sweet treat

A house full of fresh flowers and sweet treats could be any day of the year at my house, but it's super important to have these essentials on Valentine's Day!
Here is a quick and easy recipe for a homemade candy that is a little salty and a lot sweet!
What you will need...
honey roasted peanuts
melting white and milk chocolate
You can keep the nuts whole or do a rough chop and break the pretzels into one inch or less pieces.

Then melt the white chocolate or almond bark in a microwave safe container according to the directions on the package.

Mix the cashews, peanuts and pretzels into the melted bark being sure to completely coat everything as evenly as you can. Place the cookie sheet into the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Next, melt the chocolate almond bark in a
separate microwave safe container. 
Melt the chocolate bark and stir well until it will run in a smooth consistency off of a spoon.

Gently drizzle the melted chocolate over
the chilled white bark mixture.

You can use a toothpick to thin the large puddles of chocolate.

For a little extra sparkle...

...sprinkle decorative silver sugar over the warm melted chocolate.

Place the cookie sheet back into the refrigerator for another 30 minutes until the bark is completely hardened.

Use a butter knife to break the bark into bite sized pieces.
From my treasure-trove of vintage dishes I decided to use the red and green transferware to serve my sweet homemade treats!

It looks good enough to eat!

Serve up your treats to those you love. You can even place a little cellophane around a teacup full of candy and wrap it with a ribbon to give as a homemade Valentine to someone special!

I hope you're inspired to make something this Valentine's Day!

    1. It is yum, and addictive and easy. But also not the healthiest so moderation! If you can.
