I was taught that good guests never arrive empty-handed. At holiday time, I’m always looking for new homemade presents to bring instead of wine or flowers. This year I discovered a fabulous host/hostess gift – homemade chocolate bark candy with dried fruit and nuts.
There’s a lot to love about this chocolate bark. It’s super easy to make, no-bake, and quick too. It’s not messy to clean up afterwards, there are endless variations, and it looks fabulous presented in a gift box or bag, surrounded by nice tissue paper. It’s addictive too – sweet, but not cloying; unusual, but appealing to the less adventuresome eaters too. And at less than $5 for an 8 ounce gift box or bag ($6 or $6.50 if you count the fancy box or bag), it's an inexpensive present.
