One can argue that it's cliche and even cheesy to give a loved one a box of chocolates for Valentine's Day and to some degree, I'll agree, HOMEMADE.....anything really...let alone, assorted chocolates is a game changer. Unless they're not into chocol...........let's be serious lol. All I know is if I got some of this any day of the week, I'd be one happy gal.
In this assortment of goodies, I've included MY version of the Hershey's White Chocolate Symphony Bar, but instead of using toffee, I made caramel brittle instead. And you can't go wrong with chocolate covered nuts & dried fruit. It all really is kinda simple to make, but the final result is fabulous.
Assorted Chocolate TreatsIngredients
- 1 bark semi-sweet chocolate
- 1 bark almond bark or white chocolate
- 1 cup peanut brittle
- 1 cup peanuts
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- Melt the chocolate (white or semi-sweet).
- Coat nuts, brittle, and dried fruit.
- Place on a sheet tray lined with wax or parchment paper.
- Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or until chocolate coating has set properly.
And here's a little something I created in the spirit of love. I drew the tree, sunset, and shadows with markers. For overall color as well as the title text, I used photoshop :)
Hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day! To me it's not only a day for lovers alone, but for love in general. So may you enjoy this day with the people or person you love the most whether it's your husband, wife, family, best friends, pets, etc!
Get Your Feast On!
