Last Minute Homemade Gift Idea
Yes you can buy peppermint bark at Homegoods, Target or Whole Foods but you can also make Chocolate Peanut bark that is easy, fun and perfect for little hands to help you break apart and bag up for friends, neighbors, teachers and babysitters!
All you need is Almond bark (vanilla or chocolate), unsalted peanuts, some crushed up candy canes or any other candy pieces you want to add. I found the bark at Giant and Target.
If you have a double boiler that is best. Put 4-5 cubes in the double boiler (after water is boiling), melt then spread out on wax paper. Then sprinkle on top of chocolate peanuts, candy canes, m&m etc. Let set up about an hour then break apart.
You can package them in candy bags, boxes or reusable plastic ware. Add a bow and voila a perfect last minute gift!
