hello, break.

12.22.2011

It's been so very quiet around here. I apologize. But quite honestly, I need a break. Thank goodness -- that break officially begins today.


So, thus begins seventeen glorious (school-free) days of respite. I leave you with a festive treat. 


white chocolate rock.

>> 2 cups white chocolate discs
>> red or green food colouring 
>> 2 peppermint candy canes (crushed). 

Melt chocolate in the microwave on medium power, stirring every minute. Pour onto parchment paper and spread with back of spoon. Drop food colouring (two to three drops) over chocolate. Swirl with a knife. Sprinkle with candy cane. Let cool, and when hardened, break apart into bite-sized pieces. 


Enjoy! I'm off to a ugly christmas sweater party with friends.

  9. white chocolate is my absolute favorite...almost as good as dark. I have a bar of 80% dark chocolate with coffee from my best friend that I've been hoarding for months.

    such pretty pictures, Abbey!

  15. Sounds like a good treat, but I probably stick with the cookies. Why? Because I have already had too many sweets this holiday. Those look way too yummy :).
