Thanksgiving Chocolate Barks on a Stick

Super easy and budget friendly Chocolate Barks on a stick , I made them as thank you gifts for some friends. I think  they would be great as little Thanksgiving gifts for coworkers and teachers .
I made these barks with just white and milk chocolate and I added the red turkey using candy melts (that's pretty much the only ingredients I had at the house at that moment). But for Christmas, I will be making more using dried fruits and nuts and putting them in a really cute cookie tin and giving them to my kids teachers.




 

Disregard the food coloring, I was going to do something and then I changed my mind!
 -Melt the milk chocolate in a double boiler and while the chocolate is still warm pour into a chilled baking sheet lined with parchment paper.Then melt the white chocolate and pour over the milk chocolate.
-Spread the chocolate evenly using a small offset spatula, place the cookie sticks and put in the freezer to set for approximately 20 minutes.

Allow the bark to harden completely before breaking it up into pieces



Turkey Candy Melts


These are super easy, just melt the candy melts following instructions in the packet, spread the candy melt in a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, let it set and using a small turkey cookie cutter, cut the turkeys.

Attach the little turkeys to the bark with a dot of candy melt and your set!




Or you can just put pieces of the bark in a pretty box inside a cello bag.
Then give them away or you are going to end up eating more than you should.

"Neat" idea. Melts in your mouth, not on your hands :)

What a great idea! I'm taking a cake to bible study tomorrow night, chocolate cake with ganache frosting. Since I missed the bible study closest to Valentine's Day, I may just make hearts with mine and top the cake with them.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for posting! I was in a pickle for a cake I have to do at the end of this week that requires perfectly round candy melt disks for emojies. Do you know if plastic cookie cutters would make any difference or not? Thanks again 😊
