Want to make a delicious holiday treat for teachers, neighbors, or friends this holiday season?  Take a look at these:

Homemade peppermint bark
I simply adore peppermint bark, but this is such a fun way to make it and is so easy to do.

What you need:

  • Good Cook Brittle and Bark Mold
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • White chocolate chips
  • Peppermint candy canes
  • 2 tbs vegetable shortening

How to make stamped peppermint bark

Melt the chocolate chips according to the package directions, then add in 1 tablespoon of vegetable shortening to each and stir.

Pour the chocolate into the baking mold and smooth it out.  Pour the white chocolate over the top and smooth that out too. 

Crush the candy canes in a bag with a rolling pin and sprinkle them on top.

Place in the freezer until set.

Once set turn it over and peel off the baking mold.  Doesn’t this look amazing?

Homemade food gifts for the holidays
Then using a sharp knife separate each of the peppermint bark blocks.  If you cut the block evenly (kind of like using a saw) you won’t risk cracking through one of the blocks.

Homemade holiday treats
Then wrap each piece in parchment paper and place inside a holiday treat envelope.  The ones that I used are part of the new Sweet Creations line from Good Cook.

It’s as easy as this to make fabulous homemade gifts this holiday season:
