This is such a cool gift idea.
And to be honest, who doesn't like chocolate?

You need:
At least a pound of good quality chocolate (I suggest Jacques Torresor Trader Joe's)

I used chopped peppermint candy
candied orange peel and dried cherries
peanuts, raisins and mini pretzels

  1. Line a small sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate using a double boiler.
  3. Spread the chocolate into the pan.
  4. Arrange toppings on top of warm chocolate in the pan.
  5. Let it set.
  6. Lick spoon and bowl.
  7. Wrap up and give it away with a cute small hammer to break it up.


Gift the bark along with a cute hammer to make it extra special!
