Easy 4-ingredient Oreo peppermint bark and food gift wrapping ideas for the holidays.
How to make peppermint bark
Hi friends! Are you ready for Thanksgiving and maybe a little Christmas shopping on Friday? I’m excited to spend the week with family and of course knock out some Christmas shopping Friday morning. I may even put Michael Buble on and start wrapping gifts on Sunday. Speaking of gift wrapping, have you seen the adorable gift wrap at Michaels?
As a #MichalesMaker blogger I’m there quite often, always finding inspiration for new project ideas. So when I spotted the Recollections gift wrapping line I knew I had to use some of it for Christmas gifts. They have wrapping paper rolls, bakers twine, chalkboard stickers, gift tags, clothespins, gift boxes…you name it! My absolute favorite are the red french fry boxes and strawberry baskets! I’ll have a few more gift wrapping ideas to share with you next week but today I want to share a couple quick ideas for wrapping food gifts. There’s also an easy Oreo peppermint bark recipe at the bottom.
This year, I really into buffalo plaid! I’ve picked up a scarf, shirt, slippers and now my obsession is transcending into gift wrap. Check out these adorable deer gift tags and plaid washi tape!
Using the french fry boxes I wrapped the plaid washi tape around and used the deer sticker in the center. I then added a dimensional Merry Christmas sticker underneath. You can find the clear plastic bags in the baking aisle and tie with ribbon.
The strawberry baskets were a little harder to wrap the tape around because of the shape, but you can smooth out wrinkles as much as possible. Here I added chalkboard sticker tags and a kraft paper bow.
OREO Peppermint Bark
I couldn’t show you a few gift wrapping ideas without a recipe now could I? One of our favorite gifts to give during the holidays is peppermint bark. It’s really easy to make and perfect for neighbor gifts or when someone drops by unexpectedly with a gift, and it’s also great for holiday parties. This oreo peppermint bark recipe is made with only 4 ingredients – good quality semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate, candy canes, and Oreos. You can enhance the peppermint flavor by adding a 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract in the melted semi-sweet chocolate or by using Peppermint Oreos.
Oreo Peppermint Bark
- 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
- 12 ounces white chocolate
