I love to make baked holiday gifts every year for my friends, neighbors and for teacher gifts. I made chocolate peppermint bark inside of Christmas cookie cutters. I saw this in a kit at Michael’s one year and thought I would make my own version. These are super easy and fun to do with young kids too. We made these for teacher gifts.
This is what you will need:
- Wilton decor bags
- 2 bags Wilton Candy melts – Chocolate and Peppermint (one bag of each)
- 6 small-Cookie Cutters or 4 large
- 2 Medium size Candy Canes Crushed
- Wax Paper
Packaging supplies you will need:
- 6 small Cello bags
Here are the steps to make these gifts:
Step one: Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and set the cookie cutters on the wax paper
Step two: Add chocolate into Wilton’s deco bag and microwave for 30 sec intervals, until all all chips are melted. Next do the same with the peppermint chips.
Step three: Snip off tip of deco bag with scissors and squeeze chocolate into the bottom of the cookie cutter, about a half way up, top off with the peppermint.
Step Four: Add crushed peppermint, then put in to freezer for 30 minutes.
You are all done! Fast, simple, and looks beautiful!
For easy gift giving, package them into cello bags, and tie off with ribbon and a tag.
