Home-made gifts are a wonderful surprise and big on sentimental value. The time and effort that goes behind a home-made gift is like grabbing a whole heap of kindness and wrapping it up for someone. This Valentine’s Day we love the idea of home-made gifts that are sweet for the soul. Personalised #DIY chocolate bark is easy, inexpensive and a delicious idea, perfect for gifting.  Watch the video and see how easy it is. Get creative, be crazy with the toppings.  Sprinkle hearts, cupid’s arrows and write a sentimental message with icing. Top your #DIY chocolate bark off with a hand-made card and bingo! Sweets for your Sweet this Valentine’s Day.
