This holiday season, legit homemade gifts like this Chocolate, Marshmallow, Caramel, and Candied Bacon Bark can help save you money and still impress your family and friends!
If only opening your wallet and handing over vasts amount of money was considered an actual legit workout... I'd be in good shape. Sadly, all it leaves me is a little bit lighter in the bank account.
I totally love the holiday season, but let's be honest. Money flows pretty darn easily in the outward direction this time of year. Giving gifts is one of my favorite things to do, but I also enjoy a credit card and debt-free life (what, no credit cards?! Yup, that's how this household rolls).
Solution? Getting all DIY in your kitchen. Giving homemade gifts is not only super thoughtful (and tasty), it can help you save money this Christmas. Homemade gifts like.... oh hey Chocolate, Marshmallow, Caramel, and Candied Bacon Bark!
Oooo, and it's topped with crushed pretzels as well. I didn't want to put that in the title though, because it seemed long enough already 😉
Tell me you wouldn't love getting a basket full of homemade deliciousness from a neighbor, co-worker, or friend? Especially if it includes... okay, let's break this down:
- ooey-gooey marshmallow
- chewy caramel
- candied bacon
- more chocolate
- crushed pretzels
Yea, this creative chocolate bark is legit. It's sweet, salty, chewy, and ooey-gooey... all at the same time.
And with Kraft caramels and Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows, this Chocolate, Marshmallow, Caramel, and Candied Bacon Bark is also ridiculously easy to put together. It requires no baking (except for cooking the bacon) and minimal effort. And it's totally something your kids can help you make.
Now all you have to figure out is... who are you going to give it to?
I went to Walmart to snag my Kraft Caramels and Jet Puffed Mini Marshmallows. Look for them in the baking and/or candy aisles.
