Holiday Treats

Tis’ the Season…. to eat sweets?  If you are anything like me, your days are filled with obstacles of chocolate, cookies, brownies, candy and Christmas baked goods. Working in a school is very hard because this tends to be the go to gift for teachers from students. How do I avoid this?

I make my own baked goods that I can take with me in case I feel the creeping of a sweet tooth. I am not going to pretend that I never caved or that I don’t want some of the awesome things that are put in my face. I noticed that the days I caved were the days I didn’t have anything with me. I thought I would compile some delicious treats that I enjoy making. I will also share my Almond Bark recipe! Enjoy and Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to all.

Kimberly’s Easy Bark


  • Almonds, hazelnuts and Macadamia Nuts (you can combine or make separate batches of each type of nut. I’ve done many different versions.)
  • Dark Chocolate Chips


  1. Chop nuts in food processor.
  2. Place nuts on a piece of Parchment paper. (I use a silpat-best investment ever!)
  3. Melt chocolate chips
  4. Pour melted chocolate over the nuts and quickly mix them with a rubber spatula.
  5. Spread the bark out on the paper and allow it to cool and dry for 6-8 hours.
