The way to their heart is through their stomach...right! Today we bring you a few edible Scrappy creations. These are so simple, quick and everyone likes chocolate!
Let's start with Bark! I use Merkens Chocolate for most of my candy recipes. It is great tasting and can be used in the microwave and melted vs tempering. I go here, The wonderful Classic Cake Decorations store in Garden Grove , CA. Visit the store if you can or the website if you get a chance. If not just ask for Merkens chocolate wherever you search and you will be happy with your results.
For simple Bark, you need a 1 pound bag of chocolate, about 4 oz. of crunch or filler (there are many) a cookie sheet and a microwave. Melt the chocolate in 30 second internals until done, mix in your crunch or filler and pour on to a cookie sheet. Place in the fridge to speed up the setting process (about 10 mins) break into 1 inch by 1 inch pieces and package accordingly.
they hold just the perfect amount!
Milk Chocolate with Rice Krispies, one of the most popular combos I make. My personal favorite is a white chocolate with lime and raspberry crunch. You can also add some liquid flavors for more variety.
Lastly, regarding the packaging at the top of the post. I used clear candy bags and scrapbook paper and some ribbon. I folded the bags, covered the fold in paper and put two holes for ribbon to add some color and help secure the bag shut. These are very simple ways to show someone you care, get scrappy with some chocolate today!
