Bringing a batch of this crunchy, yummy granola to the hosts of your next party will absolutely guarantee repeated invitations for years to come. If you bring along a quart of premium yogurt and maybe even some fresh fruit, you'll provide them, post–party, with a luscious next-day breakfast.
Chocolate bark makes an impressive holiday gift and it's so easy! Instead of melting dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate in a double-boiler, use your microwave to melt them, then add your favorite mix-ins and decorate with some colorful ingredients for a jewel-like effect. Once cool, layer the pieces between sheets of parchment paper in a pretty tin box and tie it up with a ribbon!
