Chocolate Delights

Fancy holiday treats can be budget breakers especially if the budget is already tight. However, with just a little creativity you can make delicious treats at a fraction of what it would cost to buy them already made. If you like chocolate, try some of these ideas for yourself or for your holiday parties.

Mix 1 bag or box of dried cranberries with 1 bag of dark chocolate chips to create an inexpensive version of a gourmet treat. Melt dark chocolate chips in the microwave. Stir in dried cranberries. Drop spoonfuls of mixture onto wax paper to cool. You can place this delicious mixture on a party table or put it in an attractive glass jar as edible holiday decor in the kitchen. This is an easy way to enjoy a delicious flavor combination. You can also add some nuts to the mixture.

Buy some of the delicious chocolate bars that are available in various flavors such as mint, orange, raspberry, or any other flavor you prefer. Melt the chocolate bar in the microwave. Cover a baking sheet with wax paper, place a single layer of crackers or cookies on the wax paper. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the crackers or cookies and let cool. Cookies such as butter thins, lemon thins, ginger snaps, or shortbreads are good choices.
