Inspired by this post from one of my favorite blogs, I decided to make this easy and yummy recipe for hostess gifts for all the holiday parties coming up. Let me just say, this was super fun to make, and SUPER yummy to eat. If you have little ones around the house this holiday season (cousins, nieces, nephews), you should totally ask them to help out because this a fun/messy/hands on activity.
You will need:
-Milk chocolate chips
-White chocolate chips
-Toppings (crushed candy canes, M&Ms, dried fruit, nuts, etc)
Melt the milk chocolate in a pot over the stove, and once its melted, spread a thin layer over the wax paper on a cookie sheet. After this is done, stick the pan in the fridge for a few minutes for the chocolate to harden.
Next, melt the white chocolate chips over the stove and add a handful of crushed candy canes into the chocolate. Spread this mix onto the milk chocolate. Using a spatula, or fork, swirl the white chocolate to create a marbled look.
Add your toppings to the chocolate, gently pressing them into the chocolate so that they don’t all fall off once the chocolate has fully hardened. Place tray back in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
After the bark has hardened, remove from fridge and break up bark into large chunks. (Embrace the messiness of this part. Do not try to make them even or perfect looking 🙂 )
Divide up bark into gift bags, and bam! You are going to be the FAVE guest at the party :)!
