How to Make a Chocolate Book

The tasty Hungry Happenings blog has baked its way into our hearts with a new recipe for creating edible books with fruit leather and honey-scented white chocolate–the perfect treat for your book party.

Follow this link to see the whole recipe, but you will need white chocolate, honey, fruit leather bars, a rolling pin, ruler and a pizza wheel or knife.

Here’s more about the recipe: “If you are helping with a school party, are hosting a graduation party, or are looking for a teacher’s gift, why not try your hand at making these edible leather books? I used raspberry, cherry, strawberry, and apricot fruit leather and found that the apricot leather was tougher, thicker, and dryer than the others. I had to add some honey to the pages to make them stick. Try to find fruit leather that are very fresh (look for the expiration date on the package) for the best results.” (Via)
