i was especially excited to make something this year because i was so busy the past few months with a nasty deadline that i didn't have time for my normal christmas baking/craft craziness.
i wanted to pass out individually packaged treats this year, and remembered the white chocolate bark with berries and toasted rice from 2012. the colors work perfectly for valentine's, and i could incorporate a cheesy pun as well. i did run out of white chocolate though (meaning i ruined a huge batch), and had to make a batch with milk chocolate.
the heart strawberries on my tags were cut with my silhouette. i had a great time assembling everything. it was the best part.
this is a special batch i made for bffbf. i got these candy molds from ikea a while back, and decided it would be a good time to test it them out. i filled the middles with toasted rice and freeze dried berries as well. i didn't bother tempering the chocolate, so the bottoms look lumpy, but that's ok. they still TASTE good.
oh, if you've found yourself in need of a last minute valentine's card, you can print out the one i designed a couple years ago (wow, was it so long ago?) for free.
