The kids and I have been working on last minute Christmas gifts this week. We're making this (not so) fancy honey-roasted peanut bark for our chocolate-loving aunties. I had the idea of using holiday cookie cutters to shape the chocolate and make it a bit more festive. You can try this with any kind of bark!
You will need:
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening
1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts
Assorted cookie cutters
Melt chocolate and shortening in a double boiler or microwave in short 30 second bursts until melted. Line a large pan with waxed paper and arrange cookie cutters. Working quickly, pour chocolate into cookie cutter shapes and top with peanuts.
Take a heavy pan or baking dish and place it on top of your cookie cutters to prevent the chocolate from seeping out. Let cool.
Carefully pop the bark out of their molds and indulge!
