Can you believe it is almost holiday break? Piglet on has a couple days left and so I have been racking my brain about what to give his teachers. I usually give them a card with a gift card inside but this year, I decided to do something a little more. Hallmark greeting cards are the perfect way to send a little cheer this holiday season.

Now that you’ve got your cards, let’s create a delicious treat to go along with them. Crank up this Pandora station and get ready!
Here’s what you need:
Semi-sweet chocolate bars
Light corn syrup
For this recipe, you’ll be cooking the batter on the stove top in one pot (hello no dishes!). It’s important not to let your butter boil over or let your chocolate burn. Burnt chocolate is pretty much the worst thing ever.
Step One: melt your butter, sugar, and corn syrup together.
Step Two: melt your chocolate.
Step Three: this is the tricky part. Add your eggs one at a time and stir them in quickly. If you go too slow, the egg will start to cook and you do not want that to happen!
Step Four: Fold in your flour.
I used a festive cake liner and then filled my cups up 3/4 of the way with batter. Toss on a couple caramel chips and bake.
I put a few into a mason jar so they wouldn’t get squished in Piglet’s backpack and wrote a note inside the card. Piglet helped me write it. He said, “thank you for being so nice and for playing with me.” I mean, how sweet is that?
