'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a spatula was stirring, except for the one making chocolate bark for Christmas Day!
I have one more project for you this month using my favorite Maraschino and Peapod baker's twine from The Twinery. This is the first time I've ever made chocolate bark. Not only was it easy, it was a lot of fun! I made supreme dark chocolate bark and white chocolate bark with pistachios, walnuts and Craisins. Mmm... I'm not a super baker or cook but no one's ever complained. Teehee. I thought these little squares of bark would make fabulous last-minute Christmas gifts.
I decorated the outside of my (coffee) bag with images from Countdown to Christmas and Just Be You. Then I stamped some frames (also from Unity) to create little trays for each layer of bark. They kept wanting to topple over so that's why you see chocolate all over the edges. Just don't look too closely! I tied up the stacks with The Twinery's beautiful twine and they both fit perfectly inside the bag. Roll it closed and you are done.
I hope you all have an incredibly wonderful Christmas with your family and friends. I will have more new and exciting project ideas for you in the New Year!
