I got a large and beautiful Christmas card in the mail from a business I barely know! The paper was so nice and the envelope was lined with beautiful red paper. I instantly wanted to transform it into something else, and a valentine is what it became!
I am thrilled and overjoyed to share with you my final post in my Candy Bark series. It has been a lot of fun experimenting with this delicious craft and now I have an easy "go-to" homemade candy to make for special occasions!
I loved using many of my on-hand supplies to package the candy bark. I did this right after the holiday season, so my packaging is Christmas-themed but these ideas can be adapted for any occasion.

At one point I updated the look of my blog right around Christmas break each year. It just felt like the right thing to do. Last year, that didn't happen. I have been left with my lovely, crochet-laden, somewhat surrealist, definitely L A R G E blog header.
Welcome to my special round-up of chocolate bark recipes! While this year my December holiday project is chocolate bark, through my research for this post I've found that candy bark makes a great treat all year-round!
It has come around to that time of the year again when I decide to make a holiday candy! This is super-exciting because I just love the idea that I can actually cook something. I'm kind of a clutz in the kitchen... However, last year my holiday fudge came out wonderfully (at least one of the times that I did it)!
In fact, last year is the time when I got excited about baking and all the little things I could make. Not surprisingly, this came from a crafting perspective. I was in a Craft Store and there they have an amazing collection of cake decorating supplies. I LOVE the idea of decorating cake pops, or even molding candy lollipops... I started getting all kinds of ideas!
Hello! I am just popping in to say how excited I am about the upcoming holidays! Now that Thanksgiving and Haunukkah have passed, we can count down the days until Christmas on the Advent calendar.
I have been gathering presents and planning my holiday baking for the first time. Fudge. Yup. My first batch was heavenly. Maybe it was beginner's luck because my next two batches weren't so much. They were okay, but not quite to the level of that first batch. I will make my next batch in time for the holiday party this weekend. Wish me luck!
Are you decorating for the season? I have made a few preliminary attempts, especially because I now live in very sunny Florida where each season is pretty darned hot. To my northern body it still feels like summer here!
So good to reconnect with you. Please share your holiday prep plans!! More soon!
