Building An Earthship In Darfield, B.C.

We are a family of five living in Darfield, BC.
Our house is six hundred square feet in total and we are feeling cramped.

We have decided to build an earthship!

So starts the adventure ...

Candy cane chocolate bark

Today December 22nd Katie, Mom and I made chocolate bark for our Christmas baskets (Christmas gifts). Katie did the brown chocolate while I crushed candy canes with a rolling pin.



Then I chopped up the white chocolate while the brown hardened.

After 15 minutes I stared melting white chocolate. When it was melted we had to add more than half of the crushed candy canes. When Katie pulled out the hardened chocolate Mom and I poured the white chocolate over top of the brown.

Then Katie sprinkled the rest of the candy canes on top. Now it is in the fridge hardening. Tomorrow we will break it in to pieces.

Hey Helen!
Good job on the blog. I am reading this at 6:45 am and I am now drooling over the chocolate candy cane bark!
Do I recognize the necklace!?!? I believe Katie is wearing one as well. I am trying to be environmentally friendly with your gifts this year. I made your main gift this year and Andrew helped by purchasing some of the items needed to make them. Alex inspected them and Jessica...well, she wasn't home so she didn't get to see them. I hope you guys enjoy them.
Will miss you guys at Christmas this year!
Love Aunt Nancy
