  • Welcome to How To Cook That I am ANN REARDON

  • Today we are going to make 5 different gifts that you can give away to people who love

  • food which is pretty much every one. The first one that we are going to make is

  • Chocolate bark this is such as easy one to make and it is well loved by everyone who

  • receives it. What you need to do is spread out some tempered white chocolate onto

  • some non-stick baking paper in a thin smooth layer. Then let it set then once it is firm

  • pour over some tempered milk chocolate. And spread it over in an even layer over the top.

  • Before that sets move on to sprinkling your choice of decorations over the top. I am using

  • blanched almonds, roasted coconut strips, dried goji berries, pistachio nuts, and freeze

  • dried strawberries.

  • You can use whatever you like, fruit and nut combinations are pretty popular but kids if

  • you are making it for them they tend to like things like candies on top and tiny teddies

  • and lots of more sugar more sweet stuff added to the top there.

  • For a different style of chocolate bark you can pick out different colours I've got two

  • colours here that are in pistachios the green and the purply colour and I've used some oil

  • based food colouring to colour some white chocolate.

  • Spread out a rectangle of milk chocolate and then before it sets add one colour and then

  • the other dolloping it on top there and then just and mix it through. Then before it sets

  • add the pistachios on top and you can of course do that with whatever colours you like.

  • Once they are starting to firm up you can slice them into blocks and then package as

  • blocks like that or you can break or cut them into shards put them into smaller boxes putting

  • lots of slices in there. And they make just beautiful looking and delicious gifts.

  • Next super easy again we have candy cane hearts What you need to do is take two candy canes

  • of equal size and place them next to each other on a lined baking tray and then get

  • a cake pop stick you need a paper one and not a plastic one. and put that down the middle

  • Place them in a hot oven for just a few moments like about 10 20 seconds. If you leave them

  • in there too long they will turn into liquid. So keep an eye on them

  • Pull them out and have a feel and if they are warm enough to bend that's great. These

  • ones are very slightly softened but not quite enough to bend so I'll put them back in the

  • oven for a tiny bit longer.

  • There we go that is much better, now pinch them together onto the stick and use a knife

  • or your fingers just to make them a little bit of a plumper heart shape. You'll notice

  • these are still holding their shape and they are warm but not too hot to touch, if you

  • pull them out of the oven and they look like they are liquid then don't touch, you've made

  • them too hot and you will burn yourself. Once you are happy with the shapes of your hearts

  • you can leave those to cool and go firm again. Then fill each heart with some tempered white

  • chocolate and then sprinkle it with decorations of your choice before the chocolate sets.

  • And then you can wrap those individually in cellophane or if you want to serve them at

  • an event just put them into a little jar that you can serve them in.

  • Another easy gift is the savoury sweet combination of decorated pretzel sticks or you can use

  • bread sticks if you can't get the pretzel sticks. All you need to do is put your tempered

  • chocolate into a cup. Dip your stick in on one end and then tap it to get rid of the

  • excess. quickly roll it in your chosen topping, this is just coloured sugar. Then place to

  • one side to set. If you are using something heavier like m&m's dip one side in then out

  • it on the paper to set and then add more to the top by them by hand arranging so they

  • look pretty. If you just keep dipping it they are going to fall off because they are too

  • heavy. You can use your imagination of what you want

  • on them, you could use sprinkles, or why not crushed candy canes for that minty flavour

  • and that christmassy sort of look depending on the time of year. And then you can just

  • box those up once they are set.

  • Next we have an m&m dispenser I first started making these when I was studying,

  • they are great low cost gift. They look impressive and they take a bit of time and you'll need

  • some tools to make them but they don't cost much at all.

  • You'll need one long square shaped piece of wood.

  • Then you'll need measure the width of your wood, mine is 1.75cm wide. And then multiply

  • whatever your width is by 5. Measure that distance along your wood and draw a line.

  • Saw that through and then repeat that until you have 13 pieces of wood that same length.

  • Then measure your width again if you can't remember what it is and multiply it by 2.

  • Mark that off and you want to cut two of those. Then for our last piece of wood you need to

  • multiply your width by 10 this time, an easy one and measure that across.

  • Now take one piece of wood and place it across one end, then one of the longer bits and put

  • it along the wood and mark where that comes to. Place a piece across the wood and mark

  • that again. Now those two marks there you don't want to

  • cut them all the way through just about 2/3 of the way so that it looks like this. Then

  • place a chisel on the top and bang it with a hammer and chisel out that piece. Then sand

  • off any rough edges from all of your pieces.

  • And now we are ready to to put it together. Take 5 of the pieces and using wood glue glue

  • each one to the next so you end up with a nice square.

  • Take another piece and glue it on two sides and add it on top to one side going across

  • the ones that are on the bottom layer. Not the same way, that is going to give it more

  • strength. Add another one right next to it this time only putting glue on the bottom.

  • Wipe off any excess glue there we don't want any that is oozing out. Then rest your longest

  • piece next to it, don't glue this into place just place it there.

  • Add one bit in front of it, only glueing the bottom. and then one more bit gluing the side

  • and bottom so that is firmly in place. Then quickly remove the long piece so it doesn't

  • get stuck by any little bits of glue. To make the top layer arrange the pieces that

  • are left so that the two little ones are on the middle row so that you get a square hole

  • in the middle. Glue them altogether just like we did with the bottom layer. And just leave

  • them flat on the paper there. I am not putting them on top yet, we will let them all glue

  • those two sections and let them dry first. Take a jar that you like the look of this

  • one is a jam jar. Use a knife to pierce the top to make like a cross shape and then bend

  • the metal upwards. Place it over your wood and using something

  • firm push the metal open into the hole. Don't use your finger because the cut metal will

  • be sharp and I don't want you to cut your finger.

  • So just push it down so that you get a nice open spot there. Add some glue to the underside

  • and then put that into place, then rest something heavy on top while you wait for it to dry.

  • Once it is dry we need to add some nails and they are going to stop the middle bit going

  • all the way through and falling out of our dispenser.

  • Place it in the gap and line it up so that cut out chunk is lined up with one side so

  • that it is open on one side. Mark where the edge of that meets on the other end, then

  • slide it along so the missing chunk is in the centre and mark where that is on the side.

  • Add your nails to each end, I am using rounded ones but if you can't get them normal ones

  • are fine. Now when you put it in and slide it from side

  • to side you can see it stops at just the right points.

  • Grab a candle and rub some wax on the edges and that just makes it run smoothly. You don't

  • want to have heaps of wax on it so if you've got heaps of wax on it just rub it off and

  • then you just want just a really thin layer it just aids it in running smoothly through

  • there. Add some glue on the two outer pieces being

  • careful not to get any on the middle bit and add your top layer across the top. Once that

  • is dry pour m& m's into your jar turn the wood upside down screw it on and then flip

  • the whole thing the right way up. When you push the wood across it releases

  • some m& m's, pull it back so more can fall into the hole then push it across again.

  • And it makes a great gift and as I said it doesn't cost that much all you've paid for

  • is one piece of wood and you've got a jar that you've repurposed.

  • Next we have Chocolate Puzzles these are one of my favourite they are so easy and super

  • cute. ,

  • Take a puzzle cutter, this is for cutting crusts off sandwiches and making them into

  • cute shapes for little kids, but when I saw it I of course thought of chocolate. So I'll

  • see if I can find where i got them online on link to it below if I can. Place it on

  • some acetate or non-stick baking paper or foil and fill opposite sides with tempered

  • white chocolate. Once it is full make sure its going right into the corners and then

  • level off the top. Then add dark or milk chocolate to the other

  • two pieces so you get that nice contrast in your puzzle. And then once it

  • is all set just push the pieces out of the cutter. and you have a quick, cute little gift hat

  • you can give to someone.
