Almond Bark and a Homemade Gift

I packaged up some lovely Chili Burn Peanut Butter Cookies.
See Recipe Here 

Made a batch of Almond Bark,
1 cup of white melting chocolate.

1 cup of dark melting chocolate.

Melt the white chocolate in microwave and spread with chopped up almonds.  Place in fridge to speed up hardening time. 
Melt the dark chocolate and spread over hardened white chocolate.  Spread with more almonds.  Harden in fridge again.

Break into pieces!

Made some tags on the Cricut, which could easily be made by hand!

I packaged up the cookies and bark in clear cellophane bags.  You can get them at the dollar store.

Put a cupcake wrapper on a jar of homemade pear sauce,...made the same way applesauce is made but with pears,
I happened to have a nice little wooden hat box with a lid.  I tucked the lid in behind the gift to add a backdrop and packaged in cellophane with a nice bow!

And called it a homemade gift basket and a day!
