated with royal icing.
I was thinking about 45$, I added everything up indivdually (3$ per cookie,1$ per marsmallow and .50$ per pretzel ) and 3$ for the tin and the total was $41, so I rounded up.
Does that sound like too much?

I finally got the whole cake pricing thing figued out only to have to start all over again with candies!
