Homemade Christmas Chocolate Bars
Holiday baking can be a great bonding time for you and your loved ones. It combines the spirit of the holidays with the creation of something amazing and delicious. The holiday season is about gift-giving along with festive food, so baking chocolate gifts to hand out is the perfect combination of the two.
Homemade chocolate bars are easy to make and taste so much better than the bars that you can buy on the shelves at your local convenience store. You’ll simply need to get some bar molds and a few simple ingredients in order to make succulent chocolate bars that are perfect for giving as presents.
Spicy, Salty, Minty
Choose from a combination of spicy chocolate, salty or minty in order to present something completely different. Simply grind up some of the candy canes that you have on hand and add them along with graham crackers or other cookies to your base chocolate bar recipe. The salt also goes great with dark chocolate and adds a hint of zest that simply melts in your mouth. For your friends and family that like a spicy taste, add some crushed chili peppers or 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes to the base recipe. They’ll enjoy the dusky, deep taste of dark chocolate with an additional hit of spicy hotness.
Chocolate Bar Base Recipe
Melt 1 cup of dark chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Mix in your ingredients and then pour into the chocolate mold. Tap the mold on your counter to make sure that all of the air bubbles are released. Place the chocolate mold in the fridge and allow it to set for at least 20 minutes. Pop the chocolate out of the mold and then place into gift boxes or bags.
Making your own chocolate bars is that simple as that. When you use dark chocolate you’ll be providing your gift recipients with a healthy alternative to the junk food that surrounds them at this time of the year.
