For Each Batch (about 36 mini muffin sized holly jollies):
1 Package Almond Bark (white or chocolate)
36 mini muffin papers
2 Cups of one or more of the following (get creative!)
- Salted Peanuts
- Rice Krispie Cereal
- Dried Cranberries
- Other salted nuts
- Your favorite dried fruit, chopped to the size of raisins
Line a mini muffin tin with mini muffin papers. Place almond bark in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for a minute and a half; stir. Return to microwave and microwave for about thirty seconds at a time, stirring each time, until bark is smooth and creamy.* Remove from microwave and stir in two cups of your choice of add in. Spoon into mini muffin papers and allow to sit until cool and hardened. You can put them in the refrigerator to speed up the process if you like.
I got this great idea from www.southernplate.com
For mine I just did a test run for this year and made a small amount with white chocolate bakers chocolate and dried cranberries, then a batch with semi-sweet chocolate mixed with a symphony bar, then added some party peanuts.
