Every year we go through this, what should we get for the teacher? Here are the two homemade gifts we are giving this year. Almond peppermint bark and brown sugar scrub. I made the bark today and it is ridiculously easy. Here is how I did it…

1 package of chocolate chips 1/2 cup almonds crushed 2 candy canes crushed

1 package of chocolate chips
1/2 cup almonds crushed
2 candy canes crushed

2013-12-16 (3)

Melt chocolate chips (I just used a glass bowl over water)
stir in 2/3 of the almonds and crushed candy canes

line a baking dish with parchment paper (I used a small dish but you can double or triple the recipe and use a larger dish)

spread chocolate mixture in dish, not too thin, and use the rest of the almonds and candy cane to sprinkle over the top. set aside to harden.

I needed to leave mine over night. When hardened break into pieces put into a decorative box or bag and voila! Lovely homemade gift. This is so easy, you can let the kids help and they will feel very proud to give it to their teacher.

Since the baby has a cold this week, I wasn’t able to fit in the scrub, but will be doing it tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Night all!
