Two Ingredient White Chocolate Candy (and a Giveaway!)

Pin It PIN IT!

Happy Wednesday…er…Thursday, y’all! Wait, it is Thursday right? I have no clue what day/time it is since I’m 6 hours ahead here in Paris. But, I’m having such an incredible time here. We went on a gourmet culinary tour yesterday and I ate so much cheese and fig foie gras. Sweet heavens, I’m never coming home. To stay up to date on my adventures, be sure to follow me on instagram here and on facebook here! But, I’m not here to talk about Paris. I’m here for two things: 1). Share an amazing recipe for the easiest two ingredient white chocolate candy and 2). give y’all a chance to win some amazing baking stuff! But first! Le chocolatè.

I’m not kidding when I say this is a two ingredient recipe. You simply melt white chocolate, put in a mold and add sprinkles of peppermint. That’s legitimately all that is in this. I feel like such a phony, fake, pathetic blogger for even posting this. But my justification is this…it’s the holidays. The holidays are meant to be spent with the people you love, laughing over wine, cookies and flickering lights from your menorah or Christmas tree. Not spent in the kitchen baking for hours. And that is coming from someone who lives and breathes baking and cooking.

These cute treats make the perfect holiday gift. You can package a few of these cute shapes in cellophane wrap with some cute ribbon or place a few of them in some fancy boxes with holiday tissue paper. Or, you can do what I did and make an entire tray just to eat when you’re feeling stressed with holiday shopping, deadlines, finances, etc. Really, just one bite gave me all of the relaxation and chocolate bliss I needed.

Plus, aren’t they just so cute? For the super easy how-to and recipe, CLICK THIS LINK!
