DIY Gift boxes and Christmas Treats

For my birthday my husband got me a Martha Stewart Score Board.

I have been having a lot of fun with it. I made 22 little gift boxes for my husband's colleagues and I filled each one with peanut butter melt-aways.

I'm not sure how my husband felt about carrying them into work in that tin. I think he would have preferred a cardboard box. I'm planning on posting a tutorial on how I made the boxes. Stay tuned for that.

Peanut Butter Melt-aways
1 lb  bag milk chocolate melting chocolate (I got mine 50% off at Joanns)
1 lb bag white melting chocolate
1 cup peanut butter

Pour both bags of melting chocolates into a microwave safe bowl in the microwave for 2 minutes. Stir the chocolate every 30 seconds until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Mix in 1 cup peanut butter until smooth. Pour the mixture into a waxed lined 9 x 13 pan. Place in the refrigerator to set. Once hard take out of the refrigerator and cut into pieces. When I take it out of the fridge to cut I usually let it sit out on the counter for 15-30 minutes so it is a little bit softer and easier to cut.

These are sooooo...good. They really do melt in your mouth.
