One of my favorite parts of the holidays is deciding what treats I am going to make, especially what treats I am going to be sharing with family and friends. But I have discovered that what is even more fun than deciding and making the treats is packaging them up nice and cute. It’s all in the presentation (of course it helps if they taste good too!) But seriously, when I receive a gift that is wrapped up fun and cute I almost don’t care what is in it – I love packaging!!
One of my favorite things to make as a holiday treat is candy bark. I think people get cookied out so candy is a nice change. I have been known to get a little carried away with candy bark. I have made a Valentine version, Easter Version, Fourth of July, etc. You name the holiday I have probably made a candy bark for it.
