We have a need. Our adoption expenses are rolling in and we are struggling to keep up. So we have come up with a little fundraiser and it's a yummy one.
Homemade Peppermint Bark.
This is not your average confection. I have researched, sampled, and melted many different chocolates...and finally came up with something that I am truly proud to sell for this fundraiser.
Two layers of velvety Guittard premium chocolate, infused with all-natural peppermint oil and topped with crushed peppermint bits. Not only does Guittard chocolate taste amazing, it is all natural (no preservatives or additives) and is processed in a peanut and gluten-free facility*. Another huge plus in my book: Guittard chocolate is Fair Trade Certified. The crushed peppermint candies are all-natural as well (from Trader Joe's). Each box contains approximately 12 oz. of bark.
The bark will come sealed and inside a box with the "Confections for Connie" label (and a little thank-you note from our family). I think it will make a great gift for the holidays and the proceeds will all go to help bring our daughter home. We have an immediate need of $5,200 (for agency fees), which equals about 500 boxes of bark. Chocolate and I are good friends, so I'm ready for the challenge!
