homemade holidays: dark chocolate bark

Okay, so I'm sure this is impressive only to me, (and to my husband who has accepted my ineptitude in the kitchen for what it is... laziness. Hah!) but I made dark chocolate bark to give to friends and family this Christmas. And it tasted GOOD! Really good, in fact!

It's made with dark chocolate, almonds, cashews and dried, unsweetened cranberries (Sheldon's idea), and that is crushed up cashew sprinkled on top (my idea!). Yum!

I guess you really can't go wrong with dark chocolate paired with nuts.

I wrapped each square individually with wax paper then wrapped those with paper that Fiona had drawn on with red crayon. The package turned out quite cute, I think!

One of my new years resolutions is to take more responsibility for feeding my family. Because really, it's one thing to be a college kid eating canned corn for every meal (just ask my roommates), it's another thing to be a wife and mother. I actually contributed a dessert to Christmas dinner this year and I'll post about that later in the week! Miranda Makes Bakes!
