Valentine's Bark on a Monday

   It's finally happened! After a week of nausea and feeling super crappy, I finally feel normal. It was so nice teaching today and not thinking in the back of my mind "OK, where's the nearest trash can if I need it?" This week is off to a great start.
   this weekend I made some deeeelicious Salted Caramel Peanut Bark. It turned out really well (there's still enough left for Valentine's gifts). Today when I got home from school I did a little more work on Valentine's gifts, Cake Batter Bark. I made this back at Christmas and couldn't wait to make some and decorate it with lovely heart sprinkles.
   I wish I could say that I came up with this fantastic, birthday cake flavored creation, but I must give credit to its genius creator. I have her to thank for much kitchen inspiration.

Cake Batter Bark
10oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
10oz white chocolate chips
2T vegetable oil
2T white cake mix

Melt chocolate chips with 1T vegetable oil, pour on a wax paper-covered cookie sheet and place in the freezer until hard.
Melt white chocolate, 1T vegetable oil, and cake mix together and pour over cold chocolate.
Top with festive sprinkles and place in the freezer to set.
When cold, break into jagged pieces. Eat the ones that don't look quite right.

  1. YUM! Both of your barks look so delish!! I need to get in the kitchen!! Thanks so much for the sweet comments! Oh and by the way...I just put some cut outs from my silhouette on the plates...they aren't actual heart plates...that would be cute though!!!


I love getting your comments. I read, and am delighted by, every single one.
