During the holidays I try and get creative and create some of my own gifts and I am SO incredibly relieved and thrilled to have found out about Good Cook’s new Sweet Creations line!! OH YUMNESS! I received the set above that helped me make amazing gifts for some of the teachers and students at my husband’s school. I made the most delicious (and EASY) chocolate peppermint bark!! The whole set came with the silicone mold, holiday treat envelopes and snowflake parchment paper sheets. And of course directions on how to make my own peppermint bark – check out how EASY it is!!
Here is the set I received – you can see on the mold there are holiday words like Merry Christmas, Cheer, Joy, Season Greetings, etc.
First you melt 1 1/2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Once it it melted add 1/2 tsp. of oil and stir it up!
Then pour it into the mold! You’ll do the SAME exact steps again but with white chocolate (1 1/2 c. white chocolate chips melted with 1 tsp. oil).
Pour the white chocolate over the semi-sweet chocolate after it’s melted and you can use the end of your spoon or a fork to swirl it around a bit like I did.
Then I crushed up peppermints (you can use candy canes too!) and sprinkled it on top then popped the whole thing into my freezer overnight.
The next morning I pulled it out and it was SO easy to pull the chunks right out of the silicone mold. It didn’t stick at all. Plus you clearly see the holiday words and letters on the chocolate side which really made it look nice.
I placed the pieces of peppermint chocolate bark directly onto the holiday parchment paper…..
….and then slid it into the gift envelopes! It made beautiful gifts! For about 8 people I did two batches. The Good Cook Sweet Creations Brittle and Bark Mold REALLY made the difference. And the beautiful parchment paper and holiday envelopes made the presentation even sweeter. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my set and want to get a few more so that I can make a bunch of batches at once! Plus I discovered Good Cook’s Pinterest page and am in baking heaven! Good Cook is on Facebook too!
